Miss Maria (Belma) Silva

Miss Maria (Belma) Silva of Manchester, TN passed away Tuesday, November 30, 2021, at AHAVA Nursing Home in Clarksville.

She was born in Shanghai China and later resided in Hong Kong. She was sponsored by her sister, Elmy Brandon, to come to the states. She was employed by the Circuit Sessions Court Clerk for 53 years where she retired. She was a generous person, always going around town leaving something for those she came in contact with.

She was predeceased by two siblings when she was a child, her parents, and stepmother, three adult sisters in the past 7 years, two nephews and one niece.

She is survived by a niece, Brenda (Kim) Allen and other nieces and nephews that reside out of the US.
There will be visitation at FBC, Manchester 5 to7 p.m. Thursday, December 2, 2021, and a graveside service at 11 a.m. on December 3, 2021 at Rose Hill Memorial Gardens.

The family request no flowers but ask that you take an angel from a tree instead to memorialize her giving to others.
