In Loving Memory

10/6/1957 - 11/20/2023

Age 66


Jennylynn Layugan Soriano passed away in Los Angeles, California, USA on November 20, 2023, at the age of 66. Born in Tuguegarao, Philippines in 1957 to Julio and Helen Layugan, she was the eldest of seven children. She was strict, assertive, and selfless, always looking out for her family’s well-being. Jennylynn met the love of her life, Donald Soriano, in high school. From there they became best friends and eventually married on January 15, 1983 and had two sons. She was a beloved mother and wife, and always ensured that there was food, making 4-5 different dishes per day. From empanadas, siopao, lumpiang shanghai, and embotido just to name a few of her favourites. Jennylynn was a nurse of over 45+ years, having worked in the Philippines, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Canada and the USA. Her nursing career consists of experience working in the ER, OR and most recently in the community. She advocated for her patients and many of them considered her part of their family. She loved spending time with family and enjoyed watching movies and basketball. She was a big fan of the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors, but always cheered for Stephen Curry every time the two teams faced each other. Jennylynn was a member of the Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ (4th Watch). She dedicated her life to serving the Lord and contributed as much as she could. She would take bible students out for a treat and purchased a whole lechon as her yearly tradition. Without a doubt, Jennylynn had a wonderfully generous heart and was always willing to go out of her way to help others. She was a giver and loved treating everyone to food. We will miss her contagious smile, and her relentless pursuit to help others. Jennylynn is survived by her husband Donald, her sons Christian and Clint, her three granddaughters, Chantelle, Jenelle, and Jazmin, and her siblings Julio, Jojo, Josely, and James.

She will be deeply missed.
