My fondest childhood memories are the Gulin family weekly summer visits to Sam and Freda's farm. The family has remained close for the following six decades.

Cousin Sylvia set the gold standard for a devoted mother, daughter, and wife.

Harriet,Gary,and Marc Berman Sarah, We are so sorry to hear of your mothers passing. When we moved to Smith Avenue, you and your family were the first people that we met in this neighborhood. We had such good times together. Marc and you became very good friends and spent a lot of time together. We saw your mother often, when we would take walks around the block during the pandemic. We would often talk to her about going out and about after the pandemic subsided ,however that is when I heard of her being in the hospital. Again, we all are so saddened for your loss.

So sorry to read this. I met her at the Pikesville library where she was teaching and I was a volunteer teacher to two students. I know there are many adults who are grateful to her dedication to teaching them.

Sylvia was a wonderful and loving person. I met Sylvia over 15 years ago at CCBC in Adult ESOL, where we shared teaching and Site Coordinator responsibilities at the main campus and Pikesville. Sylvia made every visiting instructor feel welcome and was there for anything we needed. She was such a kind and caring person. The students loved her, as did the teachers. She was a wealth of knowledge in the education field. She will be greatly missed by all, especially by me! Rest in peace, Sweet Sylvia!

Dearest Sylvia- Our friendship evolved from neighbors to friends and became family. There are no words to describe the loss we feel. You are with Aaron and Maurisa again and your Mom and Dad whom you were more dedicated to than words can describe. Don’t worry about 2702, it will be watched over along with your Sarah. We’ll miss you and love you always! Much love, Peggy, Alan, Brandon , Adam and Jocelyn

Sylvia was a dear and kind person. We knew each other for many years as adult education teachers. We had great talks over the years, and I respected and admired Syliva so much. She was selfless and caring, kind to every student and teacher. What a remarkable woman. It was a privielge to work with Sylvia.
Sarah, while we met only once years ago, I always heard wonderful things about you from your mom. My deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved mother. May she rest in peace.

Sylvia -- You always referred to me as your "New Auntie" and made me feel welcome to the family from the very first time I met you at your family farm over 76 years ago. You have always been my very special niece.
May you rest in peace as you and your dear Aaron reunite in Gan Eden.
With love, New Auntie Ida

Sylvia was precious. We worked together at the Community College of Baltimore County for over 10 years. Sylvia was the Adult ESOL Site Coordinator at Pikesville Middle School. There she made a lasting impression touching the lives of every instructor and hundreds of students. Her kindness and caring way will not be forgotten in the hearts of many. Mine is one.

Dear Sarah,
Stuart & I send our deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear Mom. Our family's weekly visits to you and your family at the Glen Arm farm are among my fondest childhood memories -- picking blackberries along the stream in front of your house, sidestepping the chickens in the back yard, and watching your maternal grandfather milk the cows. (Photos taken at the farm in the mid 50's attached.)
May the memory of our beloved, sweet, kind, and selfless Cousin Sylvia always be a blessing to you and all who knew her.
Love & hugs from Stuart & Joan

Sarah, we were so saddened to hear about your mother. Other than your days at BHC preschool, I would see her at the Pikesville library. She was such a kind woman, always with a smile on her face. You are in our thoughts at this very difficult time.

We are so sorry for your loss. We loved your mom. Her beautiful smile, big heart and selfless nature. Your mom loved you so much, you were her world. You were a devoted daughter always but especially during these last several months of her illness, navigating all her needs. May your lifetime of memories be a source of comfort to you now.

Oh Sarah, I’m so sorry to see this. Your mother was a strong, kind woman who made an instant positive impact on everyone she met. It was clear how much she loved you and your father. I hope you find comfort in how much she was loved my so many people. May her memory always be a blessing!
