Maria also leaves many loving nieces and nephews in Portugal and Brazil, great-nieces and nephews and their families, many loving extended family members, and dear friends. Close family and friends are asked to attend funeral services on Friday morning at Ludlow Funeral Home. Visiting hours will be from 8:15-9:15 am with services in the funeral home at 9:15 followed by a Liturgy of Christian Burial at 10:00am in Our Lady of Fatima Church.
