Sylvia Kraft, 67, died unexpectedly of natural causes on Monday, March 7, 2022 at Galion Community Hospital.
She was born January 24, 1955 in Chalan Pago, Guam to the late Jose and Emperatriz (Ignacio) Aguon. She graduated from George Washington High School in Mangilao. Sylvia met a marine from New Washington named Andrew Kraft while he was stationed on the island. She returned to the mainland with Andy, and they were married September 13, 1980. She worked for the GE Lamp Plant until leaving to be more involved in her family’s activities.
Syl’s family and faith were everything to her. She cheered loudly at every event and loved becoming a grandmother. A lifelong Catholic, she worshiped at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. She and Andy liked to travel, especially to warm destinations including Hilton Head, Florida, and to visit family in California. They recently returned from the warmth of Gulf Shores Alabama. She will be remembered for her warm smile, selflessness, friendliness, and for being a great cook.
Sylvia is survived by her husband of 41 years, Andrew Kraft; son, Brian (Samantha) Kraft; daughter, Veronica (Aaron) Taylor; grandchildren, Patton, Bellamie, and Maddox Kraft and Carter, Ethan, and Grady Taylor; siblings, Josephine (Pat) Aumann, Rose (Russell) Hatfield, Tony (Sert) Aguon, and Dorothy (Sam) Cedillo; sisters-in-law, Pat Aguon, Dade Aguon, and Darlene Aguon; and mother-in-law, Marilyn Kraft.
In addition to her parents, Syl was preceded in death by brothers, Ben, John, Jesse, and Joe Aguon and her father-in-law, Lorin Kraft.
Sylvia’s family will receive friends on Monday, March 14 from 4-7 pm at Wise Funeral Service in Bucyrus where a Rosary Service will be held at 7 to conclude the evening. Her Funeral Mass will be on Tuesday at 11:00 am at Holy Trinity Church with Fr. Paul Fahrbach as Celebrant. Burial will follow in Oakwood Cemetery.
Memorial donations can be made payable to Holy Trinity Catholic Church and given through the funeral home. Memories and photos can be shared on Syl’s tribute wall.
