Gina Paulino Wong passed away peacefully on April 26, 2018 after a 10-month battle with cancer. Her husband, Calvin, and daughter, Ashley were by her side when her soul left this physical Earth and she started her journey to God. She now joins her mother, Patricia, who passed away in 2006 and sister Gene who passed away in 2016, in Heaven. Gina is now free of the pain she had during her battle and can rest in peace.
Born in the Philippines, Gina met Calvin in 1993, moved to the US in 1994 and they were married that same year: lasting 24 wonderful years. Their only child, Ashley, was born in 2002 and is the joy of their lives. She also had her faithful dog companion, Daphie, by her side, always comforting her.
Besides her husband/daughter, she is survived by:
·sister Girlie Leach, brother-in-law Richard, and nieces/nephews Henry, Oliver, and Nadine
·half-sister Marion "Apple" Robinson and niece Nicole
·sister-in-law Eileen Tong, brother-in-law Stacy, and nephew/niece Austin and Alicia
·mother-in-law Mary Wong and father-in-law Raymond Wong
·various aunts, uncles in the Philippines
Gina had many friends and colleagues during her 22+ years of working in the Bay Area (Siliconix, Vishay, and GlobalFoundries) + more friends/colleagues in the Philippines prior to moving to the US. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched.
