Zulmira H. Lopes

Zulmira Lopes, 98, passed away on Thursday, April 16, 2020 at Orchard View Manor. She was the loving wife of the late Luis Lopes and lived her life with a vibrant spirit, a bright smile, and great kindness.

Born in Faial, Azores, she was the daughter of the late Manuel Silveira da Rosa and Teresa de Jesus Faria. Zulmira immigrated to the U.S. in 1960 and lived the majority of her life in Pawtucket, RI. Zulmira worked at Central Braid in Central Falls for over 30 years as both a rug maker and supervisor. Her greatest joy came from being with friends and family.  She was a talented cook, seamstress, and a wonderful child care provider.

Zulmira was the sister of the late Maria da Silva, Carlos da Rosa, Jose da Rosa, Elvira Teixeira, and Manuel da Rosa. Tia Zulmira leaves behind many nieces and nephews who all adored her, especially Helen Silva who was her caretaker in the final years of her life.  She is also remembered by the many she cared for as children with patience and love.

Her funeral services will be private. A celebration of her life will be planned for a future date. Contributions to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, at 200 Niantic Ave., Providence, RI 02908 in her memory would be greatly appreciated.

Due to the current coronavirus crisis, her funeral services are private. Friends and family are invited to view a live video stream here of the funeral service on Monday, April 20, 2020 at 10:00 AM.
