Sylvia Jan Calcaterra

November 22, 1946 ~ February 21, 2020

Beautiful, kind, and honest hearted Sylvia Jan Shirley Calcaterra fell asleep in death on February 21, 2020 at the age of 73. She was loved by her two children, Patty Ann and Paul Calcaterra, Jr., along with her three grandchildren, Caitlyn Angelina, Coraleigh and Elijah Paul Calcaterra along with a myriad of dear friends. Born in Brady, Texas, her kind generous spirit was as expansive as the Texas sky.

She met Paul Calcaterra in Fort Worth, TX and later married him in El Paso where she raised their two children. She took pride in being a mother and wife. She was an amazing cook and impressive seamstress. Her sharp wit and keen sense of humor made her the life of any social gathering.

One of her greatest joys besides her children was coming to know Jehovah and dedicating her life to serving Him. She and her daughter Patty have served Jehovah for 24 years first in Fort Worth and later in Vero Beach.

The birth of her first grandchild motivated Jan to move to Vero Beach. She truly reveled in the treasured role of Granny.

She enjoyed her life in Vero Beach and all the wonderful friends she made in the congregation. She will be remembered for her sharp wit, graciousness and large heart. Her final thoughts were focused on the resurrection promise Jehovah has extended to us all.

I am so very sorry to hear about Jan. I knew her when she was a child and grew up with her. She was my sister and we were always at odds with each other. I loved her then, and I always will. I am sorry for your loss. I was devastated when Mom died. I remember the pain of it.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
