Maria F. (Santos) Faria

1940 - 2017



Maria F. (Santos) Faria, a resident of Malden who had previously lived in Cambridge and Somerville, passed away on Monday, June 5, 2017, after a lengthy illness. Maria was born and raised on the island of Pico, in the Azores. She married her sweetheart, Manuel D. Faria, in April of 1970, and soon the couple moved to the Boston area where they raised their family. Maria and Manuel shared 45 years of marriage together until his passing in 2015. Maria had worked in a curtain warehouse, assisting with the stocking of goods until a disability forced her early retirement. She was a dedicated member of St. Anthony’s in Cambridge. She loved her church and was active with the prayer groups that met there. She also enjoyed attending MAPS events, a Portuguese community group, where she would meet with friends and play games. Primarily though, she was a dedicated wife and mother, who loved spending time with her family.

She is survived by her children, Ilda F. Faria of Malden, Nelson N. Faria of Malden, her siblings, Adelina Luis of Somerville, Isaura Matos of Faria, Vital Santos of Somerville, Antonio Rodrigues of Stoneham, and Jose Santos of Cambridge, and her grandchildren, Noah, Nicholas, and Christopher.

Maria was preceded in death by her husband, Manuel.
