Obituary for Dores Maria Oliveira (Goncalves)
Passed away on Friday November 10, 2017 at the age of 61. She was born in Lindoso, Portugal to Maria and Manuel Goncalves. She moved to Canada in January 1973. It took moving to Canada, volunteering at the Centro do Espirito Santo and some well-timed miscommunications to meet a nice Portuguese man who would argue over logistics of a church function to later become her husband. Carlos and Dores were married in Ottawa at Notre Dame Cathedral on June 23, 1984. Dores worked at various senior residences including Stonehaven Manor where she loved caring for, talking with, and occasionally cooking some of her famous recipes for the residents in her care. Dores was an incredible cook, a trait likely passed down to her from her father who himself was a chef in Portugal. She enjoyed entertaining, sharing stories, “browsing” the stores for hours on end, and was the life of the party wherever she went. She was predeceased by her father Manuel and her beloved furbabies DJ, Peanut, Cruz, and Tommy. She is survived by her husband of 33 years, Carlos, mother Maria Goncalves, children Cory, Christopher (wife Ashley), sisters Ana Rosa (husband Manuel and son Kenny) Ribeiro and Isaura (husband Agostinho) Cerqueira.
