April 2, 1940 – June 4, 2021
A wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, colleague and a friend.
Youngest of the 7 siblings of Francisco Santos Correa and Elena Bernabe Bernardino, born in the Phillippines. Worked as a teacher, guidance counselor and had talent in writing poems. Eppie married her love of her life Renato, with whom she had 3 children: Rolan, Ronald, and Lulu.
Eppie guided and raised her three kids on her own while her husband was working overseas. More than a decade ago they both retired and came to America and enjoyed taking care of 2 of her 7 grand-kids and goes home to the Philippines to see her other grand-kids once regularly.
Eppie loved cooking, chatting with friends/relatives and entertain by telling jokes, enjoyed being the life of the party as she always says “laughter is the best medicine.” When she was hospitalized and stayed in rehab after surgery, the hospital staff always gather in her room to hear her jokes. She always reminds everyone and wants them to memorize these: “Pray, hope and don’t worry because God is always with me, and to always say “Thank you, Please and I’m sorry.” Eppie was beautiful inside and out, always thinks of good on people. She was described by many as loving, caring, thoughtful and generous.
Nanay Eppie, your sudden passing has been tragic and numbing to all of us. Relieved you are now at peace and re-uniting with family and friends in Heaven. May God, His angels and saints welcome you in your new life eternity and allow you to watch over and guide us to safe path.
We love you and miss you. Farewell for now, until we meet again.
Love, Renato, Rolan, Ronald,Lulu, in-laws and grand-kids
