♥ ♥ ~ Aunt Sylvia - My Godmother ~ ♥ ♥
Sylvia was the oldest of seven children. Her birth name was Asimo, but she legally changed her name to Sylvia when she was 13. She graduated from James M Coughlin High School in Wilkes-Barre in 1941. On December 16, 1944, she married Willie Wharton at Kingston, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. They had two daughters: Cora May and Jane Mary, who died shortly after she was born. She was also Godmother to two of her nieces: Star Kline and Sylvia Weaver, her namesake.
Sylvia worked at several jobs over her career. Her first job was working as a waitress at her father's restaurant – The Faust – located on Public Square in Wilkes-Barre. She later worked at John Frye Shoe Company, Rea and Derick Drug Store, and the Westmoreland Club.
My Aunt Sylvia was a resilient woman. She lost her infant daughter at the age of 30, and became a widow at the age of 43. She never remarried, and raised her daughter, Cora May, alone - and outlived her as well. Her family is now reunited in Heaven - may they all rest in peace.
