Sylvia served the community her entire adult life, both as an educator and a volunteer. With her passing the community lost a force for good, along with her wealth of knowledge on Oscoda history. She will truly be missed. Our condolences to Sam and her entire family.

Sylvia was one very special soul that will never be forgotten. Even as we mourn, we can remember the great times spent together teaching and at luncheons; and be comforted by Sylvia's caring and loving personality. I will miss her laughter and storytelling. We can celebrate a life well-lived by Sylvia. It is not the time we spend on Earth, but the love of life Sylvia shared while here. To her family and friends my deepest sympathy.

I first met Sylvia as my daughter's third grade teacher. Then I crossed paths in many ways through the years. I was a volunteer timer at one of the canoe marathon races. I was "inside" the starting enclosure who clapped and applauded when Sylvia Curley Harmon was acknowledged for her leadership and commitment to the event. She shared some books with me and she shared some of her spiritual journey with me. Sending hugs as she continues her journey on the other side of the rainbow bridge. --Barbara Wesselhoeft
