Syvilla Ada Wyman Sukeforth, 83, passed to her heavenly home on April 2, 2020 with family by her side.
Born on Jan. 11, 1937 to Raymond and Theresa Wyman of Small Point, Syvilla grew up on the family farm with her four siblings. She graduated from Morse High School in 1955 and worked at her family’s general store in Small Point, and as a bookkeeper at Shepard’s Shoe Store in Bath. She married Eugene Sukeforth on July 15, 1956. His Air Force enlistment took them to Germany where they welcomed their first son. After military service, the three toured Europe before returning to Bath where they had three more boys and then bought a farm in Wiscasset. The couple established Wiscasset Lawn and Garden Center which they owned and operated for nearly 30 years.
Syvilla was an active member of the Bible Baptist Church where she often worshiped in song. She enjoyed music, playing piano, reading, painting, gardening, traveling, friends and family.
Syvilla was predeceased by her parents; sisters, Colleen Wyman Cook, and Maxine Wyman; and a brother, Myron Wyman.
Syvilla is survived by her sister, Carol Wyman Doughty and husband Harry of Phippsburg; husband, Eugene Sukeforth; son, Dale Sukeforth and wife Lisa of New Gloucester; son, Gregory Sukeforth and wife Edna of Wiscasset; son, Bruce Sukeforth and wife Bonnie of Wiscasset; and son, Brian Sukeforth of Edgecomb; 12 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
