Sylvia was born to Lee and Josephine Rodriguez Adams, on July 23, 1955, in Bryan. Sylvia was one of seven children. She was a lady of great compassion and of a strong work ethic that she passed on to her children. She went to work while in high school but later completed her secondary education in 1990. Sylvia is greatly missed at O’Reilly’s where she was employed nearly twenty years. She was an avid reader of various genres. Sylvia also, enjoyed motorcycle rides with her husband Brian on their Harley Davidson. She loved to dance with her friends and family. In her own faith practice Sylvia looked forward to making her biannual trips to San Juan, Texas as she would pay homage to the Virgen de San Juan Basilica. She would then journey to Neuvo Progresso, Mexico to visit many of the locals and owners of puestos whom she befriended. Sylvia’s greatest time of the year were the holidays; her home was decorated with warmth and love. She so loved the season preparing tamales for her family and friends. When she was ready for short breaks Sylvia enjoyed watching the TV Land Channel while sipping on her very well-known homemade Strawberry Margaritas. She truly was a loyal family and friend to all; she would give from her want to those in need. Her generosity was welcomed by many. With all of her enthusiasm for life she was a devoted fan to many sports especially her Texas A&M Football team, the Houston Astros, and America’s Team the Dallas Cowboys as she rooted them on even in her last days. Sylvia attended Mass as a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church.

Her son Carlos “Charlie” Alvardo, Jr.; her grand-son, Jordan Reyes; her mother, Josephine Adams; her sister, Mary Sauceda; her paternal grandparents, Pedro and Julia Adams; her maternal grandparents, Jose and Sophia Rodriguez; all precede Sylvia in death.

She is survived by her husband, who was her best friend, Brian Farmer; her father, Lee Adams, her daughters, Andrea and Brad Zgabay, and Debbie and Michael Steen; her four grandchildren, Luis Trevino, of Houston, Colby Trevino, of College Station, Morgan Trevino, of Houston, Brittany Marquez, of Bryan; her five great-grandchildren, Caden, Penelope, Alaia, Asher, and Briella; her siblings, Linda Contreras, Yolanda and Toby Garcia, Richard Adams, Diane and Heron Andrade, Robert and Donna Adams, all of Bryan; her uncle, Gilbert Adams; her aunt, Olivia Gomez; along with numerous nephews and nieces, cousins, and many close friends; her beloved pets, Ginger the dog and Inkie the cat.

The family would like to thank Allumine Hospice, Doctors Garth Morgan, Mark Floyd, Leonide Toussiant, Scott Goble and staff, along with her caregivers who attended her during this time as well for all the love and support.
