Mary T. VasconcelosVasconcelos, Mary T. (Vieira) of Woburn, passed away on April 28, 2024, at the age of 82 surrounded by her loving family.

Mary was born in Cambridge, MA to proud parents Joseph and Mary (Mamie) Viera on Thanksgiving Day.  She would spend nearly 50+ years living in Cambridge on Marney Street creating wonderful memories.  It was while living in Cambridge that Mary met the love of her life while attending an event and hearing him sing. They were happily married for almost 59 years.  Family was everything to Mary.  She gave birth to two wonderful Children that never left her side, even at the end.  Mary loved her children, but her grandchildren and great grandchildren meant the world to her. She shared a special bond with her grandchildren, Melissa, and Victor, who would describe her as their best friend.  Her great-grandchildren, Kai and Caden, were the joy of their Avozinha.  The love she had for them gave her the strength she needed at the end.  

In addition to her family what mattered most to Mary was her devotion and her culture. She was very proud of her Portuguese Heritage.  She enjoyed volunteering and attending the dinners of the local organization. Even though she suffered for so long she never lost her faith.  She was a devout Catholic and her love of God and the Holy Ghost was with her through even the most challenging times.  

Although Mary was known for her big heart she will always be remembered for her sense of style.  She always looked put together and relished when people complimented her. She was an avid Boston Sports fan and would often gripe when The Bruins and Celtics were on at the same time. Mary’s sense of humor would bring light to even the darkest times.  She sometimes had a little too much Sass but it’s what made us love her.   

Mary joined the Portuguese-American Civic League at the age of 16 years old.  She was also a member of the Holy Ghost Committee. Mary and Victor were past Chairman (Mordomos) of the Holy Ghost Committee of the Portuguese-American Civic League seven times. Mary was devoted to the Holy Spirit and her organizations.  

Mary will be deeply missed by all who loved her.  She was the pillar of her Family, and this has left a massive loss in everyone’s life.

She was the devoted wife of Victor M. Vasconcelos, loving mother of Mary Theresa Carvalho and Joseph Jordan Vasconcelos, cherished grandmother of Melissa V. Rego, Victor V. Carvalho and his wife Shana, adored great-grandmother of Kai J. Carvalho and Caden R. Carvalho.  

Mary is also survived by her beloved nieces, nephews, godchildren, and many other loving relatives and friends.
