They married in 1951 and enjoyed living in Switzerland where Marvin studied medicine at the University of Bern. Returning to the U.S. in 1958, they resided in New Britain during Marvin's internship and residency and moved to Plainville in 1963, where Sylvia raised their sons and managed Marvin's medical practice. After Marvin died in 2012, Sylvia continued to enjoy her home and the devotion of her family and numerous friends. Sylvia lived a life of love and grace. Family and friends remember Sylvia as a strong and resilient person who always focused on the positive and never had an unkind word for anyone.
