Sylvia Marie Flood, the child shown here,
has many credits of accomplishments. They are easily available since she
was a licensed registered nurse. She worked in the field of psychiatry.
She was over a state institution for the mentally impaired who were aged.
She warranted the deepest respect and admiration. This lady was a nurse by
birth and through steady hard work and study. Sylvia never stopped and
became satisfied to rest on her laurels, but was always pushing to reach
to a higher goal. She was a teacher, although she admitted this was not
her favorite part of her profession. And, she was a professional, in every
sense of the word.
Sylvia was John Wesley Flood's eldest
sister, Rodney Flood's aunt. She had no children of her own.
