      SYDNOR, Mrs. Margaret Wylie, age 99, died on Friday, December 4, 2015. She was the widow of James Rawlings Sydnor. At the time of his death in 1999, they had been married 63 years. Margaret Sydnor is survived by three daughters, Evelyn Sackett Kubas, Wilmina Kiskaddon Sydnor and Susan Barksdale Wagner; two sons-in-law, David Raymond Kubas and Harold Julius Wagner II; five grandchildren and their spouses, Benjamin and Shannon Kubas, Justin and Amanda Kubas, Harold Julius Wagner III, Esther and John Yuan, and Johanna and Adam Bachman; and 15 great-grandchildren. Mrs. Sydnor graduated from the Westminster Choir College in Princeton, N.J. and received a master's degree from the Presbyterian School of Christian Education. She taught in the Richmond Public Schools in the inner city and was past president of the local Association for Early Childhood Education International. Mrs. Sydnor was an Elder in the Ginter Park Presbyterian Church, and sang in choirs for 70 years. She was a member of the Council of the United Church Women and served on the Board of Mission Court of the Presbyterian Church. After retiring from teaching, Margaret packed and delivered Meals on Wheels each week for 20 years. She also served as a volunteer at Richmond Memorial Hospital for 19 years. When she and her husband moved to Westminster Canterbury, she did volunteer work as Resident Floor Representative for two terms and worked with the chaplaincy. She was loved by many and will be deeply missed by her family and friends. The family would like to express their appreciation to the staff at Westminster Canterbury Health Care and Pavilion for their loving care of Mrs. Sydnor, and to Bon Secours Hospice.
