She was very prayerful, witty, intelligent, a wide reader, always compassionate & giving to the underprivileged and the needy. She was active in both civic and religious organizations. She enjoyed her years as a volunteer with the Philippine Red Cross, Philippine Girl Scouts, and Catholic Charities. For many years, she was the Secretary of her Parish Church Catholic Women’s League and was an Officer of a Women’s Club that managed the operation of a Community Health Centre. In the 70’s, she was a founding member of the Filipino Parents’ Association in Toronto.
