Perpetua “Poo” Hermosilla Falter

Perpetua “Poo” Hermosilla Falter of Dandy Valley Farm Nursery, Goldendale, was granted her angel wings on March 25, 2021, at 54 years of age. She was born June 27, 1966, in The Philippines.

Poo graduated with a college degree and worked in Taiwan for a high-tech company for six years. She then managed a wedding gown center owned by her family. She spoke four different languages and several Philippine dialects.

In 2008, she met Ronald Falter through a friend and then came to the U.S. on January 21, 2009. They were married on February 14, 2009. Poo earned her U.S. citizenship and Washington driver’s license. She managed Dandy Valley Farm Nursery, where she gained a community of friends. She greeted every customer with a cheerful smile and always remembered every customer and their past purchases from year to year. She enjoyed participating in the Community Day’s Parade and the Goldendale Home and Garden Show. She loved feeding birds, squirrels, and wild turkeys around the nursery. She spent everyday life in her nursery planting and taking care of her flowers. She wrote poetry and took pleasure in being a servant of God and gathering with her friends.

She leaves behind her husband of 12 years, Ron, as well as her eight older siblings: four brothers Alexander Hermosilla, Tito Hermosilla, Gedeon Hermosilla, and Benito Hermosilla; and four sisters Urcina Beseos, Aurea Isok, Dolores Gavaran, and Herminia Gavaran. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews.

Her final days were spent in The Philippines, her country of birth, surrounded by family and friends.

A quote that Poo lived by was, “Be happy with what you have, while working for what you want. Remember, a happy and successful life—begins with God and ends for God.”

There will be a Celebration of Life on May 8, 2021, at 2 p.m. at the Joan Frey Indoor Arena at the Klickitat County Fairgrounds, 903 N. Fairgrounds Rd, Goldendale, WA 98620. COVID precautions will be practiced.
