Sylvester, Annina (Walsh) COHOES Annina A. (Walsh) Sylvester, 66, died peacefully on January 8, 2018, surrounded by her family's love. Born in Troy on May 24, 1951, Annina was the daughter of Irene King Walsh Hegarty who survives, and the late Myles J. Walsh; and the stepdaughter of William Hegarty. She was raised in Troy and was a graduate of Troy High School. She later attended Hudson Valley Community College. Annina was a veteran of the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged and for her service she received the National Defense Service Medal. She was employed by the New York Telephone Company for many years and retired in 1998 from Verizon. More recently, Annina worked for Boscov's Department Store as a part-time employee. Annina enjoyed working as a poll watcher for the Albany County Republican Party. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and was very proud of her Irish heritage. One of her favorite places to visit was Walt Disney World in Florida and did so as recently as last year with her family. She had also visited Ireland.

In addition to her mother and stepfather, Annina is survived by her loving children, Beth A. Fronczek (John) of Waterford, Jeff P. Sylvester of Clifton Park, Timothy P.
