A family statement reads: “Our mother was a strong and independent woman. She left the Philippines to create a beautiful life in America. It was both our parents love, determination, and dedication that gave us the opportunity to prosper and grow. She was the glue that held our family together and the rock that kept us strong. Her resilience made her an inspiration and a role model for all future generations to come. She will be missed greatly and her memory shall forever live in our hearts.”
