She was formerly employed as a seamstress at Riverside MFG., until her retirement. Eduarda was a passionate parishioner of the Immaculate Conception Church, a member of the Portuguese Prayer Group of her Parish,  Our Lady of Fatima Keepers Group, and the Amalgamated Union.

She is survived by her loving husband Manuel of New Bedford, two sons Dennis and his wife Tammy, Keith and his wife Jennifer, both of New Bedford, three grandchildren Amy, Owen and Camden, two sisters Maria Dos Anjos Santos and her husband Jose, and Valentina Miguel, a sister-in-law Maria Farpea and loving nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was the mother of the late Michelle Sousa, sister of the late Dionisio Oliveira.
