Former Bohol vice governor Doctor Concepcion Lim passed away at the age of 82 on Sunday afternoon.
Lim’s death was confirmed by her niece Valencia Mayor Kat Lim in a Facebook post.
“You have been the voice and the strength of the family and you have extended your love to those who do not even share your bloodline,” said Kat.
“You were a great example of a leader who does everything for and in the name of love. You may be gone now but your memories and examples will live forever in our hearts,” she added.
Concepcion, born in 1937, was a native of Valencia and a former mayor of the town.
She was the first and only female vice governor of the province. She held office for two terms from 2010 until 2016.
Concepcion lost to Dionisio Balite in a tight vice-gubernatorial race in the 2016 general elections.
