Obituary for Cecilia Barros Dicdiquin

December 2, 1957 - July 19, 2019

Cecilia was born December 2, 1957 in Claveria Misamis Oriental, Philippines. She passed away last July 19, 2019 after being diagnosed of Pancreatic Cancer in early 2018. She leaves behind her husband Dennis, three children: Chris, Lourena and Eunice, three son/ daughter in-laws: Sandy, Zack and Ned and four grandchildren: Matthew, Dominic, Magnus and Alex.

Cecilia was the youngest of 12 siblings and lived a very joyful life. She started working as early as her high school days to support her family and her education at the same time. She completed her degree in accounting and worked in the finance industry most of her life. Typical of her selflessness, she took a few years off work to take care of her growing family at the risk of throwing away her career. She was a strict but loving mother to her children and a very dedicated wife to her husband. She grew a household that was centred around God and service to others. She emphasized the importance of humility and kindness to others by living as an example to her children throughout their life.

She eventually returned to her finance career with great success. Cecilia was fearless in taking on any personal or professional challenge knowing that God will be there to guide her. This fearless philosophy propelled her into a career as an international finance consultant focusing on SME finance/ banking. She travelled the world with her family and enjoyed working with people from different cultures. Throughout her professional career, Cecilia remained the loving, humble and joyful person whose life was dedicated in service to God.

Cecilia enjoyed travelling, swimming in the beach, singing and walking outdoors. She also loved to cook and to have meaningful conversations with people during a good meal. Cecilia was also a very devout catholic who went to Church every day and lived her life following the teachings of St, Jose Maria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei.

She will be missed but her life will live on through the people whom she touched.
