Josephine Silva passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, at her home in Bayfield, CO on July 20, 2018. Josephine was born in Durango on April 15, 1929 to Eufemmia and Amarante Barry. Josephine was raised in Durango along with her ten brothers and one sister. Josephine married Ross Silva in 1953 and together they raised three children. As a mother, Josephine did not hesitate to provide choice words in Spanish when her kids were being knuckleheads. She was a very loving, kind, and hard-working mom. She loved hiking, gardening, discovering rocks and watching wildlife.

Josephine was preceded by her husband of 50 years. She is survived by her children Charlene (Ben) Cordova, Matthew (Lupe) Silva, & Barry Silva; brother Rudy Barry; grandchildren Jonathan (Krissy), Kristina (Larry), Ashley (Craig), Samantha (Tyler), Sunie (Davey), Theresa, & Rhonda; great-grandchildren Peyton, Preston, Emerald, Alexeya, Hannah, Haley, Craig Jr., Ava, and twins Milo & Braxton; many nieces & nephews.
