Alice (Pacheco) Semiao, 91, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 7, 2012 after a courageous fight against cancer. Alice was the devoted wife of the late Manuel G. Semiao, Jr., loving mother to Ron Semiao of Farmington, CT and loving mother-in-law to his wife, Donna Sultan-Semiao. Alice was the daughter of the late Jose J. Pacheco and Maria (Constantina) Pacheco. Alice was born in Taunton, MA, lived most of her life in New Bedford, MA, 20-plus years in East Hartford, CT and the last year-and-a-half with her son and daughter-in-law in Farmington, CT. She was a lady of strong faith, a communicant of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in New Bedford and of Saint Christopher’s in East Hartford during her Connecticut years. Alice worked as a supervisor of women’s apparel manufacturing in Hartford, CT before retiring in 1981. After retiring, she moved back to New Bedford, joined the Panthers Golden Agers club living a very active, fun and full life with friends and family, spreading joy, kindness and humor to all she met. Alice became a devout fan of the Boston Red Sox, watching virtually every game on TV for years. The Red Sox 2012 season may have been her undoing.
