Silvio, Anna Marie Accardo
It is with great sadness we announce the death of our beloved mother Anna Marie Accardo Silvio. She died peacefully at home surrounded by her family on May 2, 2021. She was 89 years old. Anna Marie was born on March 24, 1932 to Phillip and Mary Accardo. She was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Lakeland, Louisiana. She was educated in the Catholic School System graduating from the second class of Redemptorist High School in 1951. She attended business college then married the love of her life Jerome (J.V.) Silvio March 11, 1953. She is preceded in death by her parents, Phillip and Mary Accardo; her husband, J.V. Silvio; her grandson, Christopher Silvio; three of her siblings, Helene, Rosemary, and Harry; her daughter-in-law Donna and many other loved ones. As the oldest of seven siblings, she has been a mother all her life offering love, advice and her opinion about everything. She leaves behind 5 children: Maland Silvio, Victor Silvio, Jerri Anne Majeste (Donald), Paul Silvio, Rosemary St. Romain (Michael), 19 grandchildren: Cody, Conrad, Angelina, Leigh, Micha, Victor, Jr., Ashley, Christopher, Kevin, Victoria, Timothy, Erika, Matthew, Bryce, Lauren, Justin, Brittney, Bryna, Breanna, 39 great grandchildren, 8 great great grandchildren, 3 siblings, 3 in-laws, numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family. Anna Marie was first and foremost a mother, she was an incredibly special lady who was loved by everyone she met. She is famous for her Italian cookies and lasagna. All who knew her realized that she held the answers to all our questions regarding ancestry, cooking, childcare, and a plethora of highly prized information. She was a stubborn, proud, fierce little woman who had more love in her little finger than most people have in their whole body, as our father J.V. is famous for telling us. She always made time for everyone, she provided support and love for her family. She loved to crochet, and her hands were rarely idle; she made beautiful works of art that will be cherished for years to come. She loved teaching her craft to her many children and grandchildren, though some of us are not quite as adept as she would have liked. She loved to talk and tell stories; her phone line was always busy. She loved to chat about her childhood and her life with our father J.V. She will be missed by so many, but her legacy lives on in each of her children.
