She attended the University of the Philippines to study nursing and completed her studies at PGH Philippine General Hospital to become a Registered Nurse, a profession that she enjoyed as well as excelled in for over 40 years.

She came to the United States in 1959, attained her citizenship and has resided here since then.

Glen also lost his battle with Cancer and passed away at home with Angel by his side. She was an avid traveler and they had many trips and adventures together. She also enjoyed many trips all over the world with her classmates from PGH.

She was surrounded by her loving family on her last weekend on earth and welcomed into heaven where she was reunited with her loved ones who had passed on before her. She was deeply loved by her sister and remaining 3 brothers. Many of her nieces and nephews viewed her as a second mother because of her caring, loving heart and her warm smile. People just loved to be around her because she loved to laugh and she loved to make people laugh.

In addition to her love of travel, she enjoyed spending time with family, USC football games, plants, flowers, yard work, and singing karaoke.

She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood and her faith was strong. She believed the only way to get through hard times was through the knowledge of God, prayer and family. She knew He was always by her side.
