Biografía

Adelma was welcomed by parents Fidel Aquino and Fidelina (Ideng) de Vega on 25 May 1929 just three months before the stock market crash hit the United States. As though an eye for hope, they chose the name Adelma because it means noble and famous. At this time in their life, the family, which consisted of children Rafaela, Marciano, Josefa, and Virginia, lived in the island of Samar.



Adelma is addressed as Tiyang (auntie) Delma by progenies and Del by friends and associates.



Although Adelma never finished grade school, she accomplished her ambition to be a well-rounded beautician. Committed to the mission of Milady, Adelma followed proper handling of clients and kept abreast of current hairstyles, massage, and cosmetology. Not surprising at all because even at a young age, Adelma showed an analytical mind. She dissect to understand things before making a decision or taking action. She relied on concrete information before offering solution/s.



While working at Milady, Francisco (Ikong) Legaspi celebrated her as his future bride. To discourage Ikong’s courting, Adelma pretended to be an unwed mother, which did not work. Because unbeknownst to her, Ikong accomplished his successful courtship through Adelma’s mother. How could Lola Ideng rebuff a handsome and manly United States Navy sailor from Ligtong, Cavite? And so on 21 December 1949 with the best approbation from mother Ideng, they were married at the Church of the Holy Rosary in Rosario, Cavite. It was solemnized by Father Pedro Victoria.



From this union came Maria Paz (Merly), Francis (Cing), and Francisco (Frankie).



When Ikong retired, they settled with daughter Francis in California. Wanting to remain active, Adelma worked as a nurse’s aide at Paradise Hills Convalescent Center where she was named employee of the month twice, first in 1977 and then in 1983. By 1989, Ikong having succumbed to diabetes, Adelma continued to be involved in the community. She spear headed the 2000 Hail Marys mission in her Chula Vista neighborhood.



After living 32 years of widowhood, Adelma joined Ikong on 1 April 2021. She is survived by her three children, nine grandchildren, and eight great grandchildren.
