Angela Gueco

August 2, 1922 — July 7, 2023

It is with deep sadness that we announce that Angela Ortiz-Luis Gueco, just shy of her 101st birthday, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 7, 2023 at Bendale Acres surrounded by her loved ones.

Angela was a kind and loving wife to her soulmate, Jesus Gueco Sr for 74 years, before his passing in 2017. A beloved mother of 7 children, Cristeta Jurado (Reynaldo Jurado), Manuel Gueco, Rolando Gueco (Sylvia Gueco), Melissa Gueco Ritter, Jesus Gueco Jr. (Cecilia Gueco), Carlos Gueco (Gloria Gueco) and Celeste Gueco-Jeethan (Paul Jeethan). She was a proud grandmother and great grandmother of 52.

In her younger years, Angela was a classical pianist; the best Filipino cook ever with specialties like Kilawin, Kare-Kare, Leche plan with dayap; a ballroom dancer, and a Line dance leader, teaching all the dance moves. Always the centre of attention with an array of matching outfits with her husband, Jesus. With an infectious personality, Angela was the life of a party.
