Sylvia Lutz Buyce

Sylvia Lutz Buyce died peacefully on September 29, 2007, escaping a body that could no longer nurture her beautiful, boundless soul. Her beloved son, Brian, will joyfully welcome his Mom into heaven. Sylvia had a warm, vivacious personality and a determined spirit that captivated people, especially her husband of 46 years, Jack. Jack and Sylvia met on a snowy slope of a mountain in the Catskills and went on to forge an unbreakable life-long bond. Like Jack, Sylvia was never one to wonder what the world had to give her, but rather, she seized life as an opportunity to help and enjoy others. She served as ski patrolman, hostess, and nurse’s aide in her hometown of Roxbury and then moved to the Adirondack village of Northville where she cared for others as a developmental disabilities aide and a nurse. She loved helping people and had a warm welcoming way about her that set others immediately at ease. She was a mother to six foster children and an unofficial foster mother to countless others. Time after time, she took people in need into her heart and home when they were struggling to make sense of this world. Although she never promised the answers to all the puzzling sorrows life brings, she had a heart of gold, boundless hope, and — best of all — a great sense of humor. Her husband, children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews will treasure the memories of all the laughter and fun they had with their wife, their mom, their Nonee, or their aunt — for she filled all these roles with youthful enthusiasm and love. Her brother, Phil, and his family will treasure the memories they shared. Her children, Brad, Stephanie, Andrew, and Tracey, as well as her grandchildren, Zakary, Nikalus, Brittany, Dustin and Keith will miss her, and forever remember the legacy of laughter and giving that exemplified her long happy life. We are sorrowful, yet at the same time, those who knew of her recent suffering, find solace in knowing she is at peace. She longed for and welcomed that peace; the day before her sudden unexpected death, she emphatically said again and again that she would be resting in heaven the next day. And so she was. God has called home the generous joyful spirit of Sylvia Lutz Buyce.
