On September 3, 2020, Leoncia Tuando Manabat, beloved mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and friend, passed away at the age of 90.

Leoncia (Ely) was born on December 6, 1929 in Sampaloc, Manila, Philippines to Rosario and Ramon Tuando. She was married to Severino Manabat on October 28, 1946. They settled in Tondo, Manila, where they raised 3 daughters and 4 sons.

Ely began working at the early age of 16 where she folded laundry. That was also where she met Severino and they fell in love. She emigrated to America in 1991 and worked part time at a laundromat and as a nanny. Befitting her name, Ely was known for her tenacious personality as well as being very prudent - she could make a bit of money go a long way. She was also a devoted member of the Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ), where she performed as a deaconess for many years.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Severino. She is survived by her 7 children, Marina, Fe, Romeo, Manolito, Juliet, Danilo, and Willy, 4 sisters, 22 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
