Sylvie Y. Schoucair, the beloved Aunt and Foster Mother of our dear Parishioner, Jed Schoucair, Fell-Asleep-In-The-Lord on Tuesday December 3, 2019 at her home in Beirut, Lebanon. Sylvie was well loved by her three sisters and two brothers, whom she unselfishly dedicated her life to. Learning of her brother’s divorce, she broke her marriage engagement and volunteered to take care of and raise his children, Jed (3 year old son) and Raïda (8-month-old daughter). Her continuous love and service to the family was so strong that Jed and Raïda were spared the pain of the absence of their own mother. Sylvie, a woman of great faith, prayerfully and unselfishly took on the role of caregiver and helped provide a stable and nurturing home life for them.
