Jean Marie Pimentel Silva
Feb. 13, 1930-Feb. 23, 2013
Jean Marie Pimentel Silva, 83 years old, passed away peacefully on February 23, 2013. Jean was the respected Matriarch and Star of her family. She was a great wife, an incredible and amazing mother to her four children and the absolute best grandmother to seven and great-grandmother to four. Her family was her world. Jean loved being a mother and grandmother and was actively involved in all of their lives. One of her greatest joys was treating her family to breakfasts and dinners, surprising her children and grandchildren with special family trips to Hawaii, crocheting sweaters and blankets for all and making the best cookies ever. Jean never admitted to spoiling her family, but rather said “her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were just very well loved”.
Jean was known for her hard work, incredible generosity and thoughtfulness. She had a very entertaining sense of humor and had a real zest for life. Jean loved to read, bake, play bingo, bowl, play cards, chat with friends and volunteer at the Ridge View Commons Senior facility…just to name a few. Jean was blessed with many wonderful friends and dear family members. She was loved by all, and she will be greatly missed, but will never be forgotten.
Jean was preceded in death by her best friend and husband, Marvin “Bud” Silva. She was loved and admired and will be missed by her four children and their spouses, Daryl and Patty Silva, Marvajean and Larry Harrell, Luann and Jamie Buna, Lynette and Sam Carone. And grandchildren; Jeff and Stephanie Silva, Brian Buna and Tammi Valperga, David and Lindsay Silva, Nic Carone, Christina Buna and AJ Franco, Kevin Carone and Ashleigh Bernardo, Kacie Buna and Kevin Boggs. And four great-grandsons; Ayden, Mason, Frank and Joseph Silva.
In honoring Jean’s request, there will be no memorial service. A Celebration of Life for the immediate family will take place at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to your favorite charity in honor of Jean Silva’s life.
