Marylene, as the president of our San Nicolenous of California, I still remember the boodle food presentation on her birthday a few years back, a very exciting thing for me.
And her leadership to have a Hawaiian theme fundraiser, another colorful event.
She also share her love as sharing her persimmons.
And laughters, joking around with us, a time of good while she was with us. I miss those time.
I miss her.

Marylene or( Baby as her nickname) was a happy,thoughtful and caring person.
I have known her since childhood,since we we were not only neighbors in San Nicolas but also related.
We did not see each other since I left the Phil. In 1966 till several years after , when she and her Mom visited us in Southern Ca.
We did not have any communication till 5 years ago when she invited me and my siblings to attend the San Nicolas Assoc.installation of officers of which she was the newly elected president.
From that time on,she sent me flowers on Mothers Day, and even sent me persimmons which I greatly appreciated .In addition she would call me and talk for long periods.

I will miss you Baby, May our Lord 's perpetual light shine upon you and grant you eternal peace.
