Marion T. Silva Age 80, passed away Sunday June 24 at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital after a brief illness. A funeral Mass will be offered on Tuesday, July 3, at St. Stephen's Catholic Church, 601 Eucalyptus Drive, San Francisco at 10:30 AM. Marion was born in 1932 in San Francisco along with her twin sister Rita, and she lived in the City her entire life. She attended high school at Immaculate Conception Academy. She was married to Harold Silva in 1953 and the couple had four children. She spent most of her working life at Sears & Roebuck in San Francisco. In the 1960s she was an avid boater with her family, spending many weekends at the Oyster Point Yacht Club and boating in the Bay and Delta. As her children became older she devoted more time to traveling, both internationally and throughout the United States. Marion took trips with friends, with her sister and with her children, and she was especially fond of the California Gold Country and the areas around Death Valley. She and her family also spent a great deal of time in Los Gatos at the cabin she owned with her sister, where she kept busy gardening. When not on the go she was a constant reader. Marion was a devout Catholic. Marion is survived by her twin sister, Rita Small, and her 4 children, Michael and wife Diana, John, Judith Thompson and husband Todd, and Matthew and wife June; along with 9 grandchildren and two nieces. She was predeceased by her former husband and still friend, Harry, who passed away in 2010. Viewing will begin at 4 PM on Monday, July 2 at Duggan's Serra Mortuary, 500 Westlake Ave, Daly City, with Rosary following at 7 PM. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to Catholic Charities.

My Dearest Sweet Aunt Marion, You are the most loving person I have known and I was Blessed you were in my life. You taught me how to live the "Golden Rule," live life, have a strong faith and so many things. You NEVER said a negative word to or about anyone! I will always be grateful you welcomed me into your family so I could finish my senior year at St. Paul's. That was so typical of the generous person you are. I learned so many wonderful things from you. You will always be in my heart and I love you forever. Your loving niece Cathy
