Sylvia Diane Hardy was born March 28, 1958 in Vienna Georgia to Bernice and James Hardy. At a young age Sylvia moved to Orlando, FL where she grew up alongside her 11 siblings; Gwendolyn Hunter (Eddie), Annie Johnson, Mattie “Pete” Jones (Deceased), Raymond Jones(Deceased), Johnny Jones, Timothy Hardy (Karensa), Patricia Hardy (Deceased), Benita Carter, Vanessa Simpson, Kelvin Hardy and Treva “Cricket” Hardy (Deceased).

Mother Sylvia was a faithful member of New Covenant Baptist church, and later joined her family’s church Bethel Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Rollie Murray Jr. Sylvia had a spirit of love for everyone she came across. Her love and laughter was contagious, and could be genuinely felt. Mother Sylvia was a walking example of how GOD wants us to treat others. She was far from disapproving, and saw the good in everyone.

Diane was the epitome of the word strength. Every obstacle she encountered, she fought hard to overcome. Her strong-minded and already robust personality was heightened even more when it came to giving GOD praise and honor. Not only for the blessing of her life, but for the lives of others. She made it her business to pray not only for herself but for family, friends, and even the strangers on a street corner. Diane knew the power of prayer.

On April 17, 2018, GOD called Sylvia to her eternal home in glory where she can continue to praise and glorify his name. Although she will be missed dearly, it is comforting to know that she will no longer endure the troubles that life presented her with daily.
