Anna A. (Azevedo) Nogueira, 99, of Milford, passed away, Saturday, November 26, 2022 at Countryside Healthcare of Milford. She was the loving wife of the late Joseph A. (Tony) Nogueira who passed away in 2012. She was born in Milford, daughter of the late Francisco and Gracinda (Ferreira) Azevedo and was a lifelong Milford resident. She was educated in the Milford schools.
Anna worked for the former Draper Corporation in Hopedale where she was employed as an assembler. In 1950 she left her job and devoted the rest of her life to being a homemaker and mother, raising her family and lovingly helping to care for her grandchildren. She was a wonderfully talented cook and baker, and seeing everyone enjoy a delicious meal was one of her special joys. She was a caring and generous neighbor, and part of a very close-knit neighborhood throughout her life. She was a communicant of the St. Mary’s of the Assumption Church.
She is survived by three sons, Joseph J. Nogueira and his wife Margaret of Mendon, Robert Nogueira of Milford, Kenneth Nogueira and his wife Lynn of Franklin, five grandchildren, Amy Durand, Mark Nogueira, Daniel Nogueira, Thomas Nogueira and Bethany Vilandry, five great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her brothers, Albertino Azevedo, Albert Azevedo and one sister, Mary (Mello) Serrano.
