Hello, Sylvia was married to my uncle, Brian Wofford, before marrying Ed. She doted on him, and made him very happy until his death. She was always kind and loving to me and my family. I send prayers for peace for those left behind. Carol

Ed, I was saddened to hear of Sylvia's death. She was a special and caring lady and I always enjoyed playing golf with her at Wolf Laurel before she had to stop playing on that mountain course. Of course she was out of my league. She was the perfect hostess and we all enjoyed being with her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love, Minnette Sailors

I’m so sorry to hear about Sylvia. I played golf with her a lot on the Savannah woman’s group. We also used to play a lot together. She was such a nice lady. We always had a good time together.
