She was born in San Antonio, Texas to Manuel R. and Ruth T.

Survivors include her son, Vincent Ledesma and wife, Cynthia, granddaughters, Lilianna and Cecilia; mother, Ruth T. Ferrer; sister, Cindy Dean (Glenn); brothers, Hector Ferrer (Brenda) and Rene Ferrer; nieces, Carina Ferrer and Joanna Ledesma (Oscar Montemayor); nephews, Christopher Dean (Elaine) and Alexias Ferrer; mother-in-law, Julia Ledesma, and brother-in-law, Javier Ledesma (Juanita); great nieces and nephews, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.

Sylvia was preceded in death by her one true love, Joe Ledesma, her father, Manuel Ferrer and father-in-law, Juan Ledesma.  

The majority of Sylvia’s work career was spent at Texas State University where she held Administrative Assistant positions in the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Multicultural Student Affairs, and Military Science (Army ROTC).  For a brief time, she worked with the San Marcos CISD Superintendent’s Office and earlier in her career she worked at Klipple’s Office Supply. 

Sylvia loved Panda Bears, the Fall season, watching Disney classics, reading the Twilight and Harry Potter series of books, and she held a blue belt in Taekwondo, a Korean form of martial arts.  Her greatest joy was being a grandmother to Lily and Cece.

Sylvia will be remembered for her upbeat personality, positive attitude, her kindness, and never-ending smile.
