Sylvia passed away peacefully on the morning of February 22, in her own home after fighting a fierce battle with cancer. Born January 16, 1939 to Ernest and Lois Ziegler, she lived her whole life in the Snoqualmie Valley.

She worked at the Boeing Co. for 35 years. After retirement, she spent her time enjoying her family and just being outdoors. She enjoyed gardening and baking and she especially loved spending time at Thousand Trails in Leavenworth.

She was preceded in death by her sister Norma Cantrell, from Idaho. Those left behind are brother Ernest Ziegler from Leavenworth, Wa., Barb Reedy of Arizona, Tracy and Gary Crawford from Carnation, Wa, Connie Gerde and Bob from Carnation, Wa., 7 grandchildren and 7 great-grand children. She was so very loved by many and even though she will be greatly missed, we know we will meet again.
