Obituary for Maria Aurora (Fernandes) Bernardo

Maria Aurora (Fernandes) Bernardo, 86, of Indian Orchard, passed away peacefully at home on January 4, 2019. Born in Ratoeira, Portugal, daughter of the late Antonio and Maria (DaSilva) Fernandes, she resided for a short time in Angola, where she began her family. She then immigrated to Ludlow in 1974, and eventually settled in Indian Orchard in 1976. Maria Aurora worked for many years at Chicopee Undergarment from where she retired and was also a devoted communicant of Our Lady of Fatima Church. She will be remembered for her generosity, as she always shared her talents of cooking, sewing, crocheting, and gardening with those she loved; but her greatest joy in life was devoting and spending her time with her beloved family. Maria Aurora was the loving mother to Joao “John” Bernardo and wife Carol, and Rodolfo “Rudy” Bernardo and wife Odete, all of Ludlow; a cherished grandmother to Joao, Alex, Adam, and Vanessa Bernardo; a dear sister to Elia Cardoza, of Portugal; and also leaves her special friend Amelia Ribeiro and her family, whom she loved dearly like a daughter; as well as many loving extended family members; and dear friends. Visiting Hours for Aurora will be held on Tuesday Jan 8th from 4:00-7:00pm in Ludlow Funeral Home. Funeral services are on Wednesday, January 9th at 9:00am from the funeral home with Liturgy of Christian Burial at 10:00am in Our Lady of Fatima Church followed by burial in Island Pond Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to St Jude's Children's Research Hospital (stjude.org)
