Filomena was born to Francisco and Maria Reyes on September 12, 1918. She was quiet, simple and well-liked. She married at the very young age of 18, had seven children, Jesus, Luz, Pablito, Cecilia, Martina, Rodolfo, and Antonio.
"Ebang," as her family and friends call her, was easily the ideal wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great grandmother, a family would ever wish for. She was caring, nurturing and patient. She was the Alejandrino family's light, guide and peacemaker. Her warmth and generous character was an inspiration to all her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Filomena lived a long, happy, fruitful life. She took care of most of her twenty-two grandchildren. Her loving nature kept the family close together. She remembered everybody's birthday, and had a story or two for each member.
Our dear Filomena will surely be missed. she will always be remembered and will always be in our hearts!
"Sa aking mga anak, apo at mahal sa buhay, lagi 'nyong tatandaan na naging masaya ako sa piling ng bawat isa; at mahal na mahaal ko kayong lahat."
