Obituary

Sylvia S. Hendricks was born December 27, 1937 in Port of

Spain, Trinidad to Albertha Samuel. She grew up with her brother

Leon. She went to school to become a nurse and studied at Bethnel

Green School of Nursing in London, England (UK).

In 1962, she met Leslie A. Hendricks, Sr. and they were married

March 31, 1962 in London, England.

She accepted Christ as her Savior. She and Leslie were members

of Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Warrensville Heights, Ohio

for 50 years. She sang in the choir and belonged to the Shepherd’s

Ministry.

She enjoyed gardening exotic flowers and loved to crochet and

sew. She also loved to travel to many destinations around the world,

including the Caribbean and Mediterranean (cruises including Panama

Canal and many more), Europe, the Far East: Hong Kong, China,

Thailand, and around the United States and Canada, traveling by

plane, train, and automobile. Sylvia not only had a gift of gardening,

she loved to cook her West Indian cuisine for her family. She always

had a basket full of mangoes and a pocket with Tamarind balls.

During the holidays, she passed down the tradition of making

Rum cakes and baking homemade bread and Trinidad Sweet Bread

which she always gave to our family, especially her brother.

Sylvia leaves to mourn her loving and devoted husband Leslie

A. Hendricks, Sr. who were married for 60 years. She also leaves to

mourn her children, Keith, Leslie Jr., and Lisa; brother, Leon Samuel;

grandchildren: Claire, Kylie, Lia, Le’Nia, Leslie III, Li’Ana, Michael,

and Angel; and 14 great-grandchildren.
