She grew up and attended high school in Pasadena, graduating in 1961. She then attended the University of Houston where she recieved her BA degree in teaching in 1965.

On October 13, 1977, Sylvia married her second husband, John Frederick Hughes in Pasadena, Texas. They made their home in Pasadena until 1979 when they moved to Industry.

Sylvia taught school in Pasadena until 1980. From 1981 until her death on May 13, 2005, she was employed by the Bellville Indendent School District where she enjoyed the challenges that teaching 8th grade English brought each year. She loved animals, and was active in the Austin County 4-H Horse Project which she helped charter. One of her greatest joys was spending time with her grandchildren. She also enjoyed the time she and John spent riding their motorcycle together.
