We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Fletcher Nasevich Funeral Home
It is with profound sadness that the family of Antonia De Carvalho, age 76, announce her peaceful passing on May 16th, 2022 from a brain hemorrhage. She was born on August 22nd, 1945 in Ligacao, Parana, Brazil to her father Paulo and to her mother Emilia. She came from a large family, with several brothers and sisters. She married in 1979, and had a son, Juliano, and a daughter, Ligiane, shortly thereafter, by whom she is survived.
Antonia worked as a nurse for many years, before moving to the United States seeking a better life for her and her family. She later worked at the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral, lovingly preparing lunches for all of the children at the school and making delicious pierogies and other Ukrainian dishes enjoyed by everyone across the community.
Antonia was a devout Catholic, who often attended mass and other religious services with her family and fellow congregants. She studied in a Catholic convent in her younger days and taught catechism to the local children. She was a well-travelled citizen of the world, and spoke four languages.
She was an extremely intelligent, kind, honest and thoughtful woman. Her love for her family and anyone around her was substantial. Anyone that knew her was better off for having done so, and her family will miss her for that, and a thousand more reasons.
Relatives and friends are invited to her viewing on Friday at 9 AM at the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Panakyhda will be sung at 9:45 AM with Requiem Liturgy celebrated at 10 AM. Burial will follow at Our Lady of Sorrows Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery, Langhorne, PA.
