Beautiful Butterfly Sylvia Lynn Waymire, (nee Pickett), of Suwanee, GA passed away February 11, 2014. She is survived by her devoted husband Stephen Waymire, son Corbin Williamson, father Thires Pickett of Birmingham, AL, mother Gretha Pickett of Suwanee, GA, brothers Thires B. Pickett of Lawrenceville, GA and Timothy Pickett of Tacoma, WA, sisters Valerie Brown of Lawrenceville, GA, Donna Copeland, of Hilliard, OH, Cheryl Pickett, and LaToia Kell, both of Suwanee, GA and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Sylvia was born on January 29, 1960 in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Raised in a military family she lived in Germany, Okinawa, North Carolina, Ohio, and most recently Suwanee, GA. Sylvia graduated from Warren G. Harding High School in Warren, OH in 1978 and was a 1984 graduate of The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. While in college she served as an Army Reservist. She worked for State Farm Insurance Company for more than 30 years. She transferred with State Farm from Ohio to Georgia in 1998. Sylvia was a fierce lover of God and her family. Her philosophy that she spoke of and lived was God first, family second, and education third. Sylvia was a true servant leader who volunteered for Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Operation Christmas Child, and The Lupus Foundation of America. An adventurous spirit, Sylvia loved going on cruises with her husband, taking long walks in the park, swimming in the ocean, and cheering (very loudly) for The Ohio State University Buckeyes. Sylvia will be truly missed for the passion she had for life, for spreading God's word, and for helping others. Visitation for friends and family will be held Saturday, February 15 from 6-9 p.m. at Flanigan Funeral Home in Buford, GA. Funeral Services will take place on Sunday, February 16 at 11 a.m. at Flanigan Funeral Home.
