Sylvia loved to laugh and carry on with friends and family. Her grandkids have special memories of playing Loteria for snacks and Yahtzee for change with her.

She was preceded in death by her loving parents; brother Nestor Soliz; sisters Guadalupe Rodriguez, Enriqueta Valdez, Elena Alvarado, San Juanie Valdez and Yolanda Banda; husband Jose Francisco Vera; great granddaughter Everly Hammond.

The family is following her wishes of a direct cremation with no memorial service and would like to thank everyone for their condolences and prayers. 

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Seydler-Hill Funeral Home.
