Sylvia E. Marsh, a longtime Meeker resident, died Aug. 15, 2009.
She was 95.
Sylvia was born June 26, 1914, to the late Benjamin and Elizabeth Myers in Jefferson, Mo.
A funeral will be held at 10 a.m. today at the Cochran Funeral Home in Meeker with Pastor Paul Lehman officiating.
Sylvia worked for the Rio Blanco County for more than 30 years before retiring in 1990. She was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary.
Sylvia was married to Frank Marsh on Jan. 12, 1953, in Craig.
Her family wrote that she will be missed by everyone who has ever had the privilege of meeting her.
"All of the stories you always told about the good old days, of riding a wagon for a day to go to a dance, or about the outlaws coming through Browns Park and staying with you and your family," her family wrote. "You were always up for a trip, even if you slept the whole way, it did not matter where to, as long as the words, 'I think we may be lost,' never came up."
The family wants to thank Connie, Eashley, Amanda Ross, Hope, and family for all that they have done to help and the love they all showed Sylvia. "Thanks to everyone for all the help with Grandma," the family wrote. "She will be missed but forever remembered in our hearts."
