Tributes for

Salvi, Irene B.

Irene Barbara Salvi
Age 90, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt passed away on Thursday, May 25, 2017 from complications of a stroke.
Irene was born and raised in San Francisco, attended St. Anne's grade school in the Sunset and was proud to be part of the first 4 year graduating class of Lincoln High School. She was a 54 year Millbrae resident and parishioner of St. Dunstan Catholic Church where she was involved in ministries including Faith Formation principal and many years teaching CCD. She enjoyed her work with the Friends of the Millbrae Library which was a complement to her love of reading and The Primrose thrift shop that gave its profits to Catholic Charities.
She met the love of her life, Steve, on a YMI/YLI cross country train trip in 1947 and they were married a year later. They enjoyed 53 years of love and adventures worldwide and across the U.S. together before Steve died in 2002. She reveled in simple pleasures: singing favorite old songs, swimming with grandchildren or even the dolphins, and gatherings with family and friends.
She is survived by her children Anne Warner (Jim), Vince (Sara), Mark and Dolores Schriever (John), as well as her brothers Mike Pearce (Andrea) and Don. She was blessed with 7 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Steve and son Stephen, as well as her parents Frank and Irene Pearce.
We would like to thank Silverado At Home and especially Adriana and Jackie for their love and care for mom as well as Silverado Belmont Hills for their help in caring for mom.
Family and friends may visit on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at 2:00 PM with a Vigil Service at 4:00 PM at the Chapel of the Highlands, 194 Millwood Drive in Millbrae. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, June 5, 2017 at 11:00 AM at St. Dunstan Catholic Church, 1133 Broadway in Millbrae. Interment to follow at the Italian Cemetery in Colma.
