Obituary for SYLVIA DARLENE REID

Our beloved Sylvia Darlene Reid was born on August 16, 1956, in Washington, D.C., to the late Allnutt Reid, Jr. and Flora Hall Reid. Sylvia's formal education began in Washington, D.C. and ended with a high school diploma from the Sacramento, California School System. More recently she furthered her education by matriculating at the Delaware State University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree in education. Sylvia's marriage to Bernard Turner ended in divorce. After completing high school Sylvia joined the United States Air Force where she remained for eight years. While serving our country faithfully, she received numerous awards in various categories. She was honorably discharged in 1980. Sylvia made her home in Wilmington, Delaware after her stint in the Service. She became a member of Tabernacle Gospel Church where she worked with the Sunday School students. She has a great love for all of the children with whom she was in contact. She had also been affiliated with the Eastern Star. Sylvia was employed with the Social Services Department of Wilmington, Delaware, where she came in contact with many families who needed not only material goods but a kind and encouraging few words, which Sylvia gave freely. She loved to travel and went on numerous cruises with friends and relatives. She also enjoyed reading. Sylvia was content around her family and enjoyed very much visiting 'in the country' as she referred to Calvert County. On Tuesday, February 7, 2012, God, in his infinite wisdom and compassion, saw it fitting to call Sylvia to eternal rest at St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware. Her demise leaves a void in the hearts of the family and her many friends, but we will always remember her with love and affection. These survivors are left to cherish her memory: devoted sister, Denise D. Reid; nieces, Shannon Reid and Lorraine Adams; nephew, James Bundy; great nieces, Destiny and Cynthia; great nephews, David, DeMarkus, and Caron; aunts, Naomi Perry, Beatrice J. Fletcher, Mildred L. Bailey, Phyllis H. Reid, and Ruth N. Reid; uncles, Maurice Hall, Jesse J. Reid, Sr., Kenneth M. Bailey, Sr., and Spencer E. Sewell; God-children, Robert and Raquan Jordan; many close cousins; her extended workplace family; other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Allnutt, Jr. & Flora Reid; grandparents, Reverend Benjamin and Rosa Hall, and Allnutt, Sr. and Essie Reid; brother, Michael Reid; aunts, Mary Ross, Theresa Bowman, Rose Jackson, and Gladys Sewell (God-mother); uncles, David hall, Leslie Reid, Charles Bowman and Melvin Ross.
