Maria Silva

Maria Silva, the daughter of Librado Torres and Apolinaria Palomares Torres; wife of Miguel Silva, Sr.; and mother to Miguel Silva, Jr..

Mom lost her Mother at a young age. Later she came to the U.S. with a nephew. Sadly, he passed away a few years back. Mom made Chicago, and most importantly Bridgeport neighborhood  her home, met her future husband in a dance club in the neighborhood, and she would later own a house in the same neighborhood not far from the dance club. She was kind, always there to help, never a bad bone in her body. She had a sense of humor that was unique to her. Could be stubborn but seemed to help in life, once she dug her heels in, that's it. Mom was also a Marshall Field's girl, loved to go downtown, shop for shoes and dresses. Mom was a strong woman, being a welder/ machinist in the 70s in a man's world. Mom was married 50 years to my Pops, a love and bond between them so strong until the end. May you rest in peace, and now you get to see your Mom, Dad, Sisters, and Brothers who have gone to the Heavenly Gates.
