Sylvia Ann Kvapil Rohmfeld, age 79, passed in peace on Sunday, February 3rd, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. A gentle and kind woman who spent her life in service to others, whether it was taking care of her husband, children, grandchildren, mother, father, friends or strangers, Sylvia could be found with a smile on her face and a kind word to be offered. The world was a better place with her in it and anyone who crossed her path was fortunate to have been able to share the moments with her.
She grew up on a farm in Rowena Texas in the 1940’s and 50’s as the daughter of hard working, proud 1st generation Czechoslovakian-Americans. Married the love of her life, Fred (Bugs) Rohmfeld, in 1958, raised a daughter and son along with two grandchildren. Working and helping others throughout her life, Sylvia spent the last 10 years volunteering and making new friends at Casa Helotes.
