Ann-Margaret DeSilva (née Bougades)
Ann-Margaret was born on Staten Island to Robert and the late Maryann Bougades. She graduated from Tottenville High School and started working at the Busy Beach Daycare Center. She loved working with children and would later get married and then have two children of her own, sons Shane and Ryan. She was so very proud of them both and thankful that Jesus blessed her with them. Ann-Margaret never asked for much in this life, but for her children to be happy; and she did her best. It’s poetic that a woman as pure, loving, and wonderful around children as Ann-Margaret would earn her wings on National Princess Day and Mickey Mouse’s Birthday.
Ann-Margaret will forever be in the hearts of everyone fortunate enough to be a part of her short yet courageous life. She is survived by her father, Robert, and stepmother, Connie; her sister, Amy; brothers, Robert and Raymond; sons, Shane and Ryan; and her nieces, Kimberly, Kassandra, Gwendolyn, and Kelsey. She is predeceased by her mother, Maryann; her sister, Maryann; and her brothers, Walter and Eric.
