When someone lives to 95, people tend to marvel about their still-keen mind, their remaining agility. The way Marta Ruazol Lazaro lived her longer-than-most-people’s life was really something.
Marta Ruazol Lazaro passed away on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 in Cavinti, Laguna, Philippines. She was 95. Her remains lie in estate at their residence in Junction, Cavinti, Laguna, Philippines.
Nanay Marta Ruazol Lazaro is a legitimate Cavintinian who was born on August 10, 1916. Married to the late Gonzalo Flores Lazaro of the same town, the couple is blessed with four children: Coring, Dolfo, Arthur (RIP) and Geline. She turned 95 on August 10, 2011..
She used to go to church by herself. She loved attending parties, associating with the people she meets.
Nanay was very fortunate when sometime in the past, she fell near the heavy glass door of a bank she went to. She lost her balance and this landed her in the hospital for a hip surgery. After two weeks of recuperating, she was able to walk on her own again.
The Almighty God showered her with more infinite blessings – enjoying life and see the wonderful things in the world. She was very much involved in community work, together with her daughter Geline. She loved to go shopping during the numerous sale events which she patiently waited for, and usually bought many items as her “pamigay or pasalubong” when she went home to Cavinti.
She was very generous to all her relatives and friends in Cavinti. She shared monetarily of their needs. Her philosophy is: “It is better to give than to receive. That is what God wants us to do, to share blessings.” And according to her, those will come back in hundredfolds.
Nanay Marta is survided by her two daughters, Cora and Geline and her son Rudy, her son-in-law/ daughter-in-law, her grandchildren, neices and nephews and other relatives.
Complete details of the memorial services will be announced later.
We will miss you, Nanay Marta. May you rest in peace.
