Obituary for Darah DeSilva Bradford

GREENSBORO: Darah DeSilva Bradford, 53, lost her hard fought battle with cancer on September 16, 2017 at Duke University Hospital. Wife, mother, and friend, she knew what she wanted and never backed down. She worked hard at everything she did and gave her all to everyone around her. Darah always placed family first, joined every committee at her kids schools, went to every game either home or away. Darah was a fierce warrior not to be deterred by anyone or anything.
Darah is survived by her husband, Tom and children Kelsey, Cameron and Mackenzie; and by her father, Robert DeSilva, sister Ainsley Bishop and brothers Robert Jr. and David DeSilva. She was preceded in death by her mother, Bonnie DeSilva. Darah was the rock and heart of her family. If she could, she would tell us not to cry, not to feel sorry for her. She is no longer in pain and for that we are all grateful. We love you Darah and if you don’t mind too much, we may shed a tear for you. We will never forget you and you will live in our hearts and our minds throughout our lives.
The family will be hosting a celebration of Darah’s life at Tom and Darah’s home in Greensboro on Friday 9/22 from 6-9pm. The family extends their heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Duke Oncology ward. If so inclined, please send donations to Duke Cancer Institute @
The family is being assisted by Clements Funeral Service, Inc. in Durham. Online condolences may be made at
