She grew up and attended school in Carrington, graduating in 2019 as Salutatorian from Carrington High School. She began studying Biology and Forensic Sciences at the University of North Dakota with dreams of becoming a Medical Examiner.

Sylvie enjoyed singing in choir, traveling the world, kayaking, fishing and hiking in the great outdoors.

  60. Dear Pate family, I really miss Sylvie! I never really saw her but whenever I did she was super nice and sweet! She was and still is an amazing second cousin. Sorry I couldn’t make it to her funeral. I’m also sorry that this letter is late. Sylvie was a super sweet, smart, kind, nice and beautiful girl. And I wish she was still on earth with us. But I hope she’s happier up in heaven! -Shae LaRocque
