Anna’s family, whom she treasured dearly, were truly the essence of her life. She and her late husband loved spending time in Maine and on Cape Cod and following his death, she continued these trips and memories with her children. She loved laughing, coloring, maintaining a close relationship with her brothers and will always be remembered for the special place held dearly in her heart for her cats.
She is survived by her devoted children: Lisa M. Gonsalves, PhD and her married spouse Diane Pullen of Jamaica Plain, Kim M. Gonsalves-Leonard and her partner Jorge Medina of Stoughton and Edward S. Gonsalves, Jr. and his wife Donna of Norton. She was the cherished grandmother of Stephen A. Gonsalves of Norton and Jasmine C. Pullen and Jess M. Pullen, both of Jamaica Plain. She was the dear sister of John Ramos and his wife Gerry of Somerset, Armande Ramos and his wife Sue of Fall River, the late Gloria Mitchell and is also survived by her loving nieces and nephews.
