Emilia Anselmo Diga, aged 84, passed away on March 6, 2020 in Auburn, Washington. She was born on December 14, 1935 in Santa Maria, Ilocos Sur, Philippines. She was introduced to her future husband, Marcelino Diga, via letters and immigrated to the Seattle area upon their marriage in 1958. Millie, as friends and family called her, retired from Boeing after 22 years of service as a machinist. She loved being in the garden. When her family was young, she and her husband were known for having many rows of snow pea pods every summer. In later years, she loved growing dahlias and peonies.
Emilia is preceded in death by her husband, Marcelino, and her daughter, Marlene Kaku. She is survived by her daughter, Emilyn Wright; her four grandchildren, David, Nikki, Casey and Cameron; her sister, Paula; and numerous nephews and nieces around the globe.
