Obituary

Milagros Aparentado (nee: Castillo), age 88, of Rosedale, MD, passed away peacefully on January 11, 2023, surrounded by her family.  Beloved wife of 60 yrs to Rodolfo B. Aparentado; Devoted mother to Raymond Aparentado and his wife Katherine, Joan Barrett and her husband John, Romil Aparentado and his wife Tiffanie, Rico Aparentado and his wife Erica, and the late Monica Aparentado; Dear sister to Jovito Castillo, Maria Lopez, the late Constantino Castillo, and the late Lourdes Corotan; Loving grandmother to Joshua Harnois, Evan Aparentado, Noah Aparentado, Jake Barrett, Anya Aparentado and Joshua Aparentado, Lori Biddle, Kyle Aparentado and Eric Aparentado; Proud great grandmother to Rowan Aparentado and Ochre Aparentado, and Enzo Biddle.

Born in Bagabag, Nueva Vizcaya-Philippines, Mila earned a BSN from the Manila Central Univ. - College of Nursing. In the early 70’s, Mila was one of eight nurses selected from hundreds of applicants for a one-year contract in Vidalia, GA. So, with five children and a husband, she made the ultimate sacrifice to leave her family behind in the Philippines to pursue the American dream. By 1976, she was able to petition her family to join her in Baltimore, MD. She went on to work and retire from Johns Hopkins Hospital after 30+ yrs of working in various departments.

After retiring, she became active in community service and fundraising with the Knights of Columbus. Her love of singing led her to join the Santo Nino choir and the Archdiocesan Filipino Choir. She was a devout Catholic who often led the rosary and group prayers.

“Manang” Mila will fondly be remembered for her friendly nature, fashion sense, and being a huge sports fan. Whether it was pro wrestling, Oriole baseball or Ravens football, she kept records of all the scores and players. Her love of making desserts, pancit and lumpia will be missed at the numerous gatherings she truly enjoyed. 

Milagros, meaning “miracle “, prayed for one until the end. She asked everyone to pray for her and do the rosary daily. She believed in the “Four Keys to Heaven”. God truly gained an angel.

In lieu of flowers kindly consider making a donation in Milagro’s name to The Church of Annunciation 5212 McCormick Ave, Baltimore, MD 21206 or to St. Clement Mary Hofbauer Church 1212 Chesaco Ave, Baltimore, MD 21237
