Justina Lagmay Soliven

October 13, 1923 ~ April 28, 2018 (age 94)

Justina Soliven passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on April 28, 2018 at the age of 94.  Justina’s husband, Larry Soliven, passed away 33 years ago. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She is survived by her two sons: Jesse (Alice) and Ben (Mary); her six grandchildren: Larry (Khanh), Vanessa (Domenico), Yvette (Daniel), Kyle, Marissa (Jonathan), and Alana; and her five great-grandchildren: Sofia, Charlotte, Abby, Marco, and Logan. 

She spent her years caring for her two sons and all six of her grandchildren. Justina always had a love for gardening and cooking. Her greatest passion, aside from her grandchildren, was watching WWE Raw (wrestling) every Monday night. She could tell you who each wrestler was and their background. Her favorite wrestler was John Cena, who she called “America’s Sweetheart.” 

Justina’s family will always remember her as the strongest, most loving, and funniest woman. 

Viewing will begin at 10:15am on Thursday, May 3, 2018 at Our Lady of Refuge in Castroville. Mass will follow at 11:00am. There will be a lunch at the hall following the service while the family has a private committal.  Please send flowers to Our Lady of Refuge in Castroville, CA.
