Esther Sybil de St. Jeor Bryson ended her mortal journey on this earth on Friday, April 6, 2018, at the age of 94 years.  She had a very peaceful passing at her home in Nampa, Idaho.  Sybil was born in Merced, California, the fourth of five children, to William and Mabel de St. Jeor.  She met Vern Bryson while he was stationed at Castle AFB in Merced, and they were married in the Salt Lake Temple, in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1942.  Vern and Sybil were married for 62 years before his passing in 2005.  She is survived by her children Britt (Sue), Forrest (Mardene), Craig, Nadine Turner (Gary) and Elaine McGrath.  Her most cherished legacy is that of 20 grandchildren (plus 11 spouses) and 43 great grandchildren.  Sybil was blessed with an amazing life.  She loved music, traveling, and her family.  She was a gifted musician and enjoyed leading choirs of all kinds through the years.  She loved supporting her husband in his United States Air Force career. She enjoyed traveling the world and was able to travel extensively through the United States of America, Europe, Asia and the South Pacific.  She was able to travel with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on their tours in Russia and Australia.  Sybil and Vern served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Manila, Philippines, and Sybil later served a second mission at the Washington DC Temple.  Her last trip was to India in 2012, and her most enjoyed adventure was being able to go skydiving for her 91st birthday!  Sybil will be interred at the San Joaquin National Cemetery, in Santa Nella, California, with her husband.  There will be a graveside service on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at 1PM, followed by a celebration of Sybil’s life with family and close friends.  Sybil is an inspiration to all who knew her on how to live life to its fullest and enjoy life’s blessings.  She wanted to be remembered with joy in all the happy memories and a smile in the heart.
