Sylvia Ann Parker, 84, a beloved resident of Hahira, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, at Fellowship Home Brookside. She was born on February 12, 1940, in Hahira to the late Charlie Gordon Tyler and Minnie Lee Weldon Tyler. Sylvia dedicated 30 years of her life as a secretary for the Lowndes County School System. Her passions included tending to flowers, showcasing her culinary skills in the kitchen, and cherishing Sunday gatherings with loved ones.

She will also be lovingly remembered by her sisters-in-law, Kathleen Culpepper, Dorothy Parker, and Mary Parker, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Sylvia was preceded in death by her parents, brother D.C. Tyler, and sisters Verna Glass, Fron Johnson, and Virginia Lewis, as well as several brother and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews.
