Sylvia was the first born of nine children to the late Robert Cecil Vaughan and Zebudah Johnson Vaughan was raised in Orange with her siblings and remained there until early adulthood. During her childhood she attended public schools and was a member of Little Zion Baptist Church. She was married to Jimmie Lee Walker for a number of years and then to Samuel Ray Blakey. She was the mother of two sons, James Lee and Charles Allen Walker; and one daughter, Phyllis Ann Johnson.
She lived and worked in the DC metropolitan area most of her adult life. She returned to live in Orange County Virginia for a number of years until her health began to diminish; she was moved to Maryland and became a resident in the Cherry Lane Nursing Center, Laurel Maryland.
