Gokongwei's wife dies a week later

Exactly one week after her husband passed away, Elizabeth Gokongwei followed soon after.

Last November 9, billionaire and philanthropist John Gokongwei Jr. died at the age of 93. The business tycoon's wife passed away at 85.

"Our mother, Elizabeth Yu Gokongwei, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 16, 2019, one week after the death of our father, John Gokongwei, Jr., her husband of 61 years," the family said in a statement.

The wake for the Gokongwei matriarch will be a private one.
