And Heaven Gains Another Beautiful Boholana Angel

November opened in a somber mood for Your Roving Eye’s family. On All Souls Day, at three o’clock pm, Ate Marcel Gatal- Diego, the eldest child in our family lost in her three- year battle with breast cancer that was complicated by lung cancer.

Marcel, a top radio newscaster and FM DJ of KISS 102.3 FM and DYRD 1161 AM during her college days is survived by husband Tony Diego, children Kenneth & Katrina, Mama Fely, brothers, sisters and relatives. She was 53 years old.

A certified beauty, she was Hiyas ng Silangan- Bohol 1982. She represented the province in the 1982 Hiyas ng Silangan- Philippines national finals where she was named Miss Talent and made it as a Top Ten Finalist.
