Hudson

Filomena P. (Chaves) Cabral, 93, of Hudson, MA, died on Monday, May 15, 2023, at her home
surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of the late Manuel J. Cabral who died in
2011.
Filomena is survived by her children, Jose Cabral and his partner Maria Carvalho of Hudson, MA, Luis
Cabral of Holliston, MA, Maria Griffin and her husband Paul of Framingham, MA, Genoveva Garcia of
Clinton, MA and Zelia Chaves and her husband Paulo of Hudson, MA. She was predeceased by her son
Antonio Cabral. Filomena also leaves her 12 grandchildren Lisa Neu, Paula Palermo, Paul Cabral,
Angela Azevedo, Michael Cabral, James Colley, Kelly Soares, Christina Cabral, Gennifer Santos, Felicia
Soares, Amanda Sowa, and Samantha Chaves; 21 great grandchildren along with other relatives and
friends.
Filomena was born and raised in Santa Maria, the Azores, Portugal, daughter of the late Jose Felix and
Maria Chaves. She immigrated to the United States in 1968 settling in Hudson, MA. She was employed
by the Thomas Taylor Company in Hudson for many years. She was a member of Saint Michael Parish
in Hudson, MA.
Filomena was truly dedicated to her family. Her passion was cooking and preparing many dishes for
all to enjoy. She loved spending time with her family, especially caring for her 12 grandchildren and
later her 21 great grandchildren. Friday was always a special day to all of them as Filomena would
spend the day baking her “Friday Breads”, a tradition that was never taken for granted. She enjoyed
many hobbies and interests in her spare time and cherished her annual summer trips back to Santa
Maria to visit family and friends. She will always be remembered for her unique loving and caring
spirit, her devotion to the ones she loved and the laughter they all shared.
The family would like to thank those who helped care for Filomena: Lina Faldetta, Olga Cabral, Miauly,
Jane Brodeur, and Luz Zamora.
