Lawrence Cruz Sonora, the nephew of Philippine film queen Susan Roces, posted on Facebook on Friday, May 20 that she had passed away. She is 80 years old.
“RIP Mama Inday,” Lawrence wrote on Facebook on May 20. He is the son of actress Rosemary Sonora, sister of Susan, who now lives in the United States.
Grand King Fernando Poe’s wife Susan is the adoptive mother of Senator Grace Poe.
The message of condolence was received as news circulating on social media shocked the film industry.
Susan was last seen on ABS-CBN’s longest-running TV series “Ang Probinsyano for FPJ,” in which she played Cardo’s grandmother, Lola Flora, played by Coco Martin.
Aside from the engrossing action scenes that keep us on the edge of our seats and the heart-pounding love story of Cardo (Coco Martin) and Alyana (Yassi Pressman), our prime-time viewing habits are incomplete without sound advice from our audience. Always Moral Candid Lola Flora (Susan Rosyth), she says it with a little wit and a lovely tone.
But before we get to meet one of the most famous and admirable roles in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, the veteran actress takes on a bigger role in real life and confirms she’s definitely more than just a gorgeous s face”. “Refreshed”.
She is an idol in the entertainment industry
Having been in the industry for almost 7 years and staying active and respected in the moment is absolutely hard to beat.
The 77-year-old award-winning actress has a slew of hit movies and unforgettable series. She started her acting career in 1952 with the film Mga Bituin ng Kinabukasan and has since starred in several films, earning her the title of “Queen of Philippine Cinema”.
She started appearing more frequently on TV until 2006, when she starred in the sitcom John En Shirley alongside Maricel Soriano and the King of Comedy Dolphy.
She is a loving but fierce matriarch
Before being everyone’s Lola Flora, Susan was the loving wife of the late Da King Fernando Poe Jr. and the supportive mother of her unica hija Senator Grace Poe-Llamanzares.
We often see her brazenly defending her daughter in front of critics, especially in recent national elections where her citizenship and birthplace have been questioned. In addition, she continued to perform her duties as a mother dutifully, even though the politician already had a family of her own.
A far cry from her docile and level-headed personality, we witnessed her resilience in the controversial 2004 presidential election, when she expressed disgust at the dubious results. Although the action king has rested in peace for 14 years, she still misses him and loves him unwaveringly.
she is an inspirational woman
Susan is a role model not only for young actresses, but for Filipinos as a whole. She humbly cares about those who are sick and in need. This was confirmed when she and Grace presented Christmas gift packs to 150 families at Manila North Cemetery to mark the 13th anniversary of FPJ’s death and fulfill his promise to the children, giving them toys before his death.
Also, it shows that we can fight our oppressors mercifully and never lose our faith in God.
