Sylvia spent her first 5 years in Meadow Lake Saskatchewan. The family moved to Victoria, where, following school, she later married Robert Caley. Sylvia had a zest for life, was very kind and had a great sense of humour. She enjoyed activities such as walking and hiking, gathering with friends for a friendly game of cards, meeting socially for dinner, and cooking for friends and family. After spending her early family years at home with the children, she worked in a wide variety of jobs including sales clerk, office admin, working in a bakery, banking & finished her work life owning the recycling depot in Ucluelet. She remarried in 1985 to Albert Burt, following which they moved to Ucluelet where she lived until 2017.
