Sylvia B. Leff Obituary
August 23, 1925 - November 28, 2016 Sylvia Leff passed away peacefully on November 28th after suffering from a long illness. Sylvia was born in Chicago, Illinois but moved to Los Felix, California as a very young child. She graduated from Marshall High School and lived most of her adult life in Sherman Oaks. Sylvia was a dynamic, stylish woman with a strong zest for living. She loved to travel around the world, play cards (especially bridge), read, dance, watch old movies and go to the Theater. She also appreciated a good party, martinis, and a sublime glass of wine. She enjoyed competitive sports both as a participant (tennis, bowling, golf) and as a spectator particularly football, baseball and tennis. However, nothing brought her more joy than her children and grandchildren (except maybe her many dogs, most recently Ruby). Sylvia is preceded in death by her husband of 46 years Robert G. Leff and is survived by her children Bruce Joseph Jacobson, Kenneth Steven Jacobson, Holly Arden Leff-Pressman; grandchildren Phillip Rubin Jacobson, Molly Ann Montealegre, Kelsey Lynn Pook, Reilly Morgan Pressman, and Gianna Rose Pressman; and great grandchildren Sara Raylin Jacobson and Elias Grant Jacobson. A Celebration of Life service will be held this Thursday, December 1 at 12:30 pm, at Mount Sinai Memorial Park located at 5950 Forest Lawn Dr., Los Angeles.
