Sylvia L. Kauffman 83, 1947 Queen of Candles
Sylvia L. Kauffman, 83, of Lititz, passed away peacefully at her residence and went to be with her Lord on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013.
Born in Lancaster, she was the daughter of the late David and Stella Royer Roth. She was married to the late Robert "Ike" L. Kauffman, a popular Record Express columnist who died in 1993.
Sylvia is survived by two daughters: Kim (Donald) Stoner and Fran (Jeffrey) Roberts; two sons: Stan (Barb) Kauffman and Steve Kauffman; four grandchildren: Ryan (Jess) Stoner, Jason Stoner, Megan (Jason) Jones, and Michael (Juli) Kauffman; a brother: Bob (Patti) Roth; and two sisters-in-law: Liz (the late Charles) Roth and Betty (the late Melvin) Roth. She was preceded in death by four brothers: Eugene, Herb, Jim and Raymond; and three sisters: Kathleen Gulden, Blanch Tangert and Floss Flosser.
"Mom was a sweet and loving presence in the lives of her family and friends," her children wrote. "She was a super cook, great mother and an avid Eagles fan. A beautiful woman with a four-fingered whistle that could split your eardrums. She never met a steak she didn’t like and loved her Rosey burgers. She was unselfish and always had a kind word and smile for everyone. She was especially grateful for the company and love of her darlin’ ‘adopted’ grandsons, Chris and Alex. She will be dearly missed."
Sylvia was a graduate of the former Lititz High School and was Queen of Candles during the Lititz Fourth of July celebration in 1947. She was a member of the Lititz Moravian Church.
Sylvia’s life celebration memorial service was held at Lititz Moravian Church Jan. 29 with Rev. Mark V. Breland, Sr. officiating. Interment was in the Moravian Cemetery. The family received friends following the memorial service in the church social hall.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Hospice and Community Care, P.O. Box 4125, Lancaster, PA 17604-4125.
Spacht Funeral Home, Lititz, has been entrusted with the arrangements. To share your fondest memories of Sylvia, visit lifecelebration.com.
