Elaine Cuneta, the mother of actress Sharon Cuneta, passed away on Wednesday, November 5. She was 79.

“Hi. I just lost the love of my life today. My Mita will forever be the BEST GRANDMA EVER. She will forever be with me. I love you, my Mita,” posted her granddaughter KC Concepcion on Twitter past 1p.m.

“My grandma will forever be my inspiration. She loved life, gave us all beautiful adventures. She knew me more than I knew myself. #SuperLola,” she added.

Earlier in the day, Concepcion posted a request for prayers as Elaine had to undergo “a make-or-break” surgery within the day.

Elaine was an actress in the ’50s, and was also a former beauty queen and singer. She was married to former Pasay City Mayor Pablo Cuneta.
