To the family of Sybil Friedman. I only knew Sybil from the bridge tables. But, what a lady, in every sense of the word. She would always greet me with her beautiful smile, always ask about me, how I was, “So nice to see you” . I will miss her, as I’m sure you all will, you have all your wonderful memories. I just can’t believe she was almost 100. She was today’s 60. To know her was to love her.

What a lovely legacy she leaves for all of you. And what a long and full life she lived. We wish you very precious memories of your matriarch, and wish you good health and long life.

Lois Baron - 5 days ago

I am very sad! The world has lost one of the sweetest and kindest women. Sybil always greeted me with a smile and question as to what I was up to. She was one of that group of women I called ”my golfing ladies” at Elm Ridge. When she hung up her clubs, Sybil still drove her “girls” out to play bridge even during a waning period of time for duplicate at the Club. She was the only one who still drove. I will miss seeing her, but feel good knowing that she’ll meet up with her buddy Sybil Fels, and they will play a mean game of duplicate in heaven! My heart goes out to the family. Rest in peace sweet lady! Lois Baron
