Sybil Francis Roye Stroud was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She left this world on February 11, 2022 at age 94.
Sybil was born to Hardaway and Hattie Roye on August 13, 1927. After graduating from Tallassee High School in 1945, Sybil began working at the Tallassee Mill where she met the love of her life, Walter “WL” Stroud. Sybil and Walter had a small wedding in East Tallassee on June 24, 1950. Together, they had 1 child: Glendon “Glen” Roy Stroud, born on October 6, 1951. Sybil worked for 20 years at Tallassee Community Hospital as a respiratory therapist.
Sybil had a deep love for God, family, living life to the fullest, and her dogs. She always found the bright side in even the worst of situations, and she had a way of making everyone smile. People seemed to always gravitate towards Sybil because of her infectious personality. She never met a stranger and would make friends with everyone she encountered; “Hey Shuga” she would say to all those near and dear to her. She kept people rolling in laughter because she could find humor in the most mundane life circumstances. She loved telling people, “I can’t see, I can’t hear, but thank God I can still drive”.
Sybil is survived by her grandchildren: Hannah (Chase) Hornsby, Justin Stroud, Nikki (Bryan) Cooper; Great-Grandchildren: Ryder and Pyper Hornsby, Madison Moreland; and Niece: Robyn Hill. She is preceded in death by her husband, Walter “WL” Stroud; Son, Glen Stroud; grandson: Chris Moreland; brother: Glendon “Marvin” Hethcox, and her twin brother: Sydney Roye.
A funeral service is scheduled for 2 pm on February 14, 2022 at Linville Memorial Funeral Home (viewing will be 1 hour prior) officiated by Rev. John Sparks, followed by a brief graveside service at Rose Hill Cemetery.
