Margarida Pinto Quelha, age 86, departed this world suddenly on December 17, 2020 in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. The family is comforted that Margarida is now reunited with her late husband Manuel, with whom she enjoyed over 35 years of marriage and with her beloved son, Antonio, who departed this world at the tender age of seven.

She was the cherished mother to three daughters, Iva Natalia de Almeida, Maria Cidalia Quelha Mendoza, and Eugenia Quelha McAvoy. She was an adored Avozinha to her eight grandchildren, Daniel de Almeida, Grabriel de Almeida, David de Almeida, Halia McAvoy, Alessio McAvoy, Liam McAvoy, Adrian Mendoza, and Eliana Mendoza, and her two great grandchildren, Liane and Raphael de Almeida. She is survived by five loving siblings, loving nephews and nieces, many other loving relatives, and great friends.

Margarida was a devoted Christian and a portrait of courage and strength. She spent much of her life helping others, often giving of her time, resources, and prayers. She never complained and rarely sought out material things. She was the keeper of secrets and the kind of person friends reached out to when faced with difficult life situations. We will miss our comforter-in-chief and the one many of us relied upon for her infinite wisdom. She touched many lives and will be eternally loved and missed.   


Funeral services and interment will be private. In lieu of flowers please consider making donations in Margarida's memory to your local food bank or the Greater Boston Food Bank.
