TAUNTON-Maria Jorge Moitoso, 78, passed away on December 13, 2022 at the Life Care Center of Raynham. She was the loving wife of the late Jose D. Moitoso, with whom she shared 55 years of marriage.
Maria was born in Faial, Azores and was the daughter of the late Jose Peixoto and Josefina (Garcia) Peixoto.
Maria was employed with the Foxboro Company for many years until her retirement and was a longtime communicant of Annunciation of the Lord Church. A woman of deep faith, Maria enjoyed watching her novellas and daily mass on television and prayed her rosary daily. Faith and family came above all else to Maria and she enjoyed the many wonderful summers spent at the cottage on Cape Cod and almost yearly trips to the Azores to visit her relatives. She will be remembered fondly by those who knew her best as a kind hearted and strong woman who cherished the time she spent with her loved ones, especially her grandchildren.
Maria is survived by her children, Gina M. Roberts and her husband Michael of Taunton and Paul G. Moitoso and his wife Lisa of Assonet; grandchildren, Nicholas, Hannah and her husband Scott Sylvester, Sarah, Leah and Gavin and great grandson, Scott M. Sylvester; siblings, Zulmiria Matos and her husband Jose of the Azores, Balbina Moitoso and her husband Joseph of Taunton; Idalina Dutra and her husband Jose of the Azores and Jose G. Peixoto and his wife Maria of Taunton and many nieces and nephews.
