Sylvia was born on June 4, 1935 in Graniteville, SC. She was the daughter of the late Jessie T.
Melton and Jewell Thomas Melton. She was a lifelong resident of Graniteville and a Customer
Service Manager for Graniteville Company for over 40 years. Sylvia and her husband, Ronnie
Bryant recently celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary. They began their journey together on
August 13, 1954 at Calvary Baptist Church in Graniteville.
Sylvia was a charter member of Calvary Baptist Church and served there for many years.
Currently, she was a member of Graniteville First Baptist Church, where she was a Sunday
School teacher and choir member. More important to her than where or how she served was
her relationship with Jesus Christ. She was always more than happy to share her faith and
what it meant to her. Her walk with Jesus Christ was the cornerstone of who she was.
Sylvia loved her family and was deeply loved in return. Her infectious smile drew people in, and
her personality and warmth made you want to stay in her world for awhile. Once you were
there, Sylvia had a way of making sure you knew you were loved and truly mattered to her. The
impact she had on others will be felt for years to come.
It is with deep and profound sadness that we must say goodbye to this wonderful woman for
now, but we will see her again. Sylvia is survived by her husband Ronnie, daughter Tonia B.
Thompson(Bill), son Ron Bryant(Samantha), grandchildren Cory Bryant(Mary Elizabeth),
Julianne Bryant, Ryan Garbutt, and Brianne Garbutt.
