Doris was a resident of Manteca for 71 years where she was a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. In her younger years she enjoyed traveling with her husband, dancing and attending local social gatherings. She was a simple lady who loved gardening, eating out at local restaurants and visiting friends over a cup of tea and a challenging game of cards. Doris had a gift of creativity; knitting many blankets, scarfs, caps and socks for family, friends and church organizations. Doris loved jewelry, always matching each accessory precisely to her daily ensemble. Doris will be remembered as a devoted wife and mother, a wonderful grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be deeply missed.
The Silva family would like to thank Dr. Wolf and his outstanding staff for the care and support they have given Doris throughout the years. They would also like to thank Bethany Home in Ripon, for the extended love and care they have shown.
