Beloved wife of the late Henrique. Loving mother of Anthony, George (Marilyn Cook-Borges) and the late Maria Filipe (Carlos). Adored Avo to Daniel Filipe (Maria), Jason Filipe (Maria), Keelie Cook (George), Alex Filipe (Maria), Rebecca Borges (George), and Harrison Borges (George).
Augusta married Henrique in Portugal in 1952, and they moved to Toronto in 1960 with Anthony and Maria. Starting with very little - and in a new and strange land - they worked tirelessly over the next 50 years to build a successful life for their family. As early Portuguese immigrants to Canada, they subsequently helped friends start a new life in this country. Augusta and Henrique touched many lives and will be remembered fondly.
