NEW BEDFORD: Germana Pacheco Teixeira, 92 of New Bedford MA, passed away November 21, 2021, in New Bedford, surrounded by her family. She was the wife of Manuel Cabral Teixeira for 70 years.
Born in Feteira Pequena, in Sao Miguel Acores, daughter of the late Maria Franco de Jesus and Antonio Pacheco Custodio. She lived in New Bedford since 1968, she was often the source of entertainment to her family and friends with her antics, singing and overall good humor, simply known as a “sweet and funny lady”

Germana Rodrigues and husband Tony Rodrigues (Dartmouth) Maria Lourdes and husband Charlie Rodrigues (Acushnet) and Marina Caesar (Marion), ten grandchildren and four great- grandchildren. She was the sister of the late Maria Silva, Jose Custodio and Ernesto Custodio.
She immigrated to the Unites States in 1968 and worked as a stitcher at Calvin Clothing for a brief time. After leaving the stitching industry, she did private work as a seamstress.
She then became a homemaker and dedicated the rest of her working years helping raise her grandchildren that she adored dearly.
Her interests were singing and crocheting and at times she would do simultaneously. Perhaps the best attribute she had was her joyful spirit, funny sense of humor and ability to make
conversation with people. In her eyes and heart, she felt that her greatest accomplishment was her family who she cherished and loved spending time with.
