Maria de Lourdes Silva

In Loving Memory of Maria de Lourdes Silva

April 7, 1927 – January 21, 2013


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Maria de Lourdes Silva on January 21, 2013. Lourdes slipped peacefully into the arms of her Lord Jesus. She is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Artur; her son Arthur (Maria); her daughter Filomena (Durval); her son Jose (Lola); her grandchildren David (Chrissy), Christine (Christopher), Joshua, Daniel, Andrew (Amy), Kristy (Cameron), Jonathan, Amanda and Eva; great grandchildren Caleb, Olivia, Dain, Cohen, Jillian, Hazen and James; brother-in-law Mariano da Silva; sisters-in-law, Merces da Silva and Cremilde da Silva; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.


Lourdes had a wonderful sense of humour and was loved by all who knew her.


She will be sadly missed.


A celebration of Lourdes’ life was held at Christ the King Catholic Church on Saturday, Janaury 26, 2013.

The Silva and DaCosta families would like to express their gratitude to all for attending Lourdes’ funeral mass, and also all the prayers that she received from so many friends. A special thank you to Father Andy Takach for visiting Lourdes at her home.


Forever loved and missed.
