Julia Da Silva Vieira of Seekonk passed away on July 22, 2023. Born in Portugal, she was the daughter of Jose Vieira and Beatriz da Silva Horta. Julia was the beloved wife of the late Francisco Da Silva Borges. She will be deeply missed by her daughter, Connie McNally.
As a young girl who grew up in São Miguel Azores, she loved to work, helping her mom in the kitchen cooking and helping raise her siblings, she also loved helping her dad, my grandfather with the garden, Mom had a green thumb, she could turn one leaf into a plant. Mom never liked school, she graduated from 11th grade her passion for fashion landed her a job with a famous fashion designer. Mom was very independent, she loved working and making a living. Mom met Dad at a feast in church, her story goes, he would watch her from afar and smile at her. At 27 they got married, they were just a few months apart, and together they raised three children. Mom always said the best time was when we were little, she wouldn't let a fly land on us. Both mom and dad were amazing parents. At age 49 dad passed away, it was devastating for her sponsored by her sister, she came to America to start a new life, giving her children the opportunity for a better life. It was a full year before we could come under her sponsorship since we were over the age of eighteen, it wasn't easy for her to make this bold move but she did it. Mom and I were inseparable, we would go shopping, try on clothes, and have a few laughs, Mom loved pink, most of her clothes are pink, we nicknamed her Barbie. Mom lived with me for twenty-four years, being close to a church, she would take daily walks to the church grounds and speak with Mary, she was a devoted catholic and very proud of it. She would watch EWTN on tv every day, she also loved the old good movies her favorites were The Waltons and Little House On The Prairie. Mom would come with my husband and I on yearly vacations to Florida in our motorhome and our three cats, as my husband used to say he wouldn't have it any other way. Mom left a big void, she will be forever missed by me.
