Sylvia was a simple lady.  She enjoyed the outdoors, painting, playing games on her tablet and was always looking for a good Yahtzee or card game.  She liked going to the beach, but most important to her was the quality she spent with her family.  She was a devoted and loving mother and grandmother.

The family will observe a private burial in Vermont.  The Dowds-Snyder Funeral Home of Mount Vernon is honored to serve the family of Sylvia H. Forbes.
