Maria M. “Sadie” Monteiro, 94, of Marion, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Wednesday, February 6, 2013. She was the wife of the late Manuel D. Monteiro, Sr.
Maria was born in Havana, Cuba, but Marion is where she has called home since the early 1950’s. What mattered most to Maria was her family, friends and her community. Despite the many hats she wore, it was her role as a mother that mattered most to her.
She is survived by her son, Manuel Monteiro and his wife Jane of Marion; her grandchildren, Marcus and his wife Deborah of Fall River, Vanessa Monteiro and her partner Darren King and Alexander Monteiro and his partner Meaghan Crook all of Brooklyn, NY; her great grandson, Xavier as well as many “adopted” children and grandchildren.
