Venulda "Zinha" (Evora) DeAlmeida, 80, of New Bedford passed away on Sunday February 14, 2021. She was the loving wife of the late Emanuel A. DeAlmeida, who passed away December 14, 2020; they had been married for 53 years. Zinha was born in Sao Vincente, Cabo Verde but lived in New Bedford for many years. She was the daughter of the late Olivia Carvalho.
She deeply loved her husband “Maney,” and together they made a joyful couple. Her life focus was her family which was to support them and set a good example for her grandchildren.
Zinha was never without a smile and if something was not working whether it be clothes, a broken cup, or an odd item her quote would be "I'll fix it". She is loved by many nieces and nephews and will be truly missed. She is the perfect example of "selflessness" in action and heart.
She is survived by her daughter, Lena Gomes and her husband; two grandchildren, Siris and Kiana Gomes, all of Dartmouth; her sisters, Fatima and ZuZu and her brother, Tomas.
Her Funeral Service will be held on Monday February 22, 2021 at 11:30 AM at the Saunders-Dwyer Home for Funerals, 495 Park St, New Bedford, with visiting hours prior from 9:30AM to 11:30 AM.
