Sylvia Irene Smith Revelle Sanger, March 2nd, 1943 – April 20th, 2022.

WATERTOWN, NY — Sylvia Sanger, 79, Watertown, NY, died on April 20, 2022, at 10:46 a.m. surrounded by her children at Samaritan Summit Village.

She was a Registered Nurse and traveled the world with her family, until she suffered a stroke in 1992 while living in Oswego, NY.

While a resident of Samaritan Keep Nursing Home and Samaritan Summit Village she loved to garden, plant flowers and was an advocate for those around her. She loved to venture out of the nursing home as often as she could, even traveling out of state to visit her children and grandchildren.

Per her wishes, she did not want any services but a private family gathering in which her memory will be honored.

In memorial, please plant a flower or tree. Donations can be made to the Samaritan Summit Village, Activities Department.
