Feliz Bella "Phyllis" Sequeira Obituary
Sequeira, Feliz Bella "Phyllis" 04/05/1922 ~ 04/22/2014 SAN DIEGO -- Feliz Bella da Silva was born in Maderia, Portugal in the town of Paul do Mar and came to America at the age of 12, settling in the Point Loma community of San Diego for 80 years. In 1940 she married Harold Silva and it was then that she legally changed her name to Phyllis. She remarried in 1958. She was a fabulous cook and baker and a magnificent singer, singing Portuguese Fados on the radio in the 40's. Phyllis had a beautiful and infectious smile. Always fashionably late, she knew how to make an entrance. She was the life of the party, she loved to laugh and dancing was her passion. She could out dance anyone on the dance floor well into her 80's. She always said she would rather dance than eat. Family, Faith, Religion and the Portuguese community were the things that mattered most in her life. She is survived by her children Harold Silva Jr., Diane Silva and Shelly Cramer, grandchildren Kellen Cramer, Nicole Hardin (Jason), Gerald and Lauren Silva, five great-grandchildren and hundreds of nieces and nephews. Rosary and Memorial Mass will be at St. Agnes Church on April 30th at 9:30 a.m.
