It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Divina on November 30th, 2020. She is now rejoined with her parents Cristino and Elena. Beloved wife of Ricardo Dizon de Jesus and loving mother to Edward Martin de Jesus and Mark Steven de Jesus (Hue Kim Khuu). Grandmother to Austen Nolan de Jesus. Loving sister to Laurello Samonte Anasco Sr. ( Lolita), Dario Samonte Anasco (Flora,Dolores) and Lilia Natalia Santos (Virgilio). She will be missed and remembered by many other family and friends in Canada, The United States and the Philippines. Divina was devoted to her Divine Mercy prayer group, an avid Mah-jongg player, enjoyed bowling with the Kapisanan Bowling League (1970's & 80's), ballroom dancing and a lover of travel. In lieu of flowers donations may be to the Arthritis Society, Canadian Cancer Society, Covenant House, and Plan International.
On behalf of Divina, and for those who knew her lovingly as "Mrs. de Jesus", "Bing", "Baby", "Tita", "Auntie", "Ate", "Lola", "Grandma" and most importantly, "Mom", Ricardo, Edward and Mark would like to thank everyone who knew and loved her, laughed and cried with her and shared special moments with her throughout her life. She was generous beyond words. We will truly miss this wonderful woman who affected so many. She will always be in our hearts and in our minds. She will never be forgotten.

I'm heartbroken and miss you Bing, as my closest friend among my Divine Mercy Prayer Group. Seldom we talked on the phone but we had a long, funny chat that lasted an hour or so.
We have the same out- look of life with strong family ties.
I'm blessed to have you in my life and your memories lives on. I love you !! Rest in peace. my dearest friend !. 🙏❤😥
My aunt, my Tita Baby - she was tough, unflappable, but, oh so generous and kind. Knowing that today was the last time I would gaze at her pretty face, was heartbreaking.
I'm happy for her, though. The debilitating pain that she suffered for years, only to be exacerbated by what turned out to be aneurysm, is gone. She is reunited with all our departed loved ones. More importantly, she has gone home to the place that God had prepared for her, in Heaven. How lovely is that!
She was the cool aunt who played jackstones on the living room floor with us when we were kids, who had deep conversations with rebellious teenage me, and who cried with me over the phone when we were both going through a rough patch. It was during one of those calls that we tentatively planned a girl's night out - dinner and movie - her treat. It never happened - shift work.....kids....life......then time went by and we forgot about it. That was decades ago. I can only imagine how much fun that would have been.
