      Sylvia E. Davies, 88, recently of Matawan, formerly of East Brunswick, passed away Saturday August 25, 2018 at Madison Center of Matawan when she succumbed to dementia, a form of Alzheimer's disease.

       She also loved to travel, was always on the go, and was up to a trip to Friendly's any time of the day. Her car, a 1998 Jetta, had over 200,000 miles on it. Sylvia also enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and was a lover of life with an infectious smile.
