Obituary for Silvia Aurora Derat (Trevino)

Silvia Aurora Derat (nee Treviño) passed away peacefully after brief hospitalization on May 8, 2020 with her daughter by her side. A retired school teacher, Silvia lived a life dedicated to her students, family and laughter. She loved to play the piano, enjoy nature and cook. She was 73 years old. She leaves behind the love of her life, J.L. Derat (aka “Beto”), who always ensured she felt happiness and love. She is survived by her daughters, Leslie (and Jim), Lindsay (and Ian) and her cherished grandchildren, Pilar and Lochlan. Loving sister of Gloria, Romelia, Argelia, Leticia, Amilcar, Cristian, Roldan, Iscandar and Bruni; and daughter to Aurora and Manuel of Monterrey, Mexico. Loving aunt to Sigfrido, Delfin, Vivian and Xavier, Alicia and Christina, Sonia, Kevin and Stefan.

Silvia believed living life “in the now”. She enjoyed simplicity and was non-judgmental. She was kind hearted and her spirit will live on in all of us. We miss and love her and look forward to getting together as a family to celebrate what we have lost.
