I have known Sylvia Palmer since 1967. I joined Bainbridge Chapter OES..She was the kindest person in the whole world. She always asked how our kids were doing. She was always for children and supported them. She spent many hours with Rainbow Girls and Job's Daughters. When my husband became a Mason and a Past Master she greated him with a hug and asked how the young Past Master was doing. In 1995 I was W.M. at Bainbridge Chapter and Sylvia was my Worthy Grand Matron for the State of WA. She will be missed, but she is in God's Hands still making sure we are doing ok.
We will miss her and love her until we meet again.

Mrs Sylvia Palmer holds a very special place in my heart. What a powerhouse in so many ways. A brilliant mind, coupled with confidence, warmth, love of all people and so much character. I grew up on Bainbridge Island with Sylvia and Rodney as a extension of our family. I have so many found memories of visiting their home, Eastern Star events and just recently received a surprise package with a beautiful note and the Entertainer sheet music I used to play at my Mom and Dad’s Star Matron and Patron Initiation (circa late 70s.early 80s). May you Rest In Peace and always know how many lives you’ve touched for the better. I LOVE YOU!!

Mrs. Palmer was my absolute favorite teacher ever, but she was so much more than that. She was one of my favorite people ever, one of my best role models and always a ray of sunshine. If ever I was feeling down, she always had a kind and encouraging word. She was a class act and I have such admiration for the way she lived her life. I am so glad I was able to stop and visit her a couple of months ago, but I am deeply sad that I won't be able to do so again. And no more cheery notes in her lovely loopy handwriting. I will always love her! #15

Mrs. Palmer was the best teacher I ever had. II was in her 5th grade class in 1976-77. I exchanged Christmas cards with her ever since and received one in 2017. I will miss hearing from her.

Mrs Palmer’s mix of love and rules made her a beloved teacher for all of us who were lucky enough to be her students!! She left a lasting impact and gave us wonderful childhood memories. Even though I spent my fair share of time sitting next to her desk (I liked to chat a bit too much!!) she was one of my favorites for sure and will be missed!

Sylvia made a huge impact on my life as a teacher. I did my September Experience in her classroom in 1973. I recognized then that her passion, her style, and her love of students was something I wanted to emulate. We kept in touch for over 40 years. I last saw her after she had a hip replacement. During our visit she continued to encourage me. She was one in a million and a true blessing. I love you, Mrs. Palmer.

Mrs. Palmer was my favorite teacher. I have such fond memories of our fountain pens and the care she took to make sure we all had a beautiful cursive hand. I also remember her involvement in church and the Rainbow Girls. A truly beautiful person

Mrs. Palmer was my fifth grade teacher. The top of my head will forever remember the wrath of her ink pens. In all honesty she was firm but taught us all very well. Yes not yeah, how could I ever forget. I’m very sadedened to learn of her passing. My deepest sympathy goes to her family.

Mrs. Palmer,

You were my safe place-and the reason I became a teacher. Kids are baby goats, and it’s “yes” not “yeah”. For the poems and stars and bars. For walking me over to the middle school to meet my 6th grade teacher. For the Christmas cards we exchanged every year. You made the world a better place. You inspired me and so many others. You will be greatly missed and forever remembered.

With love,

The world has lost an amazing human with a heart of gold. I have known Sylvia, aka Mrs. Palmer, since I was in 5th grade and she was my teacher.

My favorite teacher.
Ever.

Decades later when we crossed paths, her memory was still as sharp as the days when she was teaching us how to recite Robert Frost, and her hugs were still as warm and welcomed as ever. Sylvia was a role model for me and laid the foundation for how important education and continued learning would be in my life. I am so very thankful to have known her and to have been inspired by her teaching...words cannot even express how much.

I hope heaven is waiting with a "Star and a Bar" for a life of service well lived.

Sylvia was a wonderfully strong person. Her deep faith and warm spirit always brought me encouragement. She would always bring my staff and I a yummy baked treat or card. It was always a highlight of my day to see her and get a big hug and kiss on the cheek. Every time she would leave she would tell us she loved us. I hope some day to be half the woman she was. I know her Savior in heaven rejoiced the day she arrived. She will be missed.

My brothers have so eloquently spoken of Sylvia here (AKA “Sailboat” – I think that may have started with Neil). I echo their sentiments and feel the loss as another extended family member. Sylvia came to my daughter and son-in-law’s bridal/groom shower last spring. In one of the games at the party, we had names stuck to our backs and we had to try to guess our own identity. I ended up being Mark Antony and Sylvia was Cleopatra. What an honor! Just a few weeks ago, she called me to let me know that she had a tree down on her property, and knew that we gathered wood for our woodstove. She was always thinking of others, and always greeted with not just a “hello, my love,” but with a kiss on the cheek and a warm hug. We will miss your presence in our lives, but will never miss your hand in helping us understand the value of true friendship.
