Silvia Rosa Takacs (Pressacco)

February 25, 1959 - September 17, 2019


With deepest sorrow, we announce that our beloved daughter, sister, aunt and great aunt Silvia Rosa Takacs (Pressacco) recently passed away September 17, 2019 at the age of 60.  She is survived by her husband of 35 years Steve, her parents Virginia and Vittorio Pressacco, her brother Rob (Debbie), her sister Lora (Dan), her nephews Kyle, Adam (Dominika) and Daniel (Heather), nieces Shannon (Ken), Lisa (Mark) and Sarah (Clay) and many aunts, uncles, cousins, including the extended family in Italy.

Silvia was born on February 25, 1959 and grew up in Powell River; she was the second of three children.  She moved to Vancouver to follow a career at St. Paul’s Hospital, where she met her husband Steve.  She celebrated her retirement this past February after working for 35 years at St. Paul’s, where she was known as a hard worker who cared and showed love for those in need.  She will be remembered for the times she went out of her way to visit Powell River patients staying at St. Paul’s.

Silvia will be dearly missed by her family and friends for her loving, caring personality and her heart of gold.

We are very sad to hear of Silvia’s passing. We lived next door to Silvia and Steve for nearly 20 years, and have many fond memories of her, not the least of which is the many amazing aroma’s coming from her kitchen. She adored our 3 children, and was always very generous with them, doing “little extras” like making up special Halloween treat bags for them. They have fond memories of being invited to watch an old movie or bake with her on a Sunday afternoon. I also have fond memories of her generous heart, she taught me how to make many of her specialties. I still use her hand written recipe (on a St. Paul’s letterhead scrap of paper) for her fantastic cabbage rolls, which I still make every autumn. I couldn’t follow that “a bit of this and lots of that” recipe if I hadn’t spent many afternoons making them with her side by side. I have fond memories of her family when they came to visit as well. Heartfelt sympathy to all of you. May God comfort you in your loss.
