Obituary of Flora Herrera Gil
Flora Herrera Gil passed away at the age of 81 on August 6, 2022 with her four children by her side. Flora was born in Pajo Alfonso, Cavite, Philippines on November 24, 1940 as the only child to Teodora and Dionisio Herrera. At the age of 16, Flora married Alfonso Gil on January 20, 1957, and they were blessed with four children: Manuelito, Roberto, Wilfredo, and Fritzel. In the Philippines, Flora ran a meat business where she was known for her delicious tocino and longanisa. Immigrating to America at the age of 48, Flora began working at Aldila, a golf shaft manufacturer, to support her family. She later worked as a housekeeper at Pechanga Resort Casino, where she worked for 14 years before retiring. At Pechanga, she met many of her closest friends and became known for her kind, pleasant personality. After her retirement, she enjoyed her time cooking, often making her famous pancit malabon for parties. She also spent her free time talking to her friends on the phone and taking care of her plants and two dogs. Flora was defined by her simplicity, patience, and kindness, never once expressing anger towards her friends and family. Flora is survived by her four children; Manuelito Gil, Wilfredo Gil, Roberto Gil, and Fritzel Gil; and eight grandchildren; Alfie Gil, Tiffany Gil, Justin Gil, Wilmarie Gil, Robert Gil, Albert Gil, Byron Gil, and Marigold Malinao; and great-grandchild; Theodore Gil. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all that knew her.
