Farewell Nanay Trining


Our deepest condolence to Ann’s family for the loss of her beloved mother Nanay Trining. Friends and family gathered at St. Michael & John’s Cathedral in Bathurst on the 12th of September to say their last good bye and farewell to Nanay Trining. The beautiful mass service was performed by Father Josy. Nanay was a lovely lady - very, well respected and loved in the Filipino community, bless her soul. Nanay was born on the 10th of March 1940 and passed away on the 6th of September from cancer, she was a mother and grandmother to all the children in the Filipino community especially in the Bathurst Filipino Association Community. She was kind, generous, caring and compassionate. The Filipino community were very sad to see you go Nanay Trining but at the same time we are happy to see you are no longer in pain. Nanay Trining has only one daughter Marie Hernandez who is married to Rosetto Luis Hernandez, two granddaughters and a great grandson. Nanay Trining you will be missed and may your soul rest in peace.

Our friend Isabel Talaue just turned 31 years old last Saturday 14th of September. Friends and Isabel’s boyfriend Victor and his family gathered to help Isabel celebrate her birthday. The ladies brought food in which we all shared. The venue was at Victor’s farm, a lovely place and we had a bonfire going and we were blessed with fantastic weather that night it was indeed so much fun. We were sitting and relaxing in front of the bonfire while drinking, laughing and sharing jokes with each other. It was indeed a very enjoyable night. Thank you very much Isabel for inviting us to your birthday.
