Mrs. Palmer...

My fifth grade teacher in 1984. What a wonderful and spunky woman. You were my most memorable teacher and I will always remember you fondly. Thank you for that great year of elementary school! Rest in peace...

For my brother and I, "Aunt" Sylvia and her family were always near in spirit and treasured on visits, from our very earliest memories of growing up in the 1950s. A dear friend of our mother's, Sylvia was always a thoughtful, caring and uplifting presence. She was a source of inspiration about the wideness of the world, and about the importance of kindness and a positive outlook. Our circles are diminished with Sylvia's departure; she was among the greatest of her and our parents' generation. She set an example with her life that I will forever remember and deeply respect.

Sincere condolences to Stevie and Patricia and their families.

I am Robin Stringer, I owned the Poulsbo Dairy Queen. Sylvia came in every year and bought hundreds of dollars of DQ gift cards. I enjoyed talking with her and having small talk about life. She’s a beautiful lady and will be missed.

The front pool at the Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center is going to be a lonelier place without Sylvia's hugs and without her conversation while walking laps. It is a privilege to have known her.

I am at a loss for words and heartbroken. Mrs. Palmer was my 5th grade teacher. As I became an adult I thought of her as my second mom. She was always there for me with wise words and support. When I lost my mom she attended her funeral. She held me and cried with me. She always asked about my children (not kids!). She would send me cards and books. We would visit for an hour and I hung on her every word. I will miss you Mrs. Palmer. I love you and thank you for all your kindness and your friendship. May you rest in God's Peace. I hope you know how much your're loved.

I was Blessed in knowing Sylvia for over 20 years. I was her Hair stylist for about five of those years. Sylvia came in every week looking forward to not just getting beautiful, but looked forward to joining in a song with the other ladies that were in the Salon. Great memories! Sylvia always had a cheerful greeting & farewell while being escorted by her sweet German Shepard,” Sage”.
Sage never left her side while getting her hair fixed.
A very dignified, determined & knowledgeable Lady. Loaded with lots of wisdom & Love.
I will always & forever be grateful to have known Ms.Sylvia.
Till we meet again Lovely Lady! ❤️✝️

Sylvia Palmer was a special person. Once she"took to you" she was a constant, loving and understanding genuine friend. A gem. May she rest in peace.

To our special Miss Wilvia, such a beautiful lady full of grace and blessings for all. I never heard her speak an unkind word to or about another person. What a wonderful example for all of us.

A great example of our Eastern Star principles and lessons. I will always remember and respect your ability to "just keep going" when you know you have forgotten a word or two of your Rainbow or Eastern Star part.

You will be sorely missed but always remembered with love and respect.

Mrs.Palmer was my favorite teacher. She was also the strictest teacher I ever had, but she always did so in such a loving and positive way.I've enjoyed exchanging yearly Christmas cards with her and seeing the great pictures of her and her family. She was truly a beautiful woman inside and out. She was such a great example to me. She will be greatly missed. It was a blessing to know and love her.

I languished in finding all the right words... then the form went blank. So let me offer a piece of one of her favorite poems instead:

"... And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of god."

High Flight John G Magee Jr.

I know she's there, and I hope I was able to convey in these 52 years of friendship how much I loved her.

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
