Esmeralda was born and raised in Lisbon.  She married John there on September 15, 1974 and came to the United States in 1975. She worked for many years at the Hilton Hotel in Logan Airport until her retirement. Her family was the center of her life and she has had much more time to devote to them since her retirement, allowing her to become very close to her grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Esmeralda's family has requested that donations in her memory be made to the American Heart Assn.

Please leave messages of condolence for her family on her Tribute Page.
