Sylvia Kessler Bidna Obituary
April 4, 1928 - January 11, 2018 Sylvia lived her life with style, dedication and a sense of humor. David Bidna (d. 2002) to whom she was married for 52 years, and their children Howard (Beth), Lisa (Ross) and Eric (Diane) and six grandchildren, were the loves of her life. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Sylvia and Dave were active supporters of Democratic, civil rights, women's, Jewish and educational causes. Always a partner with Dave who was Chair of the Department of Secondary Education at San Fernando Valley State College (now CSUN), Sylvia was president of Faculty Spouses Club (she would not be happy if we used the former name: Faculty Wives). She and Dave were founding members of Temple Judea in Tarzana, and honored in 1988 by the State Legislature and the Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley for their decades of political activism. Sylvia loved tennis (especially her latest tennis attire) and was careful to remind everyone not to schedule anything when she was at her step aerobics class. Funeral services will be held at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park - Hollywood Hills, 5950 Forest Lawn Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90068, on Sunday, January 14, 2018, at 3:00 p.m. Donations may be made to the David and Sylvia Bidna Scholarship Fund at Cal State Northridge, 8111Nordhoff Street, Northridge, CA 91330.
