Patricia J Silliman

Patricia Josephine Silliman, 85, of Antwerp passed away Wednesday, June 15, 2016 at Defiance Inpatient Hospice Center.

Pat was born in Willard on December 20, 1930, a daughter of the late Corrin F. (Westrick) and Otto E. Boff.

In 1953 she married Robert Silliman, who passed away in 2015.

She was also preceded in death by her siblings, Mary Jane Deemer and Kenny & Jerry Boff.

Pat loved camping and flower gardening, but her best moments were spent with her family. Her five children were her greatest achievement. Holiday gatherings with them gave her great joy as did  her sense of humor for her family. Her faith and worshipping at St Michael's Catholic Church were very important to her.
