MILA DEL SOL in Giliw ko (1939) — IMDB.COM

There’s much to be said about living life as the Queen of the Golden Age of Philippine Cinema, of having a rags-to-riches story to starring in over 40 films from 1930s to 1940s, but to condense it in a few words, Mila del Sol’s life was a life well-lived.

“With the simple goal of buying her mother a pair of slippers and through the grace of our Lord, Lola Mila rose from the poverty of her younger years to become the queen of the Golden Age of Philippine Cinema,” Gus Tambunting, former Paranaque City representative and Mila del Sol’s grandson, said in a Facebook post announcing her passing on Nov. 10. She was 97.

“She was blessed to live a long life, a life well lived, and a life full of love. She lived a blessed and charmed life,” he added.
