Obituary for Sylvia Guerra-Cora

Sylvia Guerra-Cora was born September.6.1954. She was one of 3 children born to Felix Sr. and Dusolina Guerra. Sylvia gave life to 5 boys her eldest Rudy Christopher Acosta, David Anthony Acosta, her middle son Leajier Matthew Cora, and her twins Jerae Jason Cora and Adam Zan Cora. Sylvia loved her boys and was so proud that they grew up to be men that would put an everlasting smile on her face.
Sylvia was born and raised in New York. Throughout her life she has created everlasting friendships for over 50 years. She worked as a secretary for her entire professional career. To her sons she was the fastest typist in the world. Sylvia loved bowling, spending time with loved ones, laughing, and listening to music. She had so much love to give as she is survived by 7 grandkids who were her world. She carried herself with dignity, honor, and respect. The love, direction and advice she offered to not only her children but also those she loved would have you ready and prepared for the world and times ahead.
Sylvia was never afraid to speak her mind and/or to offer blunt advice and direction. She was profoundly touch by the utmost simplest things from a friend or family member. As she would say,” That touched my soul, Thank you”. She was a strong soul with a loving personality. Her goal was to always offer support and love for her family, and she did so with the utmost ease. She was the matriarch of the family. Loved, honored, truly missed and will never be forgotten.

My deepest condolences to the Guerra-Cora Family!
Syl and I were and will always be SISTERS! We met in high school and were inseparable. We lost contact for some years, but eventually found each other; and it was as if we had never lost contact. We had the best times!
Syl - Thank you for the laughter, tears, hugs, advice, emails, pics, and your sincerity in all our talks. I have only wonderful memories, and, I thank you for being in my life. You will always be in my heart, and I will miss you. Love you SIS!

My Dear Mother In Law, the loss we feel is great. You always showed love unconditionally to all of your sons. You devoted your life to lead them all on the right path. They have become incredible men with all of your love and guidance. Your strength and love of family live on through each of them. We will always remember you for your words of wisdom, your thoughtful ways, your smile, and laughter. I know you would want us to celebrate your life and not cry and be sad, even though the loss is significant for all. May great memories comfort all who are mourning your departure in the physical but keep our hearts light and know you are always with us. Sleep in peace, Ma Dukes; we love you.

I have lost my Friend, Sister-In-Law, and Sister, Sylvia Guerra-Cora. You will truly be missed. Thank you for the 51 years of fun, laughter and tears we shared.

You have made my life better by knowing you. Rest now with Rudy and your parents. Your boys and grandchildren will be ok because they were raised by a wonderful Mother and Grandma that taught them with a lot of love to be strong.

You have left behind a great legacy and 4 wonderful caring Sons.

Until we meet again, I love you❤️

RIP memories of you were in grammar school St. Cecilia's and high school Mabel Dean Bacon. I always remember when you took me to your house and your Mom piercing my ears and you holding my hand so I wouldn't scream. My condolences to your family. My prayers and thoughts are with them at this time.
