ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our mother, Oma, sister, and friend, Sylvia Reandy. At 66 years young, she passed into Heaven, on March 7, 2021. We will always cherish her humour, love, loyalty and the memories made with her.

Born March 24, 1954, she was the daughter of Erika and Roman Maliszewski. She had 5 siblings and met her husband Jackie Reandy in the early 70s.

Sylvia is survived by her mother Erika Maliszewski, her son Robert (Nicole), daughter Annette and daughter Roxann; sisters Lola, Elona, Kathy (Dawn) and brothers Reinhardt (Melodie) and Michael (Linda); and her biggest source of joy, her 3 grandchildren, Victor, Charlie and Ben. She is preceded in death by her husband Jack.

While Sylvia had not spent as much time with Victor in the later years, she continued to love him very much and wanted nothing but happiness and success for him. Granddaughter Charlie and Sylvia had a special bond. Sylvia helped out often with babysitting and visited as much as possible. These two had many sleepovers and as of late, many video calls where they giggled like school girls and played many games together. Charlie was her "little sweetie pie". Grandson Ben was a flashback of Rob when he was little, always saying he looks just like Rob but way more crazy. Ben was her "little stinker" as she would say. 

Sylvia always had a strong work ethic and took pride in her work at an airplane parts plant, even travelling to the Southern US to train others at the new plant. Sylvia got bit by the travel bug after she, Annette and Victor, attended Rob & Nicole's wedding in Mexico. Over the next years, her travels included trips to the Philippines and more adventures in Mexico but her fondest memories and biggest laughs were made and had with those closest to her; be it while chasing little rugrats, bonding at family gatherings or spending time with friends, both in and out of work. She touched everyone she met with her love, wit, and authenticity and she will be remembered every day for it.

We would love to see your photos and read your memories and stories about Sylvia. Thank you for remembering with us and healing the loss of our loved one.

Due to pandemic, we will be doing a celebration of life in a couple of months once we can gather together safely.

When I first met Sylvia, I knew that we would get along right away..she laughed at my jokes,even if they weren't funny! She told it the way it was, no if's and's or buts. She would give me a little grin as we greeted each other, I will never forget that. "Hi Sylvia!" I would say, she would say "hey Leeeesa!" it was a funny exchange... She loved her family alot and cherished every moment spent with them! I could tell by the way she watched Charlie and Ben playing and running around. She would smile the whole time! I think that she knows how much we all love her and is sad for us because of how our hearts are breaking and how the tears won't stop flowing down our cheeks..and then the tears suddenly stop when we realize that she's ok now, so we should be ok too! Thanks Sylvia for all the laughter and love you brought into our lives! I will always be reminded of you whenever Charlie or Ben laughs because I know that you would be the one giving them a little tickle!

Wishing we would have more time together...sharing our joys of being a grand mother or sharing our connection of cancer. I'll always cherish that you reached out to get to know me, loved me as your sister and trusted Ron and I when it came time for me to shave your head. We cried, we laughed and dear sister, that wig looked awesome on you. You made me laugh and will cherish how your potty mouth became your signature when we got together for a BQ ...yes Benny is a little stinker. Your big brother said it so many times over these past months...you were loved fully!
Sylvia you've connected Ron and I with your beautiful family and now see the blessing they were to you...thank you ! May you be blessed, until we meet again sis....rest and save room for us!

Thank you for showing me, how a great friend and neighbour you were.
Thank you for taking care of me at work when I was pregnant and all the other times too.
Thank you for all the laughs at work or at home.
Thank you for all the little gifts for my kids, sorry you didn't get to meet the little one in person.
Thank you for sharing with us when your grandkids were born and visit us with Charlie so we could meet her and play with her.
You will be forever remembered with love.
Pretty sure my dad has a lots of stories of you two at work.

Sylvia was the co-worker I never thought I’d have, she showed me the ropes at work and was always there for me since the day I started. From giving me the name “baby face” to giving presents on my birthdays and even Christmas. It was never a dull time at work when she was around and even outside of it, she kept the same energy - always joked and talked fondly of her grandkids - whenever we spoke on the phone. I will cherish those memories forever. Too bad you won’t be here for my wedding but at least you’ll have the best view from up there! Thank you for everything Sylvia! You will forever be missed.

Mom has always been there for us, when we had our dog Bishop and later with our kids often getting upset that she couldn’t help when she had appointments. She would have chemo on Tuesday and want to visit a couple days later to cheer her up. She was a strong woman who never complained about what she was going through. It’s been a week and it’s not getting any easier everyday I look out the window and picture her walking across the street or coming up the stairs and kids screaming Oma!! I never thought we were that close but now that she’s gone I realize we were, talking or texting every other day if she wasn’t babysitting. Mom is greatly missed but will never be forgotten.

A Beautiful Life

Shared by Carolina Landingin on March 24, 2021
   Sylvia never left us.We see her sitting in her favourite chair at Rob’s & Nicole’s place with a big smile on her face as she watched Charlie and Ben
play around.We hear her wholehearted laughter as
we gather and sit in the backyard.We remember her each night as we say our prayers imagining her beautiful smile.Let us all find comfort in knowing that
we’ve been a part of her quiet and well-lived life.

In the Arms of the Lord

Shared by Carolina Landingin on March 11, 2021

In the arms of love
In the arms of the Lord
You’re now free of woes
Of pains, your unwanted foes.

In the arms of the Lord
Is where you belong
You now have the peace
You deserved and longed for.

We didn’t want to see you suffer
Silent prayers for you we offer
From the bottom of our hearts
We give thanks for the life you had.

With sadness we accept our loss
It is God’s will, help Him carry His cross You will join Him in paradise
He died for you but again He will rise.

Good bye Sylvia.
Until we meet again one sweet day.
With love you will be remembered ❤️
