Ann Sylvia (Hall) Haberman
Sylvia Haberman, 91, a longtime resident of Tilton, died on Thursday, June 27, 2019 at Mountain Ridge Genesis Center in Franklin, peacefully and exactly as she had planned, with her family, best friend Ginnie, and her little dog Roxie by her side. Sylvia was born in San Diego, CA on July 28, 1927, the daughter of John and Frances (Eaton) Hall. She was employed with the Department of Health and Human Services with the State of New Hampshire as a child advocate, having touched and changed (and probably saved) the lives of countless children that she transported over many years. Sylvia was an active member of the Tilton-Northfield United Methodist Church in Tilton since 1985, where she held a leadership role to the day she died. Sylvia’s favorite things included sitting by the ocean (as she had so many times on the beautiful rocks of La Jolla California, where she grew up), flower gardening and arranging (an art that she passed on to many), and taking care of – and loving - everyone who crossed her path. She was predeceased by her husband Robert Wendell Haberman, who died on February 12, 2018, with whom she would have celebrated their 65th anniversary on the day she died (as she had planned). She was also predeceased by her twin brothers, John and Harry Hall. Her family includes:
Sue and her husband Robert Vanderbeck of Nashua
And their children Quinn and Kim
Wendy Haberman of Saugerties, NY, and Evan Johnson of Teaneck NJ
And their children Jared and Ethan
Her step son:
Robert Haberman Jr. of San Mateo, CA
Her nephew Marshall Hall (and wife Ginnie) of Sherman Oaks, CA.
Many nieces and nephews who predeceased her.
And countless beloved and supportive friends who enriched her life.
A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at 11:15 AM at the Tilton-Northfield United Methodist Church in Tilton. A luncheon and gathering will be held following the service downstairs at the church.
Burial in the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen with her husband on Friday, July 26, 2019 at 11:00 AM.
