Many thanks for this discovery, @estebangonzalez, and for posting about this woman, @mendocino!

She looked like a lovely lady, based on the pictures.

 

Would either of you know where exactly she was born and where exactly she died? Many thanks!

Overduidelijk misschien.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any biographical info on this woman, although it seems like she died in Lisbon.

It's great to hear about Joaquina, it's a shame that we didn't know about her during her life. Her death record should include her place of birth so that would be one way of finding her birth record.

@estebangonzalez @mendocino, do you have a direct link that confirms her exact date of death?

We left messages to Joaquina's relative on Facebook but he hasn't responded yet so we don't know for sure where he died, as Mendocino says, it was probably in Lisbon

Thanks @estebangonzalez, I was just wondering if you have a link to the source that confirms her exact date of death? I just wanted to make sure that we save a copy of that specifically for validation purposes. Hopefully you will hear back soon, Joaquina was clearly very much loved by her family.

Of course

Perhaps the relative can answer someone else or can see some other way to leave a message

Thanks Esteban, hopefully her grandson will be able to confirm her date of death as well, I couldn't see it explicitly mentioned in his post.
