She was born on December 28, 1926, to the late William and Emma (Radtke) Siebert. Mom was baptized and confirmed in her faith at Zion Lutheran, Wayside. She was a child of God. On September 23, 1944, she married Alfred Eichhorst, they were blest with 9 children. He preceded her to Heaven on February 13, 2000. Mom was always putting others first. Everyone was always welcome at her home which was filled with unconditional love. It was always a gathering place for family and friends. Sylvia’s faith was strong, and she instilled that in her children. Mom loved to hold little ones and sing “Jesus Loves Me” to them. They were her Sweetie pies! Her family meant everything to her.
