Family and friends will honor and remember Marizinha's life by gathering for calling hours Tuesday, July 31, from 5 to 8 p.m., at Heald & Chiampa Funeral Directors ~ The Sumner House, 5 Church Road, On the Common, Shrewsbury Center, and again Wedneasday, Aug. 1, at 8:45 a.m., before leaving in procession to Saint Stephen's Church, 357 Grafton St., Worcester, where her funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Rev. John Devin, C.Ss.R., Archdiocesan Brazilian Apostolate of Boston, will celebrate. Burial will follow in Mountain View Cemetery.
