On Monday night (June 27th) Emily’s mom suffered a stroke. She was rushed to hospital and was given the customary care and tests. While undergoing a CT scan she suffered a second stroke and entered a coma.
Momma remained in ICU for a few days and then was moved to a private room. Momma never awoke from her coma. On Sunday we had a small family dinner, and on Monday celebrated the birthday of one of her many grandchildren. Momma had been singing with friends when the stroke happened.
She passed away last night(July 3rd,2011), her daughters and a few grandchildren at her side. While we take comfort in the fact that Momma turned 75 this year and had lived a full life, it does little to lesson the loss for her family.
The wake will begin today at the Adi Jasa, and then the ceremony will be on Friday.
Lilik Rahayu is survived by her sisters, her children – Tony(son),Siok Hwa(daughter),Siok Mey(daughter),and Siok Ling(daughter) as well as Sons-in-law and a daughter-in-law, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
