Margarida Dulce (Fidalgo) Amado

Margarida Dulce (Fidalgo) Amado, age 86, passed away peacefully on November 20, 2023, at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Boston. She was the loving wife to the late Antonio Amado before his untimely passing in 1970. Born in Fogo, Cape Verde, she was the daughter to the late Balbina Goncalves and Americo Fidalgo. She migrated to the United States in 1977 and began working at The Sheraton Hotel in Boston for 10 years. She then moved to Stoughton in 1990, becoming a longtime resident. She was very devoted to her faith and religion, taking many religious trips throughout her life to, Fatima, Jerusalem, and Cape Verde. She was a longtime participant at Bom Dia Adult Day Health Center in Stoughton, where she joined in 2014, continuing to socialize within the community until June of this year. She started a prayer group at the center, and was well liked within her social circle, making many friends along the way. She was also active at Immaculate Conception Church in Stoughton. She loved going on cruises with her family and friends, always taking pictures to document the memories she experienced. She enjoyed cooking homemade meals, tending to her garden, and always ensuring her yard was clean and tidy in appearance. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and will be greatly missed.

Margarida is survived by her children, Eunice Monteiro and her husband Antonio of Easton, Nelson Amado of Randolph, Bartolomeu Amado of Randolph and Maria Amado-Cardoso and her husband Jose Afro Cardoso of Stoughton.
