Joseph CARVALHO
Age 81, of Saint Paul, Minnesota Peacefully passed away on December 22, 2020, at Regions Hospital after a swift battle with lung cancer. Joe was born on March 16, 1939 in Goa, India. His family moved from India to Kenya, where Joe spent his childhood and young adult years in Mombasa and Nairobi. In 1972, Joe had the opportunity to attend the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire. He earned degrees in accounting and computer science and worked in accounting and systems management for more than 20 years. While in Eau Claire, Joe met his wife-to-be, Clare Verbeten, of Appleton, WI. Joe and Clare moved to Minnesota in 1977, and went on to settle down on the East Side of Saint Paul and have two daughters, Annie and Henrietta (Hattie). Joe ended up spending more years of his life in Saint Paul than any other place in the world. Joe was predeceased by wife Clare, father Joaquim and mother Deodita, and brothers Anthony of Goa, India and Guilherme (Sharon) of Hemet, Calif. He is survived by daughters Annie Spanjers (Matthew) of Charlotte, NC and Hattie Carvalho Hall (Tyler) of St. Paul, MN; grand children John and Amelia Spanjers and Clare Hall; sister Annie (Anthony) of Calgary, Alberta, Canada; brothers Dominic (Stella) of Eau Claire, WI, and Simon of St. Paul, MN; and 12 nieces and nephews.

Words cannot express the shock on that fateful day, when we received the news of your hospitalization, dearest brother and U.Joe. We prayed so hard for a miracle which was not meant to be, but thank God for your peacefully passing from this earth as you joined our loved ones in heaven. Our hearts are broken and tears stream down our cheeks everytime we think of how suddenly you left us but we take comfort in the many cherished memories of happy times shared together to help us cope with your great loss. Rest in eternal peace ...until we meet again. Sorrowfully, Flory, Sis.Annie & Family

Am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my classmate Joseph Carvalho. We finished school in 1958 and sadly I never had the good fortune of being in contact with him since. I am currently working on the project: "Archiving Memories of Mombasa Goan School" that we attended. Would very much like to get in touch with any of his daughters (Annie/Henrietta) or even his brother, Dominic, who was also a schoolmate, to find out more about Joseph's life, career and family. My deepest sympathies to all the family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.
