Irene Silva Trevino
(March 2, 1955 - March 14, 2013)
Our beloved Irene Silva Trevino went to be with our Lord and Savior on Thursday, March 14, 2013 surrounded by the love of her family. Irene was a fighter until the end and now resting in eternal peace in God's loving hands. Irene was born March 2, 1955 in Aguacalientes, Mexico. Her family moved to Santa Barbara in the late 1950's, and she was a San Marcos High School graduate. Irene married Rubel Esteban Trevino, Sr. in 1980 and had two children with him. Before her illness, Irene worked in electronics and enjoyed living life to the fullest. She was a great dancer and was always the life of the party. Irene is survived by her father Adolfo Martinez Silva; children, Rubel "Jr" Trevino (Vanessa), Yvette Hilario (Ruben), and Sonia Silva; grandchildren, Nevaeh and Nicco Trevino, Gracie, Alexander and Andrew Hilario; siblings, Rene Silva (Yolanda) and Juanita Miranda; nephews, Rene Jr., Israel, Robert Jr.; nieces, Miranda (Francisco) and Veronica as well as numerous cousins, extended nieces, nephews, in-laws, family and friends. She was preceded in death by her mother, Lupe Maria Silva. Irene was a strong woman with a great sense of humor and a beautiful smile. Although our hearts are saddened by her passing, we take solace in the fact that she is now resting and no longer in pain. We choose to rejoice in the memories of good times spent with her telling stories, making us laugh, singing, dancing or simply celebrating a good day. Irene was one of kind who will not soon be forgotten.
