Sylvia Joan Halsey departed this world, June 6, 2019, in Attleboro, Massachusetts. She left behind to grieve her loss and Heaven's gain one Daughter and Son-In-Law, Susan Halsey Belton Singer (her best friend) and Keith Singer of Attleboro, Massachusetts, formerly of Denton and Bridgetown, MD. She was a Devoted grandmother to granddaughter and son-in-law, Cherisse and Scott Judy of Greensboro, MD, her Beloved grandson Max Brian Belton of Lexington Park, MD and grandson's Neil Belton and Ian Belton of Norfolk, VA. She also leaves behind many grieving nieces, nephews and friends. She was the Devoted daughter of Blanche Jane and Ogilvie Halsey of Deep Creek Lake Maryland and sister to Richard, Kenneth, Edwin, Roger and John Halsey.
Sylvia was originally from the beautiful mountains of Western Maryland where her family had a long running business at Deep Creek Lake. She'd been a model for a time and was a secretary most of her life; also working for the U.S. House of Representatives Banking Committee on Capitol Hill and with the Social Security Administration. She resided in Bridgetown, Maryland for a time where her daughter resided. She there served as a Scout volunteer and Secretary of the Ridgely Lion's Club. She spent most of her retirement years in St. Augustine and Daytona Beach, Florida. In 2016 she relocated to Attleboro, Massachusetts to be near her Daughter and Son-in-Law where they spent a few years enjoying and eating their way through New England.
She had a passion for the more elegant things in life and was a style icon. Her gentle quiet strength, kind and delicate ways set her apart. She was a perfectionist and her surroundings and dress reflected this. Her love of animals was paramount; especially for dogs. She was a dedicated, thoughtful and helpful friend always there when you needed her. Her tasks are now complete, and she is at rest. If you knew her, you knew she was: ‘One of the Helpers'.
A celebration of Sylvia's life will be held at Lifecare Center of Attleboro, TBA and at a small graveside service in Maryland later in the summer with Family and Friends.
In lieu of Flowers, Sylvia would have wanted you to be extra kind to each other and remember her and her grieving family in your prayers.
