Sylvia Goad Sutphin 88 of Floyd, VA. left for her journey to heaven on Saturday February 10, 2018 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 64 years George Sutphin. She was the proud mother of her two children, her daughter Vanessa Sutphin Mays of Christiansburg, Va., and son Kenneth Sutphin and wife Nacol of Roanoke, Va. Three grandchildren; Kimberly Wade, Joli Wade Huynh and husband Thai, Noah Sutphin, and great granddaughter Emma King. She was the best mother anyone could ever ask for. She was loved and will be missed immensely. A sincere thank you goes to the nurses and staff of English Meadows Nursing Home.
