Marie Paz Tantengco of Waukegan, Illinois formerly of Betis, Guagua, Pampanga, Philippines passed away at Vista East Medical Center in Waukegan on Sunday, May 28, 2017 at the age of 89.

Survived by sons Jesus (Linda) Tantengco; Dante (Leonora) Tantengco; Teodulfo (Luz) Tantengco; Fred (Myrna) Tantengco; Teresito (Myla) Tantengco; 1 daughter Whil (Harvey) Herrington; 1 brother Carlos

Marie was preceded in death by her parents Alejandro and Barbara (Carreon) Maglalang; 1 brother Ponciano Maglalang; 2 sisters Luz (Ernesto) Tiopengco and Aurora Maglalang who passed away as a young child.

Marie came to the United States in 1989. She was born in Parang, Cotabato, Philippines. She was a very witty, decisive woman. Above all, she was loving to all but especially her family. Prior to having children, Marie was an elementary school teacher until she started her own family when she decided to stay home to raise her children. She was very generous with her time and treasures. Marie would give to others by feeding the underprivileged; inviting them into her home and providing clothes to those in need. Later in life, Marie decided that she enjoyed cooking so much that she enrolled into Culinary School.
It was not uncommon for Marie to prepare banquets by herself. In addition to cooking, Marie enjoyed crocheting, sewing, embroidery, cosmetology, and dressmaking. She sang in the church choir with her husband and there were many nights spent karaokeing!
