Sylvia Lucille (Sosolik) Ottea McConnell passed on to a new life Monday evening, September 27th, 2021. She was born on July 8, 1935, in Bryan, Texas. She was a kind and gracious lady with a welcoming smile, few complaints, and a generous heart. She was a homecoming queen, an inspirational mother, and a highly successful real estate agent and broker in the Kansas City area for over 30 years. She loved her friends and family and was known for having the kindest heart and most generous soul. She enjoyed playing bridge, planting butterfly gardens, golfing, and reading. Sylvia was always dressed to the “nines”, coiffed and lipsticked. It was important that she always look her very best. “Miss Manners “was a fun game she played with all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
A huge thank you to ALL of the staff at Mission Chateau and the Villages of Mission for their loving kindness and care.
She was preceded in death by her mother and father (Lottye and Frank Sosolik) and is survived by her brother (Frank Sosolik, Jr.) and cousin (Sid Berger), both of Bryan, Texas. She was adored and will be greatly missed by her daughters, Cindy Ottea Doolittle( Mark) of Kansas City, Missouri, and Julie Ottea Fife ( Kevin) of Rowlett, Texas, and her son, Jim Ottea of Baton Rouge, LA. She leaves eight grandchildren (Danyelle, Nick, Kelly, Cameron, Kayti, Dylan, Brett, and Shelby) and four great-grandchildren (Everly, Amira, Danielle, and Ainsley).
Following a family celebration of her life, Sylvia will be buried alongside her parents in Bryan, Texas.
