Sylvia A. Smith

Sylvia A.E. Smith went home to be with the Lord on the evening of Wednesday, October 7, 2020. She was born in Albany, NY to the late Sidney and Ruth R. Edwards. She was a loving, meek and mild person but extremely private.

Sylvia was a graduate of Linton High School and attended the NY State University of Albany. She started her working career with the NYS Department of Motor Vehicle as a teen and from there she went on to work for Albany Savings Bank where she was a manager in the finance department. When the bank closed, she went to work for CONTEC and then to Transworld Entertainment where she eventually retired. While working for Transworld Entertainment, she and her husband opened a trucking business.

There is so much that will be missed about Sylvia, especially her famous cookouts with her specialty shrimp salad and anything else you could possibly imagine.

Sylvia was predeceased by her parents Sidney and Ruth Edwards, and her brother Sidney O. Edwards. She leaves to cherish her memory, her loving husband, Alvin G. Smith, one daughter, Gabrielle N. Smith Jenkins (Corey) of Schenectady, NY, one sister, LaVerne Edwards of Schenectady, NY, a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, in-loves, cousins and a special grandchild soon to be delivered. Her first grandchild, though not yet born, that she loved very much.

A home going celebration to which relatives and friends are invited to attend will be held on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at the Curtis Funeral Home & Cremations, Inc. 324 Hulett Street Schenectady, New York. Calling hours will be held prior to the service from 11:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. Burial will be in Park View Cemetery.
