Sylvia Grace Muzzio died peacefully at her home in Gilroy on November 9, 2017. Born to Dante and Concetta Magnani in New York on October 11, 1936, she married David Manuel Muzzio on March 25, 1961 in Los Gatos. They raised their family in San Jose and in retirement, split their time between Gilroy and Mt Shasta.

Sylvia is survived by her husband David; five children, Damian (Julie) Muzzio, Jeanine (Scott) Bura; Lia (Jon) Peterson; Lisa Muzzio (Stephen Bryant) and Marla (Sherman) Leland; 14 grandchildren; a sister, Jeanette (David) Roberts and a far-reaching list of family and friends.

Sylvia enjoyed life, family, reading, quilting, and learning new things. She encouraged "try" because she never believed in “can’t”. She had a way of making everyone feel special and could light up a room with her smile. No matter the adversity, she always exhibited strength, courage and perseverance. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Please join us Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 1-5 pm at 2605 Roop Rd. in Gilroy to celebrate her life.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity.
