Prayer Emblem

Emerenciana Nicolas Dumandan died on November 1, 2012 in Daly City. She was born on February 23, 1923 in Montalban, Rizal, Philippines to Arsenio and Bonifacia (Reyes) Nicolas. Emerenciana attended school in the Philippines and pursued a teaching degree. She was married to Tim Dumandan for over 50 years until his death in 1997.

The wife of an Army officer, Emerenciana, known to many as Emy or Miren, spent many years living in Japan, as well as the Philippines and the United States. In 1964, the family eventually settled in the San Francisco Bay Area. Not having worked outside the home, Emerenciana took joy in working part time for a short while at Oriental Mart in Daly City. She and Tim were active members of The Retired and Veterans Association (TRAVA) and enjoyed attending social functions with their many friends. Emerenciana also enjoyed gardening in the backyard of their San Mateo home and especially loved orchids and roses. In the evenings, she delighted in watching game shows as well as television song and dance competition programs.

She is survived by her children, Nenita Manansala, Rodolfo Dumandan, George Dumandan, Corazon Lai, and Robert Dumandan; step children, Jose Dumandan, Dominga Aguilar, Felicidad Pascua, Amelia Taylor, Tim Dumandan, Zenaida Mendoza, and James Dumandan; 62 grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.

Emerenciana is preceded in death by her husband, parents, brother Aquilino Nicolas; and four sisters, Norberta Sta. Maria, Emilia Geronimo, Cristina Torres, and Trinidad Nicolas.

She touched many lives and will be deeply missed.
