Maria C. (Freitas) Medeiros

June 24, 1953 — June 14, 2021


Maria C. Medeiros, 67, of Hudson, Ma, passed away peacefully at home, with her loving family by her side on Monday, June 14, 2021, after a period of declining health. She was the beloved wife of Daniel Medeiros. They were married for 30 years.

Born in Santa Maria, (Azores) Portugal. Maria found herself a new home, immigrating to Hudson, Ma, in June 1976 where she spent the remaining years of her life. She was a long-time member of the Hudson Portuguese Club, where you could find her enjoying the music and food at many feasts, including the Holy Ghost Festival.

Maria’s passion was spending time with her Family & Friends that she cared so deeply for. Her charismatic personality and witty sense of humor always shined through. She had a love for eating fresh fish and very often anticipated when her brother, José would be calling her saying he had caught fish after his day out by the ocean. Most days, Maria adored her time chatting it up on the phone due to long distance, like a couple schoolgirls with her sister, Ludovina cracking up jokes and making each other laugh.

In addition to her husband Daniel, Maria is survived by her 3 children, Anibal Melo, Betty M. Melo, and Antonio Melo all who reside in Hudson, Ma; 5 grandchildren, Antonio E. Melo, Stephan C. Melo, Aryana Melo, Antonio F. Melo Jr. and José A. Melo; her sister, Ludovina Braga and her husband Manuel Braga of Canada; her brother, José M. Freitas and his wife Fatima Freitas of Hudson, Ma. and many loving nieces, nephews and friends. Along with her parents, she is also predeceased by three siblings, Maria Celestina de Freitas Puim Coelho, Filomena de Freitas and Anibal Freitas.

Maria will be dearly missed by many.

A period of visitation will be held from 9-11am on Saturday, June 19, 2021, at Tighe Hamilton Regional Funeral Home, 50 Central St., Hudson, MA, followed by a procession to Forest Vale Cemetery for an 11:30am Grave Side Committal Service.
