Obituary for Minda Aceron

Minda N. Aceron, of Lake Orion, MI, passed away on May 8, 2019, after a battle with several health complications. She was 71 and preceded in death by her husband Fortunato. Her final days were spent in close company with her oldest son, Vincent, a source of love and comfort. In addition to Vincent, Minda leaves behind her younger son, Joseph, a Navy seaman, along with six grandchildren; Aiden, Brooklyn, Kennedy, Emersyn, Jamie, Jayden, and her oldest sister, Corazon. She is comforted in knowing that she leaves behind her sons and her grandchildren with their loving wives and mothers, Tracy and JuJu.

Minda was born February 20, 1948 in the Philippines. She immigrated to the United States in 1981 in search of a better life for her and her children. She found one, along the way picking up lifelong friends and a meaningful career as a dietitian working in hospitals in Brooklyn, NY.
In a way, Minda was defined by her work, but not in the traditional sense of a career-minded person. Rather, her work was a means to provide for her family. For Minda, everything else came second.

A woman with an infinitely warm heart and loving spirit, Minda was the very definition of self-sacrifice. The hours upon hours of overtime were performed solely in service of those she loved - Vincent and Joseph. They were her North Star, the immovable pillars that guided her in life.
She had a fun side as well. Known for her prowess at the slot machines in Atlantic City casinos, Minda was reliably one of the most successful players to take the three-hour trek down I-95 from “the city.” Dealers feared her. Gamblers wanted to be her. Her friends- well, they just came for the free buffets. And, the woman could play a mean game of Tetris. She was like Tommy with the pinball machine. A wizard if ever there was one.

Oh, and her pancit was nothing to sneeze at, either. Rice with banana sauce? Check.

But after the games and after she’d crack a few of her signature wry jokes, It always came back to family for Minda. In this sense, Minda will live on through her children, who have thriving families of their own, and share her sense of duty, loyalty, and protectiveness.

Minda’s life is one worth celebrating, not because she was wealthy, or had a fancy title, or because she sat in a cushy office. Rather, because her commitment to the things and people important to her was unwavering. She will always be loved and remembered for who she was inside and the values and love she has passed along to the next generation. Her family takes comfort in knowing she has gone to a better place. She will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
