Sylvia Margaret Anderson, a loving wife, sister, and aunt, passed away on September 27, 2023. Born on November 2, 1948, in Krakow, Poland, Sylvia was known for her intelligence, generosity, and thoughtfulness.
Sylvia moved to the United States where she became a proud citizen, maintaining her dual citizenship with Poland. She was fluent in her native language, often speaking Polish with her family, and made it a point to visit her homeland annually.
She was a dedicated and loving wife to her husband Richard Anderson, whom she married on July 14, 1990. Their bond was strong and they enjoyed travelling to many places around the world together. Sylvia was also a beloved sister to Aleksander Obydzinski and his wife Maria, and a cherished aunt to their children, Aneta, Urzula, and Krzysztof. She was also a dear sister-in-law to Richard's sisters, Barbara Dudzik and Karen Quid, and her husband Greg Quid. Sylvia was a beloved figure in the lives of her many nieces and nephews.
Sylvia earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Loyola University in 1999 and went on to pursue her Masters at Loyola Graduate School. She was a lifelong learner, always seeking to expand her knowledge and understanding of the world.
She used her education and compassion to serve others through her work at the House of Hope. Sylvia was also an active member of the St. Anne Ladies Club, where she formed many meaningful friendships and contributed to the community.
Sylvia was an intelligent woman with a generous spirit. She was always thoughtful, considering the needs and feelings of others before her own. Her warm heart left a lasting impression on everyone she met.
Sylvia's life was a testament to her strength, resilience, and love for her family and heritage. She will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her. As we mourn the loss of Sylvia, we also celebrate her life and the profound impact she had on those around her. May her soul rest in peace.
