Friends wishing to remember her may make donations to the Ann Moyer Silva account at the Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation (

Ann’s family chose this foundation because they know how rewarding it was for Ann to help children with terminal illness realize their wishes and dreams.

Her yard and home were filled with the other love in her life … hundreds of teddy bears.

In her honor, the family donated Ann’s bear collection to Shriner’s Hospital and shelters for women and children.
