Sylvia Ann Mayberry, of Perryville, entered into eternal rest on July 11, 2021, at the Lutheran Home in Cape Girardeau at the age of 83. She was born on Aug. 24, 1937, in Sedgewickville to the late Harry and Audell (Bloom) Richey. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Vearl Mayberry and her sisters, Mary Lou Smith, Wanda Pirtle, Janice Russell, and Alma Griffith.
Sylvia is survived by her children, Kevin C. Mayberry of Jackson, Sergeant Major (Ret. Army) Keith A.

Sylvia was raised in Coffman. She married Vearl Mayberry on Sept. 18, 1958. She worked for General Electric in addition to being a homemaker and mother.
As the family moved from state to state and country to country, she was the glue that held the family together.
