Buko pechay

Dorie Villanueva dela Cruz, mother of Bulacan PB Buko dela Cruz and Baliwag Coun. Pechay dela Cruz, dies.


After a long and hard fought battle, the matriarch of the dela Cruz Family, Mrs. ISIDORA VILLANUEVA DELA CRUZ passed away, just a quarter shy to 3pm today.

Tita Dorie to many, her equanimity never faltered amidst the pain associated to her illness. Medical interventions  available for leukemia were often exhaustive and painful. 

Before illness slowed her, she was active in serving the church, as member of the Samahan ng Our Lady of Lourdes, a church-based women’s organization. She was a hands-on mother to a brood of four -Atty. Buko, Direk Eric, Atty. Pechay and Elmer. 

The body will lie in repose at the Knights of Columbus Hall, Parish of St. Augustine, Racelis St., Poblacion, Baliwag, Bulacan.
