Marissa Guardiana, 49 years old, returned to her heavenly home on June 24, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer. Her final days were spent sorrounded by her loved ones.

Marissa was born and raised in the Philippines. She graduated college with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Western Visayas State University, Iloilo, Philippines. She started her career as a nurse in Manila, Philippines. Years later she ventured to Saudi Arabia and worked in NICU to advance her career.

She immigrated to USA in July 2006. She worked at Lee Manor Rehabilitation Center as a floor nurse. Years later her excellent performance earned her a promotion as a supervisor. Her other work experience include as an RN at the stroke and telemetry units at Lutheran General Hospital and as a home health nurse at Northshore University Healthsystem and Advocate Health Care. She was s bright, competent and compassionate nurse. She was a strong advocate for her patients and their families. Her presence brought comfort and reassurance to those challenged by health issues. She was well loved by her patients and was well respected by co-workers and peers.

Marissa was a selfless, loving and kind person. Her strength never waivered and she found positivity and hope in any difficult and challenging situations. She loved her family and willingly made sacrifices to help provide for their needs. She loved to travel. Her recent visit to Italy, specifically the Vatican City, was her greatest dream come true. She also never fell short in giving her best effort to achieve her goals. One of which, and is the most important one, was acquiring her US citizenship. She beamed with pride and joy when she accepted her USA naturalization certificate.

Marissa was a loving daughter of the late Sonya and Charlie Guardiana and sister of the late Mira. She is survived by her beloved one, Eric Pascua; her loving son, Jeremy Dolendo; and siblings Therese, Joselito and Mike.

Marissa , coworker at Advocate At Home. Although in a short time I have known you, you have been always kind and extremely pleasant, generous and kind. Our meetings were brief but they were long lasting, as I kept telling to myself what an extraordinary person.

I will be thinking of you always.
