Lucila Hiso-An Molinos
August 28th, 1933 – April 18th, 2021
My name is Patrick Molinos and I am the son of Lucila Molinos. It’s my honor to tell you about
the exceptional woman I was Blessed to call “Mom”.
Lucila Hiso-An Molinos was born to Clemente & Rosa Hiso-An on August 28th, 1933 in San
Miguel Iloilo, Philippines. She was the 4th child out of 7 children. Growing up, I would listen to
her stories about her childhood experiences and realized that she wasn’t as fortunate as people
were and had to do her part to help her parents support their family, whether it was taking care
of her younger siblings or working in the rice fields. The stories she shared with me made me
recognize just how strong my mom was and how she selflessly made sacrifices for her family.
She married my Father Rick on March 1971 and soon after relocated to Guam. A year after my
sister, Cathy was born and a couple of years after I was born. I remember when i was younger,
she would come home from work and would get dinner ready for us. There were times when I
was picky and didn’t want to eat the food that she made that night so she would end up
cooking something especially for me to eat, even though she may have been tired from working
all day. That was how loving and caring my mom was. She would put my needs before her own.
My mom was able to get her Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting before she married my Father and
her career in Accounting stems over 40 years from working in the Federal government and
private companies. I was able to talk to a former employer of hers about her passing and he said
that “She was a trustworthy and honest lady that will never let them cheat on their taxes. She
was a joy and very memorable person to work with. We’ll miss her much”. That’s how my mom
Another example of my mom’s honesty was when I was a kid, we had finished shopping at a
store. We were back in the car and she saw me eating some candy that I did not pay for. We
went back into the store and paid for it. She told me that she needed to pay for the candy,
because I would get a stomach ache for eating stolen food.
My mom may never have had a glamorous career, but she was well-respected within the
community. For many years she was the Treasurer for The Legion of Mary in the Santa Barbara
Church in Guam, Our Lady of Fatima member in Dededo, Guam, member of Guam Accountants
Association, member of Iloilo Association of Guam, and a member of Negrenses International in
Guam affiliated with Negrenses International in America. She was happy to have contributed
her time and associated with people who share the same passion in her religion and profession.
My mom was a strong, selfless, honest, kind, considerate, loving and caring person. She has
made a lot of sacrifices for my sister and I as well as for her grandchildren, nieces, nephews and
other relatives. She has taught me patience, forgiveness, and to always believe in God and
prayers. “Those we love don’t go away. They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but
always near, still loved, still missed and very dear”.
We will always love and miss you, Mom! We know that you are in a better place and will always
be watching over us.
