In Memory of
Sydiria Ann Silvia
April 17, 1946–October 27, 2017
Sydiria Ann Silvia, age 71, passed gracefully after a long battle with Alzheimer’s, on Saturday, October 27, 2017.
Sydiria Silvia was born in Portland, Oregon on April 17, 1946. She graduated from Jefferson High School in 1964. She worked as a supervisor for the Port of Portland (Portland’s International Airport).
She was predeceased by her parents, Sylvia Ann Glenn and Marcus Garvey Glenn. Sydiria will be lovingly remembered by her children Myldred Marie Silvia and Sydiria Ann Reese. Her grandchildren Marcus Silvia, Marvin Silvia-Carter, Maurice Silvia-Carter, Nevaeh Rye’Ann Grant and Xavier Maurice Reese. Her brothers William Maurice Glenn, Thomas Glenn, and Robert Glenn.
While Sydiria was a devoted mother and grandmother, one great burning calling was to provide for her brother William Glenn. William’s many challenges in life stirred Sydiria’s calling to be his advocate and friend. Sydiria enjoyed reading books, watching basketball and football games especially with her brother Thomas Glenn.
A Funeral Service in memory of Sydiria will be held on Friday, November 3, 2017, at 12:00 p.m. at New Zion Revival church, 3516 NE 71st. Portland, Oregon 97213, with Rev. Willie Hurst officiating.
