Myrna Calampiano Lunasin, 80, departed this life to be with our Lord on Wednesday, July 5, 2023, in Norfolk, Virginia. She was born on September 29,1942, to Norberto and Marcelina Calampiano in Barangay San Ignacio, San Pablo City, Laguna, Philippines.

Myrna graduated from Far Eastern University in Manila, Philippines and immigrated to the United States in 1965. In 1967, she married her husband, Nestor Agahan Lunasin. A devoted military spouse and mother, Myrna lived in New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, and Ohio, in addition to Virginia.

She had a long career as a registered nurse, caring for a multitude of patients in various hospitals and nursing homes. Myrna found great joy in doting on her three grandchildren, creating delicious dishes for her family, and tending to her collection of plants.

She will be remembered as a loving and caring person, a generous spirit, and a woman of genuine faith. In addition to being predeceased by her parents, Myrna was predeceased by her brother, Noli Calampiano; her sister, Adora Castillo; her daughter, Michelle Lunasin; and her loving husband of 54 years, Nestor.

Myrna Calampiano Lunasin is the third Lunasin wife to pass away in four months, alongside my mother Delia Duran Lunasin in April, and Auntie Doris Delago Lunasin in May. This will definitely be a year post-COVID I will never forget. Auntie Myrna, excuse me, “Ate” Myrna, was the first to make clear to me that it is proper to address her as “Ate”, not Auntie. Because her husband Kuya Nestor, is my second cousin, not my second uncle, it’s only appropriate. I’ve always been conditioned to respectfully refer to any older related female family member or even a friend, as auntie. It’s just a filipino kind of thing. I admire Ate Myrna speaking out her mind without hesitation, a quality you’d think I’d be doing as a mobile DJ, but no, I continue to hesitate, sometimes missing out to speak out one on one, or publicly. I’d like to think right now speaking freely without hesitation is a trait I’ve learned from Ate Myrna, and will forever be grateful for this. Ate Myrna was always thoughtful, and letting me know things, and never missing the opportunity to let me know all these decades I’ve known her. I spoke up here back in April regarding my mother. I spoke up here back in 2021 regarding Kuya Nestor. Both times and now, I speak of regarding family, and how this keeps us together. Ever since my dad, Ricardo Rebullar Lunasin passed away in 1980, I continue to learn wonderful new things like yesterday, speaking with Ricardo Agahan Lunasin, that his nickname is also “Carding” just like my dad, which I thought was only my dad the whole time. I am so happy to see Uncle Rick, excuse me, Kuya Carding. It’s no hidden secret that I have been disengaged with my side of the Lunasin family for many decades. However as the many years have passed, I have always remained closely connected with Nestor’s side of the Lunasin family. Since the 70’s, I’ve always seen Ate Myrna from time to time, decade to decade, to always address me and my family with acknowledgement, that I only wish I can continue with the rest of you. Ate Myrna is truly an auntie that I will never forget with her openness, her thoughtful gestures, and the glue that keeps on keeping our Lunasin family together always…
