Obituary for Sylvia Burch (Bennett)

Sylvia was born in Bristol England, to parents Blanche and Albert and sister to Pauline. She came to Canada in 1967 after graduating from college in England. She found work at the College Bibliocentre: Ontario Government where she stayed for 10 years, initially in Hamilton and later in Toronto. It was in Toronto that Sylvia met Frank, and they were married in July 1976. She became a Canadian citizen in 1980. After their marriage Sylvia and Frank moved to Deseronto, Ontario where they purchased Mohawk Bay trailer park. This they regenerated and ran successfully for 23 years, meeting and hosting a lot of wonderful staff and campers. Since their retirement in 2000 they continued to live in the local community. In her earlier years in Toronto Sylvia was an avid field hockey player and formed lifelong friendships within the community of players. After retirement golf became her sport passion. She was a staunch member of Newburgh United church, a choir member and long time secretary for the Newburgh/Centreville pastoral charge. Sylvia was a great manager and organiser and quietly working in the background used these skills to enable efficient operation of any enterprise she was involved in, be it business or church or home. For example, over the last 12 years with Sylvia's assistance, well over 14,000 young trees were sold to be planted in our area through Newburgh United Church. Sylvia conquered breast cancer in 1998, only to find out that in February 2016 colon cancer had invaded her body. Even with the thorough and caring treatment administered by a wonderful, dedicated and lively staff at Belleville General under supervision of Dr. Kankesan, it could not be cured. Wonderful care was continued until the end by local community health services. Family and friends are invited to come together to remember Sylvia at Newburgh United Church, located at 339 Academy Street, Newburgh, Ontario on Saturday October 14th at 11 A.M. There, Sylvia will be placed in God’s hands with the blessings of neighbours and friends in the town of Napanee and from many places around the world.
