Sybil R. Young (Fine)

July 28, 1932 – June 15, 2024

Sybil is survived by her children, Alan Fine (Vickie), Susan Fine, Iris Sheppard (Andy) and daughter-in-law, Dany Schaper-Fine; grandchildren, Jason (Paige) and Alexander (Catie) Rheinwald, Jennifer and Benjamin (Lauren) Sheppard, Cecily and Isabella Fine; great grandchildren Oliver and Ari Rheinwald; and many wonderful friends, including forever friends Marcia Rosenfeld and Mary Anne Dewhirst.

Block, brother-in-law Gerald R. Fine, and mother-in-law, Celia Fine Gold.

Sybil was born in Boston, MA and grew up in Roxbury, MA. She and Sandy married in 1951 and moved to Rochester, NY in 1965. After Sandy passed away in 1968, Sybil took a “seasonal job” at B. Forman Co., a career that would last 26 years and bless her with lifelong friends.

Sybil continued sharing her talents at small, boutique shops in the village of Pittsford as well as volunteering (for over 20 years) at Temple B’rith Kodesh until early 2018, well into her 80’s.

A great lover of chocolate, books, a good game of Rummikub and penny slots, above all Sybil was dedicated to and loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She delighted in their accomplishments and supported them in all aspects of their lives.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the caregivers in Cottage 3, 3rd floor, for all they did to support Sybil in the time she was there. Also, a special thank you to her hospice companion, Vivienne, and to Jen and Ellen from Rochester Regional Care. We are so appreciative of the respect and care you showed Sybil.

We will miss her every day.
