Our Condolences To Jennylyn Mercado For The Passing Of Her Mommy Lydia Mercado

CONDOLENCES to the family of Jennylyn Mercado for the passing of her mom, Mommy Lydia Mercado, 74 years old at St. Luke’s on Saturday morning. Mommy Lydia was confined at the hospital two weeks ago yet due to leukemia but the immediate cause of her demise is sepsis due to pneumonia.

When Jennylyn won as best actress in drama for “My Faithful Husband” last week, her mom was already fighting for her life and the award is a bright spot in Jen’s life then. “Hindi alam ng mga tao ang pinagdaraanan niya noon,” says our source. “That time, si Mommy Lydia, puro tubo na sa ilong at bibig and her hospital bills were escalating, but Jen put up a very brave front.”

Her wake will be held at Loyola Commonwealth then she will be cremated. Let’s pray for the eternal repose of her soul.
