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. They had 5 children,  Michael (Christine) of Defiance, Mary Ann (Garry) Crites of Durham, NC, Sharon of Paulding, David (Barb) of Cromwell, IN & Stephen of Cincinnati; siblings, Virginia Wholf of Hilliard,  & Elaine Baker of Castro Valley, CA; 8 grandchildren & 5 great grandchildren.  

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.

Viewing is Monday, 9:45 to 10:15 am at Dooley Funeral Home, Antwerp, where viewing is also Sunday, 2-6 pm with the Rosary recited at 6 pm. 

Funeral Mass is at Saint Michael Catholic Church, Hicksville at 11 am on Monday, June 20th. 

She will be lad to rest at Fountain Grove Cemetery, Bryan.

Pat had an amazing laugh that always cheered those around her. I spent allot of time at their home growing up and she always made me feel like I was one of the family. Prayers and heart wishes for the family

We'll miss seeing Pat's lovely face and Bob too at St. Michael's. They were such a big part of our early Christ Renews His Parish years here. I don't think I'll ever forget Pat's smile and that laugh! Peace to the family, and I hope to see them both again on the other side!
