Sylvia Rae Willford Stucki Obituary
Sylvia Rae Willford Stucki, devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend passed away peacefully at her home on October 26, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer. 
Sylvia's life has been one of dedication, love, work, gratitude, friendship and fun!!!
She was born July 11,1937 in Kimball, Idaho, to Frank and Wanda Willford the third of ten children. She lived in many places and considered herself part "gypsy". Her favorite childhood home was Harpster, Idaho. She graduated from Bonneville High School where she enjoyed twirling, dancing and where she courted her future husband, Hardy Stucki. They were sealed in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple and then moved to Germany where Hardy served in the military. 
In 1961 they moved to Rockford, ID where she learned many things about living a happy, busy and contented farm life. She raised eight happy children and she was their biggest fan supporting their endless activities.  
In 1991 the family moved to Cody, WY where she and Hardy opened a successful Bed and Breakfast, utilizing her supreme cooking and entertaining skills. After ten years they moved to Preston, Idaho and enjoyed friendships through serving as missionaries for the special needs young adults and teaching English to the Spanish community. They were also called to serve an LDS mission in Singapore and clearly touched people's lives around the globe. Their last move to Salt Lake City kept them close to family and provided excellent medical care from Huntsman Institute and Rachel, her Hospice nurse.
In every place they have lived, they have made lifelong friends and left a legacy of friendship, faith, and love with memories that will last forever.  
Sylvia was a woman of many talents and excelled in sewing, quilt making, redecorating, and unmatched creativity in all areas whether she was wielding a needle or sledge hammer. She found her greatest joy as a Grandma; playing, wrestling, feeding, pranking, and loving on her 46 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren.
