Obituary for Silma H. Dowden

Silma Hortensia Dowden, a loving mother and grandmother, sister, aunt, sister-in-law, friend and so much more to many whose life she touched, passed away May 17, 2019 at age 63.

Silma was born to William and Adelaida on August 1, 1955, in Colón, Panama. She immigrated to the United States in 1976 and began pursuing her dreams. She married Curll Dowden Sr. in 1978, and they lived together in Houston, Texas.

Silma is survived by siblings, Orlando and Reynaldo Sealey, of Panama. She is preceded in death by sibling, Mario Sealey of Panama. She leaves as her legacy two children, Curll Dowden Jr. and Kurllenne Martin; their spouses Alisa Franklin and Eric Martin II; along with five grandchildren, Taylor Dowden, Eric “Trey” Martin III, Kya Martin, Aslan Dowden and Raiden Dowden. Her children remember her as a fiercely independent, headstrong, and proud matriarch who loved her family and friends with all her heart and soul.

Silma was employed as a nurse at several medical clinics throughout the Houston area until she resigned in 2017. She was very passionate about helping people and giving of herself unconditionally.

Silma was a resident for the last six months at the Quality Living Assisted Living Community in Stafford, Texas. Many thanks from the family to all her caregivers there, and the love and friendship they provided. Thanks, as well to all the friends and extended family members who visited her, cooked for her, and prayed for her during her time there.
