Maria was born & raised in St. Michael, Azores. She came to the United States in 1957 with her family and settled in East Cambridge. Maria was a hard-working woman who always did what she could for her family. She was a dedicated wife & mother, first and foremost. She was a gifted seamstress and made most her children’s outfits, especially for the holidays & special events. She would make many things for her family, friends and neighbors. It was something she did throughout her entire life. Maria worked at Fenton Shoe for approximately 10 years before becoming an LPN at Youville Hospital in Cambridge, for 5 years. As her family became larger, Maria stayed home to raise her children. She later returned to the workforce and became a Laboratory Assistant at Harvard University, before she retired. Loving & caring for her family is where Maria’s heart was most filled with joy. She was the epitome of what a “Mother” & “Nana” is. Maria will be missed & remembered and will always be loved.
