It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Olivia Machado on May 26, 2021 at the age of 95.

Olivia is now reunited with her husband Joao (predeceased 1993) and her son Fernando (predeceased 2008).  Dear mother to Maria Jose (Jose Manuel), Eugenia (Garey) and John Carlos.  Loving Vavo to Cindy (Giulio), Jennifer (Adrian), Leslie (Steve), Shannon (Elena), Stephen (Kyna) and Christopher (Jacqueline).  Proud great-grandmother to Joshua, Sophia, Michael, Benjamin, Nathan, Layla, Julian, Olivia and Steven Jr.

Olivia was born in Arrifes, Sao Miguel, Portugal and immigrated to Canada with her family to make a better life.  She settled in Toronto and raised her family.  She was loved by all who met her, as she was kind, compassionate and had a great sense of humor; she made sure everyone was cherished and treated as if they were family.  She was a devout catholic who was strong in her faith for God and the Holy mother.  She was a long time parishioner of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and was loved by the community.

Olivia will be forever loved, deeply missed and remembered in all our hearts by her family and friends.

We first met this lovely lady while neighbours on Kensington in Toronto in the late 60's. We lost contact when we moved out of the area in 1970, but met again years later through her daughter MaryJo. She was a sweet and kind lady, and will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Rest in peace Snra. Olivia,. Our condolences and hugs to all the family.
