There was not one life, soul or human whom she did not leave an impressionable impact on.  She will be remembered for her courageous battle, her strong will, hard work ethic and huge generous heart.

Anyone who walked into her life became family and she would treat you as such.  Silvia loved, praised and adored all her children.  She was proud of all of their accomplishments and instilled strength and patience.  She taught them to put their kids before themselves and to work hard so that their kids could have a better way of life.  There was nothing she would not do for her family.  If it was impossible, Silvia made mountains move.  She would never let you see her down.  If she were having a tough day, you would not know it.  She continued each day to the fullest.  Those whose lives she touched will tremendously miss her.

Pallbearers are Aquiles C. Rendon, Jimmy Ray Rendon Jr., Christopher D. Rendon, Jason Ramos, Mario Ramos, Phillip Herrera Jr., Alex A. Gonzalez, Christopher A. Mendoza and Anthony C. Rendon
