It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that 

Aurora "Ate Rory" B. Valdellon

member of Sunflower CLC Community peacefully returned to our loving Creator yesterday, Monday, October 19, 2020 in her home in San Pablo City, Laguna. She was 94. 

A model of faith and a beacon of hope, Ate Rory was one of the pillars of the Christian Life Community of the Philippines and a faithful lay partner of the Center for Ignatian Spirituality-Philippines in its founding years. She was also Grade School Principal of the Old Ateneo de San Pablo. 

We are grateful to Ate Rory for showing us an example of how to live a true Christian life. Her life of humble service for the Lord has truly inspired many of us and our memories with her will forever be etched in our hearts. May all the angels and saints welcome her and present her to our Lord. 

We love you, Ate Rory!
