Erli DeSouza, 52

Hudson – Erli (Pereira) DeSouza, 52, of Hudson, passed away Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012, in her home with her family, after a two-year battle with cancer.

Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil to the late Francisca and Joao Pereira, she leaves behind her soul mate and husband of 27 amazing years, Alvandir (Al) DeSouza, and her two children, Patrick DeSouza, age 20, and Andressa DeSouza, age 25. She also leaves behind 12 brothers and sisters, four sister-in-laws, her mother and father-in-law, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

A hardworking and dedicated employee, she gave 10, wonderful years to the Staples, Inc. legal department in Framingham, where her co-workers and colleagues have become family.

A lover of the outdoors and anything involving family, she lived for a day out in the sun surrounded by those who loved her most. She will always be remembered as the beautiful, charismatic, and irreplaceable woman, wife, and mother that we all knew her to be.

  1. I worked with Erli for almost 10 years at Staples. She was a hard worker who was smart, dedicated and a lot of fun. Erli was a proud mother and a devoted wife to Al. They would come together to Staples’ social functions and have a great time. Erli worked on so many charitable projects at Staples to help others less fortunate. She had a huge heart and made all of us better people. We already miss her terribly. She will be long remembered here.
