Peacefully, at Seaforth Long Term Care Home, Sylvia Freda Blanche Brommer (née Wharton) passed away on Sunday, May 5, 2019. In her 78 years among us, Sylvia’s life was an example of devotion to faith and a hard work ethic that accompanies life on the farm. She always fed her family with good home cooking. More importantly, Sylvia nurtured her family with an abundant love. In later years, a good day for Sylvia included a trip to Tim Hortons in the company of family.
Sylvia will be lovingly remembered by her children Sherry Barth and Trevor of Kirkton, Pete Gatze Brommer and Sandra of Clinton, Perry Alfred Brommer of Bayfield and David Brommer of St. Marys. Memories of a much loved grandma remain with grandchildren April Tang (Jay), Nicholas Pete Brommer, Heather Brommer, Justin Brommer, Rachel Brommer, Jessica Lynn Brommer, Nicole Victoria Brommer, Emma Christine Brommer and great grandson Sawyer Brommer. Sylvia will be fondly remembered by siblings and siblings-in-law Jack and Agnes Wharton, James Wharton, Dave Wharton, Tom and Ricky Shearer, Dowie and Jenny Wilts and her nieces and nephews.
In faith, we trust that Sylvia’s spirit is now reunited in eternal life with her husband Pete (2016), grandson Jonathan Barth and sister-in-law Dorothy Wharton.
Visitation will be held at McGlynn Family Funeral Home (519-527-1390), 87 Goderich Street West, Seaforth on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 from 7-9 p.m. and again on Thursday, May 9, 2019 from 12-1 p.m. followed immediately by a funeral service to honour Sylvia’s life. A reception will follow at Seaforth Legion Branch 156, 123 Main Street South, Seaforth. Interment will take place in Harpurhey Cemetery at a later date.
As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Canadian Mental Health Association would be appreciated by the family. The Brommer family extends their heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Seaforth Long Term Care Home and the staff of Seaforth Community Hospital for the kind and compassionate care extended to Sylvia over the years.
