ELGAR, Sylvia Joan - Passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones, on April 20th, 2021, following a brief battle with cancer at the age of 64. 

Sylvia was the cherished daughter of Arthur and Joan Elgar; loyal sister to Barbara (Ted), Vincent (Louise), Joy (Dave), and brother-in-law Mike; doting Aunt to Devon (Bryan), Michelle (Mike), Shannon (Kam), Greg (Ashlyn), Brittany, Paige, Jessica, Brandon (Jennifer) and Ryan; and Great-Aunt to Jackson, Nixon, Baker and Maclean.  Sylvia was one-of-a-kind. 

She was thoughtful and reliable, intelligent and generous, and above all, she adored her family.  We will think of her often and will remember her always with love.
