Carmelita's Story

CALAIS - Carmelita "Carmen" Losmagos Diffin, 74, passed away Tuesday, December 1, 2015. Carmen was born in Paranaque Rizal, Philippines, on December 19, 1940, daughter of the late Gonzalo and Aurelia Losmagos.

Carmen was passionate about her family and friends. She had great love for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Carmen was lovingly referred to as "Nana" or "Ate" by those closest to her. Nana loved to travel and cook, and will be remembered by many for her now famous Lumpia. For all those that were lucky enough to be part of her life, we will always remember her for her humor, love, kindness, and grace.
