With heavy hearts we announce that our beloved sister, Sylvia, breathed her soul away into the Saviour’s arms, on November 28 2017, at the Pavillion Monseigneur Ross, a caring, loving home for the elderly. Her brother Guy, and her sister-in-law Bonnie, were by her side when she passed.
73 years old, Sylvia gave up her soul in peace, to be with her deceased loved ones, husband James, baby brother Ralph, her father Aaron, and her recently departed mother Caroline.
Sylvia was born in Gaspe, the first daughter of Caroline Morris and Aaron Drody. She was the oldest of seven children (Ralph, pre-deceased). She grew up in Douglastown, then moved to Montreal. In 1976 she met her husband James Ross. They later moved to Niagra Falls, Ontario, before finally returning to Quebec. They built their home, and settled in Hopetown, where they lived happily until James passed in 2001.
Sylvia continued living amongst her friends in Hopetown, until her health deteriorated, making it necessary for her to move to a care home. She spent several months in Maria, Quebec, at St. Joseph’s care home, before being transferred to the Pavillion Monseigneur Ross, in Gaspe, closer to her family.
Left to love and keep Sylvia’s memories alive are her four brothers, Alex, Burton (Irene), Guy (Bonnie), Perry (Doris), her sister Marlene, her adopted sister Debbie (Glenn), her many nieces and nephews, her daughter Rose, and her grandchildren (Melissa & Brendan) Sylvia was a very memorable person, who had a special way of befriending people around her. She will be sorrowfully missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know her.
To allow for all the family members attendance, Sylvia’s wake will be held the evening of July 23, 2018 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 9:50 a.m. on the day of the funeral in Douglastown. The funeral service will be held at St. Patrick’s church in Douglastown at 10 AM on July 24, 2018. Sylvia’s burial will follow at St. Andrews United church, in Hopetown, on July 25, 2018 where she will be laid to rest with her deceased husband James.
The Drody family would like to extend our gratitude to the extremely compassionate staff at Pavillion Monseigneur Ross, for their attentiveness and loving care, through our sister, Sylvia’s, process of crossing over. We will always remember the kindness they showed her, the special care they gave her, and the special friendships they made with her.
Mom's and Sylvia's funerals will be held at the same time in Douglastown.
