Two days earlier, her son, Boy, rushed her to the hospital
due to her weak condition. Her
blood sugar rose to a very high level. According
to Boy, her mother was already doing well and was already set to leave for home
in a few days when suddenly she was rushed to the ICU as her blood pressure went
down to 50/0. In a few hours, she
died in her sleep. She succumbed to
cardiac arrest, the attending physician told Boy.
Her remains were interred at the Himlayang Pilipino in Quezon City beside
her late husband, Ship Captain Jose Tenazas, Sr. She was survived by her four
children: Lulu, Jose, Jr. or Boy, Jimmy or Boyet, and Cirilo II or Nono.
Mrs. Tenazas was one of the incorporators of Damayan-Buluseño, Inc. when
it was organized in 1982. Since
then, she was its treasurer until her death.
About five years ago, she had a heart attack leaving her left side of the
body paralyzed. But, it did not
hamper her in the performance of her duties as treasurer of the association and
in attending the monthly mass for the Buluseños at the Knights of Columbus
Clubhouse in Intramuros.
Lately though, her health deteriorated even more which hindered her from
moving on her own. Her
responsibilities had to be given to her assistant.
A week before her death, DBI president Rogelio F. Fuentes visited her in
her residence to inform her that the officers’ Christmas party will be held at
her residence on December 7 so she could be with the group.
Although she was happy about it, Mr. Fuentes sensed that she was not in
her usual self when she would laugh heartily to his jokes.
She looked sad and depressed, Mr. Fuentes said.
Mr. Fuentes further stated that Mrs. Tenazas was well loved and highly
respected not only by the other officers of DBI but also by other Buluseños who
know her, and her peers in the other organizations where she also previously
served as treasurer.
