Gandia ex-mayor Orengo's mother dies aged 84
Former mayor of Gandia José Manuel Orengo's mother passed away on Friday at the age of 84, the socialist councillor himself has announced.
Rosa Pastor Escrivà, 84, who lived in the Benipeixcar neighbourhood, 'is now in heaven bearing aloft the saints she was so devoted to', her son said on his social media pages.
Her funeral was on Sunday afternoon with a mass in her local church.
Orengo was mayor of the La Safor district capital until the 2011 elections, and his party is now back in local government, led by mayoress Diana Morant, in coalition with leftwing independents Més Gandia.
