Maria immigrated from Sao Miguel in April of 1974.

She devoted her life here raising all of her grandchildren and one great grandchild, who were a source of great pride to her.
In addition to her family, she was very devoted to her faith and God.

Maria always put a smile on everyone's face and made anyone who met her feel loved and welcome. She would do anything to have fun with her kids and her grandkids. She enjoyed sitting by a fire, going to festas and vacationing with her family. She was a great cook, and made the best chicken soup (canjinha). She loved animals and her cat Junquilho.

She will be missed by all who knew her.
