Sylvia was born November 11, 1940, to Melvin Harvey Siebel and Lovita Grace Seibel (Gould) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Her early years were spent in Michigan, Maryland and Washington, DC.
In 1951 the family moved to southern California. In 1955 they spent a year in Arizona where Sylvia attended Tombstone Union High School. A year later the family settled in Las Cruses, New Mexico, where she completed high school and enrolled for a short time in the Agriculture and Mechanical Arts College in University Park.
While residing in Las Cruses, Sylvia was baptized and became a member of the Church of Christ (Temple Lot).
Also while in Las Cruses, she contacted hepatitis and was sent to Bemidji, Minnesota, where she recovered and spent one term at Bemidji State Teachers College.
She briefly returned to Las Cruses and then settled in Independence, Missouri, where she was employedby Old American Insurance Company.
She then decided to join the US Army as a registered nurse. She spent 11 years in the service, being stationed in Japan, Texas, Missouri, and Alabama.
Sylvia then returned to Independence and worked for the VA Hospital.
In 1982 after her father's passing, she moved to the family farm in southern Missouri, caring for her mother who passed away in 1985.
In 1988, Sylvia was joined in wedlock to Virgil Addie, who preceded her in death in 2004. She spent her remaining years on the family farm.
Though we will miss her we are confident that she has gone to a far better place.
