Maria Costa, 89

Hudson – Maria de Lourdes Lourenco Costa was born July 29, 1922 in Guarda, Portugal. She came to the U.S.A. in April 1946 and resided in Hudson most of her life.

She had worked as an electronic assembly worker until retirement. She and her husband, Antonio, moved to Danville, Calif. just three years ago.

Ultimately, Maria suffered complications due to congestive heart failure and entered eternal life May 28, 2012, at the age of 89, just two months before her 90th birthday.

There was a graveside service presided by her nephew and godchild, The Very Reverend Joseph Rodrigues, SDS, at St. Michael's Cemetery in Livermore, Calif.

Maria's mother and father were Marcelino and Emilia Lourenco. Her brothers and sisters are Manuel, Clara, Jose, and Maria dos Anjos. She had been married to her beloved husband, Antonio Costa, who died just 6 months before her, for 65 years. She is survived by her beloved son, Paul, and daughter-in-law Sue, and step-granddaughter Alyson. She also has a granddaughter, Shannon, and a great-granddaughter, Abigail.

Maria's greatest source of enjoyment was simply being with family. With a ready smile, she enjoyed good food, good conversation, and good joke telling followed by her infectious laughter. She was a simple, loving, and strong-willed woman who loved life. Even when the chips were down she would always say, “We have to keep going!” Keep on going, Maria… to your heavenly home!
