Mary was a stylish and classy lady. In the Philippines, she was the soloist of the Rosary Parish Church Orchestra for so many years. When she came to the US, she worked as a nursing assistant until the time when she retired.  

Following Mary’s wishes, there is no scheduled viewing. Memorial celebration will be held in the Philippines at a later date and time.  Mary was a very special person to her family and friends. Her memories will remain forever in our hearts.  

Mary’s family would like to thank relatives and friends, and the wonderful and caring nurses & assistants, and management & staff of Eliseo Retirement Community..
