The well-respected and unassuming former chief executive of the town left behind her footprints in good local governance.

She held the mayoralty post for three consecutive terms. Her vocal intention of returning to public service during the 2016 local elections though was not successful.

The social media posts and comments on her account show proof that she is respected, dearly missed and loved.

Mrs. Yu will also be recalled as the first woman ever to have been elected mayor of the town.

She was the widow of Dr. Domingo Yu, former President and member of the Board of Directors of Camarines Sur II Electric Cooperative (CASURECO II).
