Leonila was born July 29, 1939 in Pampanga, Philippines where she grew up into a vibrant, smart and beautiful young woman. Always with a smile. Leonila was married to Ruben Buensuceso in November 28, 1965 at Florida Blanca Church. She raised eight beautiful children while Ruben worked abroad in hopes to provide for their growing family.
Leonila was a caring person who did not differentiate between family and friends. Her heart was always open to those who needed her, and she never was the one to complain about anything. She was mom and grandma to many more than her own children!
Leonila will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by her family.
The family wishes to extend their sincere gratitude to the Misericordia Hospital where Apo “grandma” always had revolving visitors. Their support, care and compassion during this difficult time was second to none and allowed Apo to pass while being surrounded by family and love right to the end.
