As written by Tiny Silva:

Since I wasn’t given a middle name, I lived my entire life known as “Tiny”. At about the age of 9 my family moved to Lamar, Colorado where I lived until 1960 when I married into Granada.

To this marriage, we were blessed with five children, Phillip “Chunky” Silva, Natalie Musick, Greg Silva, Richard Silva and Andrea Dowd. And that added grandchildren, Shelley Siva, Amanda Silva, Devon Silva and Jon Silva and several extended members of their in-laws families. And now great grandchildren are in the picture, Cooper, Crosby, Mia and to include our newest addition, our little Ezra. Yes!! We were blessed with a wonderful family. This became more obvious as my illness progressed. Between my Lord and my family, I never walked alone.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Augustine Trujillo, Clorinda Gomez and Sam Gomez; her beloved son, Ricky Silva; her siblings, Marcella McPerk, Michael Gomez and Lawrence Gomez as well as several extended family and in-laws.

Tiny is survived by her husband, Lawrence Silva, her children, Phillip “Chunky” (Deb) Silva; Natalie (Dana) Musick; Greg (Alice) Silva and Andrea “Andee” (Larry) Dowd; grandchildren, Michelle (Chad) Silva; Amanda (Ryan) Silva; Devon Silva; Jon (Katie) Silva and great-grandchildren, Cooper, Crosby, Mia and newest addition Ezra. She is also survived by her sister, Virginia Anthony; her brother Sammy (Dorothy) Gomez and by many special nieces and nephews, special “family members” to include Sara S and her family, The Hoppers and also a couple of good friends.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Lamar Area Hospice and/or Granada Fire Department either direct or in care of the funeral home office.

Services are under the direction of the Peacock Family.
