Celebrity fortune teller and actress Madam Auring has passed away, according to her grandson who announced the sad news on Facebook.

The iconic fortune teller Aurea S. Erfelo, popularly known as Madam Auring, passed away on Friday, October 30, at the age of 80. The heartbreaking news was confirmed by her grandson Darly Simon Pecson on his official Facebook account.

Pecson began by recalling how he visited his grandmother a few days ago and remembering how she was rejoiced when her grandson brought her everything she needed.

“Grabe ang pinag daanan mo during your senior years pero you still worked hard for your family (us) i feel sad and happy,” he wrote. “Sad kasi i will never see you again, mga wisdom words mo, korni jokes, happy bondings, and pagkurot sa aking pisngi hanggang mamula.”

“Happy ako kasi you have done everything you could to make us feel loved the way you know how, your struggles are over. You fought your battles silently. Magkikita na kayo ni Mama sa kabilang buhay,” he went on. “You shall always be in our hearts. Love you.”

Madam Auring was first known for predicting the victory of Spain’s Amparo Muñoz in the Miss Universe 1974 pageant held in Manila, Philippines.

Because of that prediction, she became a popular fortune teller, reaching the ears of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali who sought her for advice on whether he would win his “Thrilla in Manila” boxing event in the country. 

An American fortune teller had previously predicted that Ali would lose against Joe Frazier at the event. However, it was Madam Auring who had correctly predicted what would be one of Ali’s legendary victories. Because of this, Ali gave her the nickname “Madam Auring.”

A lot of famous personalities, then, began seeking her for advice. Her rise to fame also gave her an acting career, having supporting roles in numerous films.

Rest in peace, Madam Auring!
