Born in Obidos, Portugal, daughter of the late Joao and Maria (Antonio) Domingos, she immigrated to Chicopee in 1952 at the age of 3, and was a 1968 graduate of Chicopee High School.  She later moved to Ludlow where she settled to raise her family. Alda was a hairdresser at Pierre Andre‘s Salon for many years, and more recently worked in the Town of Ludlow treasurer’s office from where she retired. She was a member of the Ludlow Lodge of Elks, and in her spare time, she loved camping and enjoyed gardening; but her greatest joy in life was spending time with her beloved family, especially her grandchildren.
