OBITUARY

Mrs. Erlinda I. Lumanog

January 25, 1933July 25, 2020

Erlinda (Linda) Inocentes Lumanog, 87, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family and friends July 25, 2020. She was born in Salinas Bacoor, Cavite, Philippines January 25, 1933.

At 18 she left her home for Manila to serve as a midwife and au pair. There she met Claudio, the love of her life. As a proud Navy wife she devotedly followed him from the Philippines to Okinawa, San Diego, CA and Norfolk, VA. She taught herself to understand and speak English, learn the American way of life while keeping and teaching our Filipino family values and traditions. She worked many years for the Virginian Pilot and for U.S. Flag and Signal. She loved playing Bingo, enjoyed the company of her Bingo mates, and also enjoyed the occasional trip to a casino. She was a master Filipino vegetable gardener, seamstress, skilled crocheter, crafter and fabulous cook. She was never afraid to ‘say her peace,’ as she passed on all her wisdom and common sense.

She had six children of her own but had a hand in raising numerous ‘cousins.’ She was a wonderful friend, Mom, Lola, or Great Lola to one and all.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Claudio G. Lumanog, Sr; daughter, Maria Elena (Helen) Lumanog McGlothlin; her parents Alcadio and Leuteria Dominguez Inocentes; her sister and two brothers. She is survived by her children, Doris (Michael) Arau of Suquamish, WA; Alicia (David) White of Como, NC; Vicky (Brian) Lumanog-Sementelli of Como, NC; Noel (Carol) Lumanog of Norfolk, VA; and Claude (Teresa) Lumanog, Jr. of Chesapeake, VA; 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

The family will receive friends Friday, July 31, 2020 from 5pm to 7pm at Woodlawn Funeral Home 6329 E. Virginia Beach Blvd., Norfolk. A small family service will be held Saturday, August 1, 2020, at 1200 noon. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the American Cancer Society in Linda's memory.

We would like to send our heartfelt prayers to the Lumanog Family, we were neighbors for forty eight years. I remember as a litlle girl I could not pronounce their last name, so I would call them Mr. Mrs. Lum Lum . You can only imagine how many memories our families have shared too many to mention and our bond and love we have with the Lumanog family.
Linda was a very nice and caring woman. What I admired the most was a wonderful mother. Mrs Lumanog will be truly missed. God Bless and we love you.

While I personally did not know Ms. Erlinda, I had the pleasure to work with her amazing daughter Alicia. She always shared such wonderful stories of her mother which showed how close and how much her and the family loved and respected her. I know she will be missed dearly and can only hope and pray that your family finds peace in her absence filled with beautiful memories of such a lovely woman, mother and grandmother.

Sincerely,

There are no words to express my sorrow for your loss. I know Mrs. Erlinda Lumanog raised a great daughter Mrs. Alicia White I had the pleasure of learning from. From the stories Mrs. White shared with me about you, I know you were a strong tough loving woman that did amazing things not only for the family, but for the community. May God bless and comfort you and your family.

My condolences.
