Leonora “Boo” Gonsalves

After a long life of bringing happiness and joy to others, Leonora M. “Boo” Gonsalves, long time resident of Livermore, CA, passed away to be with her Lord on April 14, 2024. Boo had a deep faith in God and was an active member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Livermore. She took great pleasure in offering instruction to those seeking to be baptized into the Catholic faith. She served as a lay minister, taking communion and offering comfort to home-bound parishioners, and volunteered when needed to assist at St. Michael’s Rectory. One of her greatest joys was instructing children on their First Communion. She loved children, cats (especially ‘Mosie Toes’), dogs (‘puppy toes’) and sharing a nice glass of wine with her many friends.

Boo retired from Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. Prior to her work at the lab, she worked for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department, Santa Rita. Boo enjoyed the final 21 years of her life with her beloved fiancé, Barry Camara. Boo was predeceased by her husband, Ron Gonsalves, Parents Mary & Antone Cunha, her brothers, Anthony “Tony” Cunha and Joaquin “King” Cunha and sister-in-law, Berniece. She is survived by her daughter, Rene Curtis (Michael), three grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren, her nieces, Lynette White (Patty Largent) and Kimberly Cunha (Scott), her nephew Richard Cunha (Maria), her God Daughter, Paige Barrett (Rick), Boo was a wonderful and devoted friend. She was quick to adopt others into her extended family, but most of all Phil Ammendolia (Laura), who was like a son to her. Her loving, positive nature, warm smile, and delightful sense of humor will be missed by all who knew her.  If you met Boo, you loved Boo!
