Loetta “Letty” A. Sylvis Ergott of Jersey Shore went home to be with the Lord, while staying at her daughter’s home in Millheim, on Monday, Dec. 9, 2019. She was born Aug. 28, 1931 in South Williamsport; to the late Randall S. Sylvis and Mildred M. (Miller) Sylvis.

Letty grew up in Rochester and Lancaster, N.Y., and Jersey Shore, where she graduated from high school in 1949. She lived in Biloxi, Miss., State College, Appalachian, N.Y., W. Redding, Conn., and Jersey Shore. She was a volunteer at Danbury Hospital in Connecticut and Jersey Shore Hospital.

She was a member of Emmanuel Community Church for 38 years and served as a deaconess for many years. Letty loved her family and friends and spent most of her time talking, listening and praying with them. She loved to talk and would strike up a conversation everywhere she went. She especially sought after any opportunity to share her testimony and God’s saving grace through His son Jesus Christ.
