November 16, 1927 – July 12, 2021
CARREIRO, Belmira Conceição, born in São Vicente Ferreira,
Ponta Delgada, Azores, passed away peacefully with family
at her side on July 12, 2021 in Vancouver, B.C. at the age of 93.
Predeceased by her husband, Agostinho. Survived by her children,
Manuel (Sara), Maria (Jim), John, Annette (Jim) and Odette,
six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. Belmira was the
youngest of six children and was raised by one of her older sisters.
She immigrated to Vancouver, Canada with three of her children
in 1960 to join her husband who had come to Vancouver three
years prior. She devoted her time to raising her children and
loved to spoil her grandchildren, who were the love of her life.
Belmira also had a special place in her heart for love of animals,
domestic and wild (especially raccoons). She will be sadly
missed by her family, friends and neighbours. Her strength
of spirit, sense of humour and dedication to her family members
and friends will be an inspiration to us forever.
Love you Mamae…
