Maduro was born to Rudolph
Sille and Othelia Crawford
Dunimit on the island of St.
Thomas on Tuesday, Decem-
ber 27, 1898. She attended
the Catholic School and im-
mediately following comple-
tion of her formal educational training, she met her lifemate, the
youthful Joseph Maduro. On Wednesday, November 17, 1915,
they were joined in holy wedlock and from this union they were
blessed with two daughters and two sons.
Azalia and Joe enjoyed a happy life together in a marital union that
lasted for more than fifty-five years, until his demise on Monday,
April 19, 1971, following a brief illness. Joe served in the United
States Navy as a Bandsman, while Miss Azie, as she was affection-
ately called by her many customers and friends, remained at home
and managed the family's grocery business and raised the children to
Miss Azie was altruistic, affable and kind. Her store was a haven
for many of her faithful customers, neighbors and friends who came
in search of her advice and guidance. Her motherly counselling was
readily available to all who indicated a need for it, and this was
known to every "Savanero," for she had a beautiful way of letting all
know that she loved them equally. The greatest intensity of her love,
however, was understandably imparted to all of the members of her
family which was sustained to the very end.
On Thursday, March 4, 1982, Azalia Evangeline Sille Maduro depart-
ed this life just as she had lived quietly.
May she rest in peace.
