Obituary for Anna (da Costa) Surreira

Anna (da Costa) Surreira, 93, of Ludlow, passed away peacefully on May 19, 2014 surrounded by the love of her family. Born in New Bedford, she lived most of her life in Ludlow where she was a faithful communicant of Our Lady of Fatima Church and member of the Portuguese American Citizens Club. Anna worked for many years at Mayfair Mills before her retirement and she loved to crochet and cook, but her greatest joy in life was spending time with her loving family. Anna was the beloved wife of the late Manuel Goncalves Surreira who predeceased her in 1990; a loving mother to John, Diogo, Manuel, Joseph, and David Surreira, all of Ludlow; Mrs. Maria Crowley, of Sturbridge, Mrs. Sally Palatino, of Ludlow, and the late Albert and Abel Surreira; a devoted grandmother of 18, a cherished great-grandmother and great-great grandmother; and also leaves many loving extended family members and dear friends. Anna’s family wishes to express a special thank you to the nurses, aids, and entire staff of Life Care Center of Wilbraham, and to her Personal Healthcare Aid Cheryl, for the exceptional care and devotion that they provided her.
