Aquilina or Lynn as she was often called was kind, generous and had such a positive spirit to her. She was always thinking of others, always laughing, always had a smile on her face and always wanted to make others feel welcome. Born in the Philippines in 1944, she moved to Winnipeg where she and her husband Efren were married on October 18, 1975. From there, they created a life for themselves. She worked at various garment factories in Winnipeg, including the last 14 years of her working career before retirement with Endurapak. While she loved her co-workers and considered them good friends, Lynn's most joy was in caring for her family, whether it be for her parents whom she cared for and lived with until their passing, her husband and children, and the many other relatives, some of which lived in Lynn and Efren's home on Gallagher Avenue when they first moved to Winnipeg. She had so much family throughout Canada, the Philippines and other parts of the world whom she loved dearly. Frequent trips back to the Philippines and roadtrips throughout Canada and the United States were also fun things she enjoyed doing with her family.
Lynn loved cooking and feeding her family. We can still remember her cooking for countless hours to put on a lavish feast for us nearly every holiday but especially Christmas. She loved spending time with her family especially her brothers and sisters, and whenever they were reunited, they would often be seen reminiscing and laughing, and often going to casinos for some fun together.
In the Fall of 2018, Lynn and Efren had sold the loving house on Gallagher they had built their life around and moved to British Columbia to be with Myleen for their retirement years.
We are heartbroken as this death came unexpectedly. We can be comforted knowing that she died peacefully in her sleep at home and that she is now reunited with our Lord and her beloved son Edwin. We will love and miss her always.
A private viewing was held at Valley View Funeral Home in Surrey, BC. A private viewing is being held at Glen Eden Funeral Home on Saturday, December 19 and a funeral service will be held on Monday, December 21 at 2:00 p.m.
Rest in eternal peace Aquilina Aco
