Sylvia S. Buck, 87, Lincolnville, passed away on May 21, 2019 at Waldo County General Hospital in Belfast following a brief illness.

She was also a wonderful cook and hosted many parties in her younger years and Sylvia would always outdo herself on Christmas and make her special cookie baskets as gifts for her family until her health made her unable. A thoughtful person, she would always send cards to family and friends. One of her favorite pastimes was talking and reminiscing about her past, including her love to go dancing in her younger years, with her great granddaughter Jackie and looked forward to her visits.
