May 15, 1961 - June 29, 2019
Eleonor Guiala Lumanog, Age 58, was born in the Philippines on March 15, 1961. After a short battle with stage 4 Lung cancer, On the day of June 29, 2019, she finally received rest and has flown with the angels to her rightful spot among them. A Simple Life is all she ever wanted. A loving and warm family. Spiritual awareness, but not necessarily “religious.” A Simple home as she mentioned on countless occasions, “Gusto ko nang Bahay Kubo (Nipa Hut), Sapat na Presko pa!” She dreamed of a small humble garden to exercise her green thumb, a skill passed down to her by her father. A strong work ethic and a keen sense for the greater good. She often practiced the art of forgiveness and the desire to help others. If anyone is familiar with the story of “The Giving Tree”, she would be quite the candidate for that metaphor. Simple pleasures she indulged in, Good food, Coffee, Korean dramas, therapeutic shopping for deals, and more shopping. Did I mention she loved to shop? Eleonor also enjoyed selling candies to kids and other simple convenience items in her little shop in the Philippines. She often would vacation in the Philippines to repair her properties and had her shop up and running at the same time. Above all of her features to be remembered, she was careful with how she treated people, a good person to her bones. It would be difficult to find anyone she mistreated or hurt. It just wasn’t in her nature. She had an almost naïve approach to her values, that no one could dislike her for. It takes a beautiful soul to commit to a way of thinking that puts others before yourself. She understood what was truly important to her, and was a better leader than people realized. Eleonor knew that you needed to have the strength and guts to pursue your goals , but she also understood what it meant to be weak. Being sensitive and able to sympathize to the feelings of others gave her the judgement to help people in ways that truly mattered. When two people share the same pain there can be no bad blood! Someone strong who doesn’t understand the weakness of others could never hope to connect as deeply. What often happens is the strong becomes burdened by the weak, instead of uniting and overcoming the issues together. This is not to say she was not a strong person. Those who knew her also knew that she endured a great deal of hardship in her time and never tried to burden anyone with it. If possible she did her best to face her worries alone. She displayed a kind of strength that people would always remember, and makes her absence ever harder to accept.

Quezon University. She then proceeded to work at that same school teaching College Math and Worked as an Architectural Designer for a Government Construction Firm at Camp Crame. She quickly realized that her passion did not lie in this line of work and eventually, the whole family migrated from the Philippines to Hawaii in November 1994. After having migrated without her husband, she quickly became a solo provider for her 2 sons. Until her husband was able to travel to Hawaii on June 23, 2003. She worked at many different jobs, gathering work experience from all kinds of entry level positions to managing. Her final job was a scheduler at Maxicare.Link before being diagnosed with Late Stage Lung Cancer, as is common, due to its nature of showing no symptoms till later stages. Her family owned apartments that she maintained often and opened up “Sari-Sari” stores whenever she went back to the Philippines. She got married to Rolando F. Lumanog on February 7th, 1998. Raised her kids and introduced them to the Bible, at young ages. Eleonor then dedicated her life to taking care of her Family, Mother Rosario F. Guiala, and her sons Sid Kenneth Lumanog and Ross Kevin F. Guiala, as well as being a good wife to her Husband Rolando F. Lumanog. RELIGION- Eleonor was not necessarily “religious”, but she often looked to the Bible for guidance and did her best to be a faithful servant. She mainly practiced a little bit of Catholic religion, and also studied with Jehovas Witness on the side to strengthen her faith. And she did enjoy watching/listening to the lectures of Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen. Some of her favorite lectures from Joel Osteen was called “Blessed in Dark Places.” And to end it off with a nice touch, below is one of her favorite Poems called, “Footprints in the Sand”.
