It is with deep sorrow that we mourn the passing of Maria Odette Alves on January 1, 2023. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Oscar Alves and daughters, Helen (Greg) and Joyce (Tony); four grandchildren, Michael, Daniella, Roberto and Ricardo. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and was loved and will be missed by many, including her sister, Eleuteria, nieces, nephews and all of her family. She loved her family fiercely and would defend them at any cost. She was happiest when she was surrounded by her family and friends. She is now resting with God in heaven, her parents and her siblings, Juvenal and Alberto. May she rest in Peace and may her memory be eternal.
