Earle Silber

March 12, 1925 ~ June 20, 2022 (age 97)


On June 21, Dr. Earle Silber, a retired longtime psychoanalyst from Chevy Chase, Md., died peacefully at Ingleside at Rock Creek in Washington, where he and his wife, Judy Silber, have lived since late 2020. Born and raised in Baltimore as the seventh of eight siblings, Dr. Silber served in the Navy and later as a neuropsychiatrist in the U.S. Army, and earned degrees at Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland. In addition to his private practice, he held teaching and research positions at the National Institute of Mental Health, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry and the Washington Psychoanalytic Institute. His first wife, Carol Silber, died in 1984. Dr. Silber's many hobbies included playing the flute, drawing, painting, sculpting, needlework and, through the end of his life, a daily crossword puzzle. In addition to his wife Judy and his sister, Evelyn Krohn of Baltimore, he is survived by three sons, Steven Silber of Philadelphia, Rick Silber of Washington and Larry Silber of Minneapolis: a stepdaughter, Jessica Tolmach of Greenwich, Ct., a stepson, Matthew Tolmach, of Washington, D.C.; four daughters-in-law and a son-in-law; nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. A private funeral is planned for Sunday.
