TAUNTON- Maria José Correia, 83, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on June 10, 2022. She was the loving wife of Orlando Correia for 61 years.

The family would like to thank all the medical staff at Beth Israel Deaconess and her local medical team for Mrs. Correia's excellent medical care.
