Obituary for Sylvia M. Fell (Reinholdt)


Sylvia M. (Reinholdt) Fell passed away peacefully on November 7, 2018; she was 90 years old. Sylvia was born in Brooklyn, NY, a daughter to the late Eric and Lillian (Quist) Reinholdt. She spent her childhood in the Quinsigamond Village area of Worcester prior to moving to Northborough in 1955.
Sylvia was involved in the Northborough community, serving as Register of Voters for 25 years. She also actively served as a Girl Scout leader, and enjoyed her time bowling at Sawyer's over the years. She was proud to be nominated as Northborough Woman of the Week in 1968. In between family duties, Sylvia sold Avon and Amway and earned her real estate license. In her spare time Sylvia also enjoyed cross stitching, knitting and solving crossword puzzles. Along with her two greatest treasures in her life, were her faith and her family.
