Sylvia worked for the San Jose Unified School District for over 31 years as a paraeducator. Her passion was educating and working with kids to succeed in school. She was very generous and charitable to various organizations. Sylvia was kind-hearted and always had a helping hand to those in need. She enjoyed spending time with her family, provided care to her grandchildren, and took an active role in their lives. Sylvia also loved traveling, reading, and walking her dog. She would occasionally go on camping trips with her husband Terry and son Brian.
