MANILA, Philippines — Corazon Abalos, the wife of former Commission on Elections (Comelec) chairman Benjamin Abalos Sr. and mother of Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Benhur Abalos has died.

This was confirmed by her granddaughter Mandaluyong City Councilor Charisse Marie Abalos-Vargas in a Facebook post on Monday evening.

“Mama Cora, you were strength personified. Wala ang KKM, wala ang Mandaluyong Girl Scouts, if you didn’t build its foundations. Maraming nagmamahal sa inyo dahil alam nila na minahal mo din sila,” Abalos-Vargas said.

The Mandaluyong City councilor did not say what caused Corazon’s death, but it was reported last July 2020 that she contracted the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) along with other members of the Abalos family.
