Sylvia was a second grandmother to the many children she babysat in the Callaway community over the past 45 years.

Her church family were always close to her heart. She enjoyed her annual trips with her dear sisters Janice Conner, Patricia Harris, and Margaret Harris and would always return filled with happiness and fun new memories. She was proceeded in death by her husband Jay Hugh Underwood and her siblings Joyce Ann Dalton, Larry Allen Moran and Dennis Martin Moran.
