Sylvia Elaine Gardner Tyler was born February 3, 1956, in Jackson, Tennessee. She was the daughter of Willis Floyd Talley and Lizzie Mae Reaves in Jackson, Tennessee.
She moved to Indianapolis, Indiana in 1972. Sylvia attended Northwest High School and graduated with the Class of 1974. After high school Sylvia attended Ivy Technical Community College, obtaining her associate degree in Childhood Development.
She accepted Christ at an early age. She later united with Light of the World Missionary Baptist Church, in 2008 under the pastoral leadership of Rev. James D. Allen, Sr. Sylvia was a servant of the Lord and held many titles within the church.
Sylvia had a transcending spirt that changed many lives with all the love and knowledge that she obtained throughout the years. She enjoyed reading her Bible, watching old Kung Fu Movies, and spending time with her grandchildren. Sylvia would help anyone, whether it be advice, a warm bed, or simply hot meal.
