Sylvia Clear

March 31, 1938 — September 11, 2023

Valhalla, NY

Sylvia Clear, 85, from Brooklyn, New York, sadly passed away, unexpectedly in the hospital on September 11, 2023.

She was born on March 31, 1938, to Anna Cavallaro and Joseph Perrett.  She lived, at home, with her mother and her two siblings, George and Anthony Perrett. Dedicated to helping her family, Sylvia went to work while finishing high school.

In February of 1964, she married Thomas Clear.  Sylvia, a stay at home mom, devoted her life to her children, Thomas, Kelly and her “Pretty Girl”.

Once again, Sylvia was blessed with two beautiful grandchildren, Aspen and Gavin, and two precious great granddaughters, Paisley and Hailey.  They brought much joy to her life and many smiles to her heart.

Sylvia, known by all as “Mega”, was a fearless and an independent woman, who will be remembered for her witty sense of humor and her larger than life personality.  Although we can’t see her, we know that she is peacefully walking among the blissful clouds with her loved ones by her side and “Pretty Girl” leading the way.

She made an impact on many lives and will be forever missed.
