Marina Nicole Silva

July 3, 1999 ~ September 2, 2023 (age 24) 24 Years Old


Marina Nicole Silva, a beacon of joy and love, graced the world with her presence on July 3, 1999, in Plant City, Florida. With a heavy heart, we announce that Marina's vibrant light was extinguished on September 2, 2023, in Lakeland, Florida. Although her time with us was far too brief, the impact she made on those around her was immeasurable.

Born to Alicia Silva and Eustiquio Torres, Marina was a source of immense pride for her family, including her beloved grandmother, Theresa Silva, and devoted sister, Sonya Zubiller. Her family was her cornerstone, providing a foundation of love and support that enabled Marina to shine brilliantly in all she did. She was a graduate of Willis Peters Exceptional Center in Dover, Florida, where her compassionate spirit and intelligence were recognized and cherished by her teachers and peers alike.

Marina was a beacon of determination and courage, actively participating in the Special Olympics, where she showcased her skills in the tennis ball throw and gymnastics. Her participation was not just about the competition; it was a testament to her spirit of resilience and her ability to inspire others with her unwavering determination.

Marina had an infectious love for life that was evident in her every action. She had a fondness for the color purple, a hue that perfectly represented her - vibrant, beautiful, and unique. She was passionate about music and dancing, her spirit soaring with every beat and rhythm. Her love for her sister and mother was profound, and her bond with them was a testament to her deep capacity for love and loyalty.

Everyone who had the fortune of crossing paths with Marina was touched by her radiant personality. She was a bright light, illuminating every room she entered. Her beauty was not just physical; it emanated from her heart, reflecting her kindness and generosity. Marina's humor was infectious, and her sweet nature endeared her to all. She was a friend to everyone, her open heart and loving nature drawing people to her.

Marina was loving, thoughtful, and intelligent. Her capacity to love knew no bounds, and her thoughtfulness made everyone around her feel valued and cherished. Her intelligence was not just academic; she had an emotional intelligence that allowed her to connect with others on a deep level.

As we remember Marina, let us all take a moment to reflect on the words of Helen Keller: "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart." Marina embodied this sentiment, as she truly was one of the most beautiful things in this world, and her impact will continue to be felt in the hearts of those she touched.

Marina Nicole Silva was more than just a daughter, a sister, a student, or a friend. She was a beacon of positivity, a source of inspiration, and a testament to the power of love and resilience. Her light may have been extinguished in the physical world, but it will continue to shine brightly in our hearts, guiding us and reminding us of the beautiful soul that touched our lives. Marina, your spirit will live on, inspiring us to live with love, joy, and resilience, just as you did.
