NewsEdith Sylla

We are saddened to report the death of our friend and CUCC member Edith Sylla.

We have learned that a memorial service will be held for Edith at her UCC church in New Hampshire.

WHEN: Friday, July 28, 2023, at 11 am, followed by a reception and lunch.
WHERE: The First Congregational Church of Hopkinton, 1548 Hopkinton Road, Hopkinton, NH 03229, with the reception following the service at the church’s nearby Parish House.


Edith was an active participant at CUCC for several decades before joining the church in 2000 in order to serve as chair of the Deacons Ministry.  She served as our moderator in 2010.  Edith brought intellectual curiosity and a commitment to justice to our life together.  We are grateful that she applied her professional expertise as an historian (of science, specializing in the medieval period) to our boxes of records during her tenure as CUCC’s historian (2009-2016).  Edith retired to New Hampshire but stayed in touch with life-long CUCC friends.
