Per Rhodora's wishes there will not be a service. The families will be gathering on future dates to Celebrate the joyful life of Rhodora.
Rhodora Francisca "CHIP"(Aquino) Mann succumbed to cancer on July 29, 2022. Rhodora was born on July 7, 1953 at Madigan Army Hospital, Ft. Lewis, WA, the daughter of Victor Aquino Sr and Estelita Aquino. She grew up in Lakewood and graduated from Clover Park High in 1971. She graduated from Western Washington University in 1978, worked briefly for Fast Eddie's Tavern, Seattle First National Bank and then began a long and distinguished career as a social worker for DSHS. She retired in 2016 as a Civil Investigator for Adult Protective Services. Rhodora is survived by her son Jordan Mann, former husband Ranny Mann, sister Emily Patterson, husband Ray, sister Florence McGlaughlin, husband Alan, brother Victor Aquino Jr, spouse Mary, nephews Brandon and Billy Patterson, nephews Bryan and Nathan McGlaughlin, nephew Max Aquino, niece Flannery Wilcox and many other family members.
Rhodora lived a full, active, and meaningful life. She loved to travel, was an avid runner, golfer, competitive tennis player, pleasure boater, artist, musician/singer and she was a great dancer! She thoroughly enjoyed being with family and friends. She was kind, optimistic, and humorous. She had a great laugh that brightened whatever room she was in. She was the only one in the family that could actually make lumpia almost as good as her mom's. And she was the bravest of fighters against the disease that finally took her.
The family would like to thank Whatcom Hospice, cna Emily & cna LL for ALL of their caring efforts and support.
