Northborough – Bibiana Ollada, aged 83, died Friday Feb 18, 2011, with her daughter at her side, after a brief illness.
Born in the Philippines in 1927, she immigrated to the U.S. in 1980 to live with her only child, Carmen Waugh of Northborough and husband Ron. She was proud to earn her U.S. Citizenship in 1999.
She leaves behind her daughter, Carmen, and two grandchildren, Elise Brown of Stamford, Conn. and Jared Brown of Millbury, as well as two great-grandchildren, Renny and Skyla.
Always of humble demeanor and quiet disposition, she was both adored and playfully teased by her grandkids and great-grandkids, and she doted upon them with great affection.
A self-taught, expert seamstress, she kept busy hemming clothes for the extended family, and designing a variety of clothes and accessories for them. When not watching her beloved Red Sox or a Jason Statham movie, she would spend hours in the flower garden with her daughter (and best pal) Carmen.
A calling hour will be held Monday Feb. 21, from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by a funeral service at 7 p.m. in Hays Funeral Home, 56 Main St., Northborough. For online condolence, please visit www.haysfuneralhome.com.
