Maria Alice Da Silva

Maria Alice Da Silva passed away peacefully on October 6,2023 at Middlechurch Home at the age of 97.

Maria Alice was predeceased by her husband Manuel Dias Da Silva and sons Nelson, Jose, Fernando, and Angelo.

She is survived by her children; Almario, Carlos, Rui, Alise, and Regina and her numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Maria Alice was born and raised on the island of Faial, Portugal where she met and married Manuel. The family eventually immigrated to Canada in 1964.

She worked at the Health Sciences Centre for many years where she was well-respected by her supervisors and peers alike and retired at 62.

Maria Alise spent her later years doting on her grand and great grandchildren while supporting the family in any way she was able. She was also a generous donor to various charities and a compassionate woman.

The family would like to thank the employees of Middlechurch Home for the compassionate care they provided for our mother these last years.
