Penafrancia D Salas Francia On Sunday June 21, 2020 we lost the most beloved, the most revered, the real soul of our family. Our Mom, our Mama, our Francia was born in Pampanga, Philippines and provided the United States Department of State with 30+ years of service as a Visa Counselor Officer. Francia was ever committed to her family and her Roman Catholic faith. She was preceded in death by her siblings Reolandi Diaz, Lagrimas Seiler, Asuncion Diaz and Honorio Diaz. She is survived by her husband, Vitaliano Salas, her sons, Richard & Wilbur Salas, her grandchildren, Francesca, Willa, Natasha, & Alexa, her sisters, Cecilia Lising & Juliana Ocampo, and an unbelievable number of nieces & nephews. In lieu of flowers we ask that you either provide a donation to the American Cancer Society or the Cathedral of St Thomas More, Arl, VA in her name.

Francia had a generous spirit. She never made you feel like you’re a stranger in her home. Every time we come over, she would start warming up food for us to eat and she won’t take no for an answer. She was one of the best cook I’ve known. We will miss her dearly.
