n loving memory of Lourdes Fontanoza, the second to the eldest of seven children of Tranguilino and Encarnation Maminta. Lourdes was born on May 27, 1926 in Calasiao, Pangasinan, Philippines. In May 3, 1945 she married Arturo Fontanoza and had 8 children, 4 boys and 4 girls. In 1949 she began studying the Bible with one of Jehovah's Witnesses and was baptized in March 12, 1950, beginning a long life as a faithful servant of Jehovah. Lourdes was a hard working, generous and caring woman who loved her husband, children, grandchildren and above all, her God Jehovah. Despite becoming weaker in her final months, she maintained a generous and caring spirit, always expressing concern about the welfare of her family. Throughout all of this, she remained cheerful and upbeat, full of joy and laughter. Lourdes fell asleep in death on February 23, 2016 having strong faith in Jehovah's promise (Job 14:14, 15) that He 'yearns' to bring back to life those sleeping in death.
