Hudson – Margaret M. (Moran) Machado, 86, of Hudson, died at her home, surrounded by her family, Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012. She was predeceased by her late husband Edward Machado, spending 21years with the love of her life until his untimely passing in 1983.
She is survived by her three sons, Edward Machado and wife Sheryl Machado of Elizabeth, Colorado; John P. Machado, of Hudson; and James P. Machado. She is also survived by her three loving granddaughters, Lindsey, Lauren and London Machado, all from Colorado; two sisters, Barbara O’Malley of Concord, and Mary Warner of Stuart, Florida; and many nieces and nephews.
Margaret was born and raised in Clinton, daughter of the late Patrick and Helen (Hastings) Moran. She attended local schools and was a graduate of Clinton High School. She has resided in Hudson since 1962, and was a member of the former Christ the King Parish in Hudson and currently a member of Saint Michael's Parish in Hudson.
Together, Margaret and Ed raised three sons, with Margaret selflessly devoting all her attentions to her family and to raising her boys. She is particularly remembered for her generous and giving spirit to not only her own children, but to her nine local nieces and nephews, who were also showered with her loving care all the way through adulthood.
Her charities were always remembered, in particular the Maryknoll Missionaries, which was her dearest. Margaret will be remembered for many things too many to count, but it is her laughter and light that will be missed most of all.
A funeral Mass will be celebrated Saturday, Dec. 1, at 9:00 a.m., in Saint Michael's Church, 21 Manning St., Hudson. Burial will follow in Saint Michael's Cemetery, Hudson. Family and friends may attend calling hours Friday, Nov. 30, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m., at the Tighe-Hamilton Funeral Home, 50 Central St., Hudson.
