    To the family of Sylvia,
    My sincere condolences to the family of Sylvia. I grew up as a close friend of Sylvia’s on the Big Coulee Reservation from toddler to adolescence as my father, John Roberson, was her teacher at Big Coulee Day School for many years. I have been trying to locate Sylvia for the past few years and now was finally able to find her – unfortunately through this obituary. I am extremely saddened to learn she has now departed. I hope I can connect with her siblings through my address provided here. Please feel free to contact me as I miss the good times we once all shared on the “Res.” It will not be the same without Sylvia, yet I will always cherish the fond memories we shared in our childhood friendship together.

    of Sylvia’s on the Big Coulee Reservation. My father, the late John Roberson, was Sylvia’s teacher for many years at the Big Coulee Day School. I have been trying to find Sylvia for the past few years and unfortunately have now learned that she has departed us. I am extremely saddened by this news as I was hoping to reunite our friendship. Please feel free to contact me at this e-mail address and I would love to hear from anyone from the Big Coulee Res. I will extremely miss Sylvia, yet will always cherish fond memories growing up as childhood friends. May blessings be upon you and your family.
