Lourdes was born on October 13th, 1923 in the town of Machico on the beautiful island of Madeira. Her father was a member of the National Guard of Portugal serving in Madeira when he met the beautiful Maria. Including Lourdes, they had sons, Antonio Jr. and Manuel, and two more daughters, Gabriela and Grace.

Lourdes was educated in Portugal and travelled throughout Europe as a young woman. She returned to her hometown of Machico to run her father’s mercantile and was well-known for her business sense and generosity.

She immigrated to Canada in 1965 and lived with her sister,Gabriela, and brother-in-law, Oscar, and their children, Joe and Elizabeth. Her brother, Manuel, also lived in Toronto with his wife, Almerinda, and their daughters, Evone and Michelle. Lourdes enjoyed being reunited with her family and often helped with preparations for big family gatherings. Lourdes especially enjoyed the arrival of the next generation of babies: Adam, Erin, Robbie, Catie, Nicolas, Alexa and Cristina. Her greatest sadness was losing her baby brother, Manuel, to cancer in 1997.

Lourdes loved starting her day with a strong coffee and a soft-boiled egg and sneaking some chocolate when no one was looking. She loved reading, travelling, needlepoint and embroidery.
