Former Arden Heights resident Sylvia L. Delfino, 79, of Manalapan, New Jersey, a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, died yesterday at CentraState Medical Center in Freehold, New Jersey.
Born Sylvia Favale in Brooklyn, she went to high school there. She moved to Arden Heights in 1972 and relocated to Manalapan in 2001.
She and Joseph Delfino had been married for sixty years and never spent a night apart, said her son, Joseph.
His mother cared about everyone, he said. "She was just loving, and a wonderful soul"
Mrs. Delfino's favorite leisure pastime was going to Atlantic City, where she enjoyed playing the slots.
She was a thirty-year parishioner of Holy Child R.C. Church, Eltingville, and attended mass faithfully.
Her daughter, Victoria Delfino, died in 1999.
Surviving, along with her husband and son, are her daughter, Deborah D'Ambrose, and four grandchildren.
The funeral will be held tomorrow from the Matthew Funeral Home, Willowbrook, with a Mass at 11:00 a.m. in Holy Child Church. Burial will follow in Resurrection Cemetery, Pleasant Plains. Published in the Staten Island Advance on May 1, 2011.
