Sylvia Fowler Brys McGregor, age 92, a Lake County, Ohio, resident for 70 years, passed away peacefully June 26, 2017.
She was born Feb. 7, 1925, in Ashtabula, the daughter of Howard J. Fowler and Sylvia Blazier Fowler. She married her first husband, Joseph S. Brys, in 1945, and they had five children. Joseph died in 1970, and in 1973, she married Charles L. McGregor who died in 2010.
Sylvia was a kind and gentle lady, a friend to many, and devoted to her children, 11 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. She was a wonderful mother who raised her children while holding down a full-time job at a time when many women did not work outside the home. She was a graduate of The Andrews School for Girls and returned there as a staff member, working for 30 years until her retirement at age 70.
She loved reading, learning, playing bridge, and good music.
Sylvia is survived by her children, Joseph H. Brys, Martha (John) Matuska, William (Pamela) Brys, Helen (Dennis) Lutz, and Maribeth (Larry) Kalb; and grandchildren: Thomas Lutz, Therese Evans, Margaret Matuska, Timothy Brys, Mark Matuska, Christine Vander Naald, Julie Dearing, Matthew Matuska, Jeanette Kalb, Mary Vidal Brys, and Stephen Kalb.
A memorial service was held July 3 in Mentor, Ohio. Burial was in Oakdale Cemetery, 328 N. Market Street, Jefferson, Ohio.
It was Sylvia's wish that contributions in her memory be made to the Roberta Lee-Harriet Gray Scholarship at Andrews Osborne Academy, 38588 Mentor Ave., Willoughby, OH 44094.
