WARREN — Sylvia Elizabeth DeRose Bednar, 86, passed away Thursday morning, Nov. 3, 2022, at Trumbull Regional Medical Center in Warren.

Sylvia was born Dec. 10, 1935, in Monessen, Pa., a daughter of Ottavio and Emilia Gatto DeRose.

Sylvia graduated from Monessen High School in 1953 and went on to graduate from business school.

On May 4, 1956, Sylvia married the love of her life, Andrew R. Bednar Sr. The two then moved to Warren, where they raised their family.

Sylvia had an extensive work career, first in the administrative department for Trumbull Memorial Hospital, then, after the passing of her husband, for Howland Local Schools. She went on to work in medical records at Warren General Hospital before managing the member services department at HMP / TMMG. Sylvia was the office manager for Pediatric Care Associates and eventually retired in that same position from Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics in 2018.

Besides her work, Sylvia enjoyed volunteering. She was a Brownie leader, PTO mom, Cub Scout leader and a former president of the Jay Cee-ettes. She was first a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Warren, then a member of St. Robert Catholic Church in Cortland.

She also enjoyed crocheting, needlework, word searches and watching westerns. Most of all, her greatest joy came from her family. She was proud to be a homemaker; she loved watching her grandchildren play sports and play in the band; she looked forward to cooking holiday meals for her family, and she was grateful for family traditions, such as painting Easter eggs. Sylvia will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

Sylvia will always be remembered by her children, daughter, Marisa (Fred) Burazer of Cortland, and their children, Fred A. (Megan) Burazer and Rachel (Michael) Blanchard; son, Andrew R. Jr. (Catherine) Bednar of Warren, and their children, Michael A. (Hannah) Bednar and Emily R. (Nathan) Hanson; and son, Mark A. (Lorie) Bednar of Kent, and their children, Sophia, Olivia and Theo Bednar. Sylvia is also survived by three great-grandchildren, Abigail Burazer, Charlotte Burazer and Grant Bednar; a brother, Armand DeRose; and sisters-in-law, Joan DeRose, Martha (Michael) DeFrancesco and Sharon Bednar.

Besides her parents, Sylvia was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Andrew R. Bednar Sr., on Oct. 10, 1980; siblings, Pearl (Lester) Hunter, Pauline DeRose, Devina (Pete) Bitonti and Octavius DeRose Jr.; sister-in-law, Dorothy (John) Valosen; and brother-in-law, Larry Bednar.

Family and friends may pay their respects to Sylvia from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, 2022, at the Peter Rossi and Son Memorial Chapel, 1884 North Road NE, Warren, OH 44483, and again from 9 to 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 7, 2022, at the funeral home.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 7, 2022, at St. Robert Catholic Church, 4659 OH-46, Cortland, OH 44410, with the Rev. Carl Kish presiding. Burial will take place in All Souls Cemetery in Bazetta.
