Rest in peace: Bocaue mayor Joni Villanueva dies
Bocaue, Bulacan Mayor Joni Villanueva has passed away Thursday (May 28).
PDP-Laban executive director Ron Munsayac condoled with Joni’s family on Twitter.
“The PDPLABAN offers its condolences, sympathies, and prayers for our beloved partymate Mayor Joni Villanueva-Tugna. She has always been one of our exemplar local chief executives as evidenced by her dynamic leadership in Bocaue, Bulacan,” Munsayac said.
“We also enjoin our partymates & friends to pray for strength for the Villanueva family led by DS Bro. Eddie, Sen. Joel Villanueva, and Mayor Joni’s husband Cong. Sherwin Tugna,” he added.
Joni’s brother, Senator Joel Villanueva, posted a black photo without a caption.
Since May 22, Joel tweeted requests for prayers but didn’t elaborate. He only named Joni as the family member in need of prayer on May 27.
“Please pray for Joni please #LABAN #SiHesusAyDiyos #JesustheHealer #NothingIsImpossible,” the senator said.
“Ikaw ang Diyos ng Himala Dika nagbabago, ngayon at kailanman Kapangyarihan Mo’y kamangha-mangha Hesus ikaw ang Diyos ng Himala #LabanJoni #SamaSamangPanalangin #PrayersforMayorJoni #SiHesusAyDiyos,” Joel tweeted a few hours before Joni’s death.
The mayor’s death came barely two months after her mother, Dory, died.
