It is with great sadness, that the family of Otilia Catarina
Pestana Silvestre announce her passing on September 8, 2016
while on holidays in Portugal. She was born 84 years ago in Santa
Barbara de Nexe, Algarve, Portugal on March 14, 1932. Otilia will
be lovingly remembered by her husband of 65 years, Custodio,
her son Faustino (Donna), her three grandchildren, Nicole,
Tyler and Matthew (Dorothy, mother of the children), brother
Isauro Guerreiro (Ilidia), extended family and many friends both in Canada and Portugal. Her passions included cooking, baking, knitting, crocheting and sewing. She could also be found in the garden, with Custodio, tending to their vegetables and flowers. Otilia and Custodio loved to travel and returned to Portugal each year to see their relatives and friends back home.
Her memory is our keepsake
With which will never part
God has her in his keeping
We have her in our hearts.
