She was the beloved wife of 39 years of the late Jacinto Rodrigues.

Maria was born in Sao Miguel, Azores, the daughter of the late Manuel and Maria dos Anjos Patricio.  She immigrated to the United States at the age of 17 and worked at several factories including Corcoran Shoe before devoting herself to raising her children. 

Maria was quiet, gentle, and a remarkably strong woman.  She was a communicant of Saint Anthony’s Church with an unwavering faith.  She enjoyed gardening, knitting, shopping, traveling with her children and grandchildren, and setting up her elaborate Christmas nativity display.  Her famous sweet bread was baked with love and enjoyed by many.  Most of all Maria cherished time spent with her family, especially her grandchildren who she helped care for.  

Maria is survived by her loving children; Natalie Costa and husband Steven, Jesse Rodrigues and wife Elise, and Sandra Serpa and husband Denio, all of Taunton. She was the grandmother of Trevor Costa, Madelyn and Jesse Rodrigues, and Gabriel and Angelina Serpa. She was also the sister of the late Maria Almeida and aunt to many nieces and nephews.
