Maria Teixeira Obituary – Maria J. Teixeira, a beloved member of the Raynham community, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, at the age of 69. She shared a beautiful journey of fifty-two years of marriage with her devoted husband, Valdemar Teixeira.

Later in her career, she earned her Real Estate License and contributed her skills to Century 21. Eventually, she joined the Walmart team in Raynham, marking the last chapter of her working life before retiring in 2021.

Maria’s spiritual connection led her to Saint Anthony Church in Taunton, where she was an active communicant for many years. Her faith was a guiding force in her life, providing solace and purpose. Maria had a passion for gardening, showcasing her green thumb with pride. Her culinary skills were equally impressive, and she found joy in preparing meals for her family, creating cherished moments around the dining table. The heart of her happiness lay in spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, whom she adored.

Teixeira with his significant other, Jessica Kenneally, of Taunton. Maria leaves behind eleven grandchildren: Olivia, Von, Isabella, Xavier, Matthew, Nicholas, Andrew, Jenelle, Jack, Joey, and Cora, as well as four great-grandchildren: Maria, Rosalie, Grady, and Flora. She is also survived by her siblings: Maria Camara of New Bedford, Angelina Correia, Sylvia Mendonca, and Nino Canhas, all of Madeira, Portugal, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Maria was preceded in death by her son, Emanuel Teixeira, whose memory will forever be cherished. A dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, Maria Teixeira’s impact on those around her is immeasurable.
