Maria de Lourdes de Barros was a big personality to all who knew her.  Smart, funny and always proud of her Portuguese heritage, Maria could strike up an easy conversation with anyone.  She was a great listener, often her grandson’s closest confidant and her granddaughter’s fashion consultant.  A successful career-woman, she made it a priority to make others feel welcome and share her culture whenever possible.  She was a patient and supportive mother and devoted wife.

She is and always will be part of everyone’s life she touched.

Maria de Lourdes de Barros foi uma grande personalidade para todos que a conheceram. Inteligente, divertida e sempre orgulhosa da sua herança portuguesa, Maria conseguia conversar facilmente com qualquer pessoa. Ela era uma grande ouvinte, muitas vezes a confidente mais próxima de seu neto e consultora de moda de sua neta. Uma mulher de carreira de sucesso, ela priorizou fazer os outros se sentirem bem-vindos e compartilhar sua cultura sempre que possível. Ela era uma mãe paciente e solidária e uma esposa dedicada.

Ela é e sempre fará parte da vida de todos que ela tocou.
