|Birth: ||May 3, 1893|
|Death: ||May, 1988|
The youngest of 5 children: three girls and the two boys who died before they had a chance to grow up. She was a maker of hats, mother to one son Kirby, a heartbroken widow at 58. Shorter in stature, she sang in the church choir along side the very tall Helen Bailey and would say, "we must have been a sight". She lived most of her life in Maple Ontario having a laugh with the other old church ladies, lying about her age and driving her 4 grandchildren crazy.
She owned a blue 1968 Oldsmobile with a V8 engine and drove that car as if she were the principle driver for Penske Racing. She never once, not even when she was 85, hesitated to back that car into a steady stream of traffic and jack rabbit her way home. One day she stepped on the gas instead of the brake and that Olds took flight into a farmer's field near enough to Shurgain Farms. The grey haired occupants survived, but Sylvia was never the same.
She lived the rest of her long life in a nursing home thinking she was at a horse race. I hope she was beting to win.
Sylvia Natalie Kirby is buried in the Maple United Cemetery, close to her parents and brothers. She lies next to her love, Ernie.
