Nancy Burke Sylva J.D. ’92’s passion for art led her to fine art painting, wax sculpture, metal work jewelry, textile arts, and fabricating stained glass. She also traveled the world in search of local artisans—braving the jungles of Peru during a revolt, venturing to Egypt to witness the mysteries of the Sphinx, and exploring the temples of Thailand, the villages of Oaxaca, Mexico, and the art museums and street markets of Europe. At age 48, Nancy started law school and practiced family law for ten years. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, David Sylva J.D. ’63, and children.
