The Life of Paz G Lugtu
Paz G. Lugtu passed away peacefully on July 28, 2020 at the age of 102.

Paz graduated from the Nursing School of Southern Islands Hospital in Cebu, Philippines. There she met her husband Emilio, an officer in the U.S. army who fell ill and was her patient at the hospital. They married and raised their children in Manila and eventually moved to the United States. During their life in America, she worked as a registered nurse and finally retired after many years from the Newborn Nursery Unit at St. Luke’s Hospital in San Francisco, California. She always enjoyed gardening, crocheting, knitting, sewing and, especially, cooking; she was quite an expert in all of these. She loved and cared for her family joyously and tirelessly.
