Tim, I am so very sorry for your loss. Mothers are very special and its so very hard to loose someone you love so much. Her love for you will always be with you.

We are glad to have had the chance to know Sylvia. She was a good and faithful friend to Fannie Mae even when she was ill herself. We are thankful for the connection we made.

Timothy & Karen, I am so sad to hear of your mom's death. She was an amazing, special woman that I had the honor to met and get to know. Her sense of humor, laughter, and wit always had everyone laughing. She told me many times she was so blessed and proud to have a wonderful son and amazing daughter-in-law. She touched many individuals during her life and I was blessed to be one of them. She will be missed but her memory will forever be in my heart. Deepest sympathies and prayers during this difficult time.

Timothy & Karen, We are so sad to hear of your mother's death. Our love and prayers go out for you. God bless you for taking care of her while she was sick. At just the right time - God's time - He called her to her eternal home where there is no sickness or pain.

Jack & Mary Bruce, Jonesboro, GA

I am sorry for your loss. It's never easy losing the ones we love to sleep in death. Our heavenly father Jehovah knows how it hurts us and has made a promise to us. It is found in his word the Bible at Isaiah 25:8. Yes he will swallow up death forever and remove everything thats brings us sorrow. What a privilege to look forward to! May these reminders encourage you and your family through this difficult time.

Tim and Karen, our hearts go out to the two of you. Mrs. Sylvia was such a sweet lady. She always had a smile and a kind word every time I had the privelege to talk with her. The love that you and Karen had for her was evident in your care for her over the last several years. Ours prayers are for comfort and peace for the family during this time.

David and Tina Crapse, Rincon, Ga

We are feeling your pain and sorrow. Know that we love you both and you know I love Mrs. Sylvia. Going to miss her but her memory will remain in my heart.

Faye and Sonny Hodges, Port Wentworth, , Ga

Tim & Karen, There are no words sufficient to ease the pain you feel right now. Please know that my prayers continue to be with you both as you go through this difficult time. I pray you find solace knowing she is with your father & our Heavenly Father & is rejoicing this very moment. She will continue to look down on you & feel the same pride she felt every day of her life! As she was the "best mama a son could ask for",you too were the best son & daughter-n-law she could ask for!! Love & prayers, Lisa

Sylvia Louise Smith Smith, 81, of Savannah, went to spend eternity with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, May 6, 2017, with her son and daughter-in-law by her side.

She was born in Charlotte, NC, on November 6, 1935, to R. Ward and Vivian Smith who preceded her in death.  Also preceding her in death was her beloved husband, George E. Smith, and a brother, John R. Smith.

Sylvia was a very sweet lady—truly a reflection of the Proverbs 31 woman.  She was loved and adored by everyone who knew her and she never met a stranger.  Her unending wit and humor was something she carried until the last days of her life on this earth and was enjoyed by all.

She was a member of Faith Primitive Baptist Church and formally a long time member of Morningside Baptist Church.  She taught Sunday School to both children and senior adults, was a member of the WMU, and served in various church positions and committees over the years.  She was a member of the Gideons Auxiliary for many years as well.  In her earlier years, she enjoyed bowling and was on several teams.  She was an avid reader and enjoyed doing crossword and word puzzles.  She was absolutely the BEST “Mama” a son could ever have.

Left to cherish her memory is her loving son, Timothy W. Smith, and her amazing daughter-in-law, Karen K. Smith, who served as her primary caregiver the last year and a half of her life.  Also surviving are several nephews as well as many brothers and sisters in Christ.

A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, May, 10, 2017, 10:00am, at Forest Lawn Memory Gardens and officiated by Pastors Dean Robbins and Everett Tumblin.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances can be made to Faith Primitive Baptist Church, 3212 Bee Rd., Savannah, GA  31404, or Hospice Savannah, P.O. Box 13190, Savannah, GA  31416.
