On Saturday, January 5, 2019, Lilia Symaco Tinio entered peacefully into eternal rest. She is survived by her loving husband of over 51 years, Salvador F. Tinio. She was the loving mother of three sons; Dr. Lawrence Tinio, Dr. Salvador Tinio, Jr., and Andrew Tinio. She is blessed with seven grandchildren, namely Andre, Loy, Carol, Raphael, Philip, Andres and Alyssa. She is also survived by her two sisters Linda Symaco and Imelda Ting.

Lilia was born on June 26, 1944, in Malabon City in the Philippines. She was the daughter of Benito Symaco and Avelina Buenaventura. She was one of seven siblings. During her college years in the Far Eastern University (FEU), she studied banking, finance and accounting, and became a Certified Public Accountant.

She is the beloved wife of Salvador F. Tinio, a Lawyer. They raised three sons, with two sons being ophthalmologists and one reaching excellence in the music field. She owned and successfully managed her own restaurant in the Philippines, named “Andrew’s Place,” for eighteen years, known lovingly as “Mommy” to the students who studied at Notre Dame of Manila school, which was adjacent to the facility. After Lilia moved to Maryland from the Philippines, she worked for Macy’s and excelled in sales for years before retiring.

I thought I would still have the chance to see you again, and that was reason I planned to visit you in February, but this is what the Lord had planned. You may have been gone from this world, but the memories you shared with us will always be cherished. We will continue to pray for you.

Rest well, Mommy Lilia. We love you!
