Fairfield-Sylvia Mary Labbé, 96, passed on to her eternal rest early on July 24, 2018. \r\n\r\nBorn in Winooski, Vermont on March 9, 1922, she was the eldest daughter of Odila Marie Pouliot and John Baptist Hebert. After extensive wartime correspondence she married the love of her life, Clement Joseph Labbé. They made a home only steps away from the family farm on Savage Street in Fairfield.\r\n\r\nSylvia was a small woman with a big spirit, maintaining a comfortable home for Clem and children, Priscilla and Paul. She traveled by foot and bus to take care of family business around town, baked daily and crocheted. She took great joy in riding her bicycle and dancing to her heart's content. And she always savored a good box of chocolates.\r\n\r\nSylvia was dedicated to family with an unwavering love--a cherished daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. \r\n\r\nShe will join Clem in heaven along with her parents; brothers, René and Donald; and sisters, Ann and Yvette. \r\n\r\nSylvia is survived by her daughter Priscilla Giroux; son Paul and his wife Gretchen; sisters Frances Plante and Rita Hebert. Sylvia's gentle spirit lives on in her grandchildren, David, Sarah and Julia, and in her five great grandchildren, Lily, Sophie, Amanda, Madden and Summer. \r\n\r\nShe will be missed by Fairfield neighbors, including her trusted friend Tim Brown, as well as her fellow residents at Lakewood Continuing Care.\r\n\r\nThank you, Sylvia, for touching our lives, warming our hearts, and being there for us. Tu seras toujours avec nous!\r\n\r\nThose who wish to honor our beloved Sylvia could consider a donation to the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament (Waterville, Maine).\r\n\r\nVisiting hours will be held on Monday, July 30th from 3-6 p.m. at Lawry Brothers Funeral Home, 107 Main St., Fairfield. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, July 31st at 10 a.m. at Notre Dame Catholic Church, 116 Silver St., Waterville. Burial will follow at St. Francis Cemetery in Waterville.
