WAPPINGERS FALLS – Maria DeMelo, 88, died at home surrounded by her family on February 20, 2021.

Born in Portugal on May 9, 1932, Maria was the daughter of the late Jose Augusto Fernandes and Ana Maria de Barros Pinto Fernandes. She immigrated to the United States in the early 1960's and moved to Wappingers Falls 40 years ago.

In addition to her parents, Maria was also predeceased by her husband, Nelson DeMelo in 1981; her sister, Maria das Neves Silva; her brother-in-law, Mario Melo; and her sister-in-law, Celeste Alves.

Her family will always remember her as the Matriarch of the family who was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter-in-law, Godmother, aunt, cousin and friend.
