Standard Process Inc. Matriarch Sylvia DuBois Remembered for Her Nonprofit Leadership

Recognized for a lifetime of charitable service, DuBois is runner-up in BizTimes Media’s inaugural Nonprofit Excellence Awards program

Sylvia DuBois, who passed away December 30, 2013, was named BizTimes Media’s Nonprofit Excellence Lifetime Achievement award runner-up on Nov. 4.

PALMYRA, Wis. (Nov. 6, 2014)—Sylvia DuBois, matriarch of Standard Process Inc. in Palmyra, Wisconsin, passed away in December 2013, yet her legacy lives on today. On Nov. 4, Milwaukee’s BizTimes Media, a business magazine focused on Southeastern Wisconsin, named DuBois runner-up in the Lifetime Achievement category of its inaugural Nonprofit Excellence Awards program. DuBois and 29 other award program finalists were honored during a special ceremony held at the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. The event celebrated corporate citizenship, philanthropy and nonprofit leadership in southeastern Wisconsin.

"She taught everyone she met how to give unconditionally of themselves."

“My mother was a remarkable, compassionate woman and a true advocate for the needy,” said DuBois’ son and president of Standard Process, Charles C. DuBois. “She taught everyone she met how to give unconditionally of themselves. Having her recognized by the community for her lifetime of charitable acts is very special for me and my family.”

During her life, DuBois was devoted to her family and many charitable causes, from nonprofit organizations such as Penfield Children’s Center to local food pantries and meal programs for the hungry. In October 2013, her high school alma mater, Divine Savior Holy Angels, honored her with its 2013 Jubilarian of the Year award. The award recognized DuBois’ “lifetime devotion to helping others while living her Catholic beliefs.”
As vice president and owner of Standard Process, Sylvia DuBois oversaw the company’s charitable donations and corporate culture. Passionate about family, DuBois and her husband Frank DuBois created a caring, family orientated culture at Standard Process that provides many work-life balance opportunities to Standard Process employees. She was instrumental in the development of Vita Kids Learning Center, the company’s on-site child care facility, as well as the company’s on-site Whole Food Court, which offers employees affordable, nutritious lunches.
The three finalists in the Lifetime Achievement category included DuBois, Norman Doll of Pieper Electric and Raejean Kanter of The Falk Group public relations firm.
