In loving memory of Sylvia Leona Niemczyk, a cherished member of the Junction City community, who passed away on Thursday, November 2nd, at the Good Shepherd Hospice House, following a brief battle with cancer. A memorial service will be take place Friday, November 10, 2023 at 11 am at Johnson Cremations, Funerals and Receptions with Pastor Ronnie Roberts officiating.
Sylvia came into this world on May 13th, 1959, in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, as the beloved daughter of Jimmie and Alice (Schlesner) Todd.
Sylvia's greatest joy in life was found in the warm embrace of her family and the thrill of watching her sons compete in races. She will be forever etched in our hearts for the boundless love and kindness she extended to everyone she met, always with open arms and a joyful spirit that brightened every conversation.
Sylvia is survived by her significant other, Joseph Thompson, and her cherished children, Celina (Joe) Soliz, Michael (Alyssa) Niemczyk, Heather Stewart, Steven (Alana) Thompson, Nicholas (Skye) Thompson, and Jacob Thompson. She is also survived by her 19 adoring grandchildren, with one on the way, as well as 5 great-grandchildren. Sylvia's sisters, Sheree (Martin) Hemmingway of Junction City, Kansas, and Sheila Miller of Abilene, Kansas, hold her dear in their hearts.
Sylvia is now reunited with her grandson, Jeremiah Thompson, and her brother, Malcom Todd of Junction City, in eternal peace. She joins her parents, Jimmie and Alice, and her grandparents, Paul and Ida Schlesner of Herington, Kansas, and James and Carrie Todd of Cullman, Alabama, in the heavenly embrace.
As we remember Sylvia's life and say our farewells to her physical presence, we hold onto the memories of her warm smile, her kind heart, and the love she shared with all. Her legacy lives on in our hearts, a testament to the enduring power of love and the profound impact one person can have on the lives of many.
