Obituary of Magdalena Brillantes
In loving memory of Magdalena Ta-a Brillantes (known as our "Mama Dolly") who passed peacefully at home, surrounded by her family on August 15th, 2018.
Beloved wife of late Florencio Velasco Brillantes, adored by her children (Mel, Bing, Jim, Tess & Rei), grandchildren (including Michelle, CJ, Ismail, Azeem, Den), great-grandchildren, her dog (Mocha) as well as her large extended family.
She was a fighter who endured numerous obstacles throughout her life while constantly keeping a smile on her face. She will be remembered for her strength, independence, positivity, generosity, great sense of humour and her overall loving nature. She was kind, gentle and handled everything with patience and grace. She was devoted to her family and always put everyone else before herself. She is deeply loved and will be truly missed.
Forever in our hearts, we love you always Mama.
