Maria (Mendonca) Pedro

Maria (Mendonca) Pedro, 87, died Friday, October 14, 2022, at her home, after a long period of declining health. Born in Caveira on the island of Flores in the Azores, Portugal, she was the daughter of the late Adelina and Francisco Mendonca. She was raised and educated in Caveira. In January of 1957, she married Jose Pedro in Caveira, and together they enjoyed over 53 years of marriage and raised 6 children, before his death in 2010. In 1963, Maria came to the United States with her husband and young family and settled in Stoughton. She worked as an Electronics Assembler at several area businesses for many years.  A longtime communicant of Immaculate Conception Church in Stoughton, she was a member of the Holy Ghost Society at Club Luis de Camoes in Stoughton. Maria was skilled at crocheting and would give her crocheted blankets and scarves as Christmas gifts to her children and grandchildren every year. She was a devoted friend to many and was known as the “Queen of Malassadas” for her cooking and always insisted that neither family nor friends leave her house hungry. Above all, Maria cherished her time surrounded by her large beloved family.
