Dr. Leonor Feliciano, who came to the United States to complete her medical training and succeeded in teaching thousands about Philippine culture, pride and contributions, died Saturday of breast cancer at her home in Creve Coeur. She was 66.
She had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. Three days before her death she had written, "I have lived my life out loud and with happiness."
Her daughter, Sonjie Solomon, confirmed that assessment.
Mass will be celebrated for Dr. Feliciano at St. Monica Catholic Church on Friday morning.
