It is with great sadness the family wishes to announce the peaceful passing of Zulmira Afonso on January 24th 2022 at the age of 81, surrounded by her loving family. Mother to Adelinda Maria Afonso Montague (Steven Joseph Montague) and proud grandmother (Vovo) to David and Daniella Montague, whom she adored. Mira is now in the beloved arms of her loving husband Camilo (1986). Sister to Albertina (Manuel Da Costa), and predeceased by her sister Maria and brother-in-law Antonio Rodrigues, brother-in-law Manuel DaSilva (Francelina), and brother and sister-in-law Manuel and Guillermina Afonso. Lovingly, she is remembered by her many nieces, nephews, and godchildren. Mira dedicated her life to the church and her family. She was an active member of St. Alfred’s Women’s League volunteering at the annual bazaar and other functions. Mira was very devoted to Our Lady of Fatima, as she was born and raised in Portugal, where she made her annual trips to the Basilica.
