In 2001, she was appointed Dagupan City Heritage commissioner, a role that took her to Pangasinan often and helped her provincemates become conscious and proud of their heritage.

She is survived by husband Alfredo, children Erick, Avid and Hannah Mutya L Hornstein and grandchild Lumen Habi. Her siblings are Samuel, Bok, Tess and Bing. Her ash was brought home at the Crisologo residence in Tapuac Dagupan City before interment on Sunday, September at 10 a.m. at the Eternal Gardens.
