Clotilde (Alves) Magalhaes, 100, of Pawtucket, a woman of boundless love and unwavering faith, passed away peacefully on January 24, 2024, at Miriam Hospital in Providence, RI. Born on April 17, 1923, in Pawtucket, RI, to the late Abel and Balbina (Cabral) Alves, Clotilde's life was a testament to the power of kindness and the strength of family bonds.
As the cherished wife of the late Carlos Magalhaes, Clotilde was a beacon of support and love in her marriage. She was a devoted mother who instilled values of compassion and resilience in her children, Sergio Magalhaes of Portugal, Carlos Magalhaes Jr., of Pawtucket, Olga M. Lopes of Pawtucket, and the late Isabel Dos Anjos. Her role as a matriarch extended to her siblings, including her sister Bemvinda Ferreira of Portugal, and she was revered as an aunt who enriched the lives of her many nieces and nephews with her warmth and guidance.
Clotilde's legacy as a grandmother was marked by the tenderness and wisdom she shared with her six grandchildren and the joy she found in her eleven great-grandchildren. The family feels the absence of her late grandson, Mario Dos Anjos, but takes comfort in knowing they are reunited in eternal peace.
In her lifetime, Clotilde embraced the role of a homemaker with grace and dedication. She created a home filled with laughter, good food, and an open door to anyone in need of care. Her hands were rarely still, as she was always immersed in the loving labor of tending to her family's needs and ensuring that her home was a sanctuary of comfort and solace for all who entered.
Those who knew Clotilde were touched by her loving nature, her kind spirit, and her faith-filled heart. She moved through life with a quiet strength that drew people to her, and she offered unwavering support to those around her. Her faith was the cornerstone of her existence, guiding her through life's challenges and triumphs with grace and humility.
Clotilde's impact on the world was not measured by accolades or achievements but by the countless lives she touched with her generosity and her capacity to love unconditionally. Her presence was a gift to her family and to all who had the privilege of knowing her, and her memory will be cherished and celebrated as a source of inspiration and comfort.
As we bid farewell to Clotilde, we celebrate a life beautifully lived and a spirit that will continue to shine brightly in the hearts of those she loved. Her family takes solace in the knowledge that her kindness has left an indelible mark on this world, and her legacy will live on through the love she so freely gave.
Though Clotilde's journey on this earth has come to a close, the memories and love she shared will forever be woven into the fabric of her family's history. We honor a life that was truly a blessing to us all, and we carry forward the lessons of love and faith that Clotilde embodied every day of her remarkable life.
