Sammye Castle Silver died holding the hand of Jack Clayton Silver on Christmas Eve 2012. She leaves behind the beneficiaries of her life’s work as a mother and grandmother; her precious daughters, Susan Silver and Annie Silver Brady, her adored grandchildren Maggie and Pierce Brady and her dear son-in-law Stephen Brady. Though she considered her life’s calling to be the creation of family, she created gorgeous pastels and oils as a self-taught artist. She is remembered as a woman who would do most anything for her loved ones, resilient, tender and strong, she stood by her children, sang praises of her grandchildren, cherished her friends, and said prayers of gratitude for living in this extraordinary country of ours. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on November 28, 1931 to Marie and Forrest Castle, two amazing forces to be reckoned with, she attended Daniel Webster High School and the University of Tulsa. From there, she built a family, worked at the Tulsa County Courthouse and created her artwork. She is now with the holy spirits of so many of those she loved including her beloved mother who died 17 years ago the day after Christmas. She will be remembered every day. Services will be held at New Haven Methodist Church on Saturday, December 29th, at 11 AM. Contributions in her memory may be made to the American Cancer Society.
