Sylvia Maria Borghelli Smith was born June 10, 1937 and left her earthly body on May 15, 2020. A 30 year resident of Oakley, California, she excelled at every job she took on, from banking to working with special education students, her greatest joy was being a wife and mother. Sylvia was an active member of St Anthony’s Church in Oakley. She also was a member of the Oakley Incorporated community from 1994-1998.
Sylvia is survived by her devoted husband, Dale Smith, her two children, Gregg Smith and Lisa Macumber, her granddaughters Samantha and Evangeline Smith and Genevieve Macumber. She is also survived by her sister Joan Grazzini.
We are heartbroken with the loss of a beautiful wife, loving mother and doting grandmother. Sadly, due to the county restrictions, we are unable to truly celebrate the amazing life of Sylvia Smith. A small gathering of immediate family will be held on Friday, May 29th at Holy Sepulcher cemetery in Hayward, CA, at one o'clock in the afternoon. We ask that our family and friends observe a moment of silence in honor of such a special woman.
Our family knows that in a different situation than current circumstances we would be surrounded by our loved ones. Your thoughts and prayers are felt and we are grateful for your love and support at this time.
