Sylvia Mancillas, 59, of Indianapolis, IN, passed away on April 12, 2021.
Sylvia was born in Indianapolis, IN on February 8, 1962 to Ignacio Mancillas and Celia (Salas) Ontiverous. She was the Supervisor in her Department for many years. She had a strong work ethic, and she always worked hard for her family. She was bossy, but as the oldest she came by it naturally. She was stubborn and strong willed, she always knew what she wanted, when she wanted it, how she wanted it, and where. She was a fighter, and fought her illness for many years, leaving the doctors scratching their heads at how far past their expectations she exceeded.
Sylvia was a girly girl and liked to get all dolled up, complete with nails, makeup, and hair. She loved dressing up her beloved dog Sophie with her, and her youngest Reyna, matching all 3 of them. Her family meant the world to her, and her happy place was the lake house they always went to. Fishing, boating, or just grilling out, as long as her family was around her she was happiest. Sylvia loved doing all the family holidays up there, and she always made them special. She had a loving heart, and when she was needed she always stepped up to the plate for her loved ones.
Sylvia is survived by her children Stacy, Marky, Anthony, Nicole, and Reyna; her stepson Nathan; her grandchildren Cameron, Jaylen, Gabby, Matt Matt, Rhanissa, Little Anthony, Elijah, Jason Jr, William, Donovan, Cayden, and Caleigh; her boyfriend of 15 years Joe Fulton; her father Ignacio Mancillas; her siblings Noe, Irma, Ruben, Celia, Leandro, and Ramiro; her dog Sophie, who was her baby that she dolled up and doted on; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
Sylvia is preceded in passing by her mother Celia Ontiverous and her infant brother Adrian.
