Rosa, Maria Manuela (Loureiro) of Arlington, passed away on September 12, 2023, at age 94 surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on 10/10/1928 to the late Joaquin and Elzira Loureiro in Quintela de Azurara, Portugal.  

Devoted wife of the late Mario Augusto Rosa. They were married and hopelessly in love for over 55 years.  

Loving mother of Vera L. Rosa Romanelli and her husband Michael, Regina C. Rosa Webber and her husband David.  

Cherished grandmother (Vovo) of Nicholas M. Romanelli and his wife Jaime, and Julia A. Romanelli.

Also survived by nieces, nephews, and many other loving relatives and friends.  

Manuela’s life was dedicated to caring for others. Initially, raising her own two children while she worked “piece work” in a factory as a seamstress. Then caring for her parents for many years who lived with her. She also helped to raise her two grandchildren, which were the “loves of her life”  All this while being a very involved sister within the family.  Somehow, she managed to find time to be an amazing cook!  Her hobbies were gardening, crocheting/needlepoint, word searches and reading.
