It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother, Silveria D’Arco, on July 3rd, 2023.
Silveria was born on April 14, 1927 on the island of Ponza to Antonio and Maria Ambrosino. She has been a pillar of strength as she bravely battled cancer for the last 6 months. Her indomitable spirit and love of family have been an inspiration to all of us. She loved hosting Thanksgiving and Easter over the years. Feeding us was her passion; Nonna enjoyed making frittata for everyone who stopped by to visit. She lived life to the fullest enjoying concerts, visits to Ponza and Ischia, and cruises.
Silveria is preceded in death by her husband Luigi. She is survived by her loving children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and long-time friends. We will miss her dearly.
