An inquest has opened into the death of a 78-year-old grandmothe,r who died in the Grenfell Tower fire.
Ligaya Moore moved to London from the Philippines in 1974 and married a British man, Jim Moore, who died several years before the fire.
She had been living on the 21st floor of Grenfell Tower when it was destroyed on June 14.
Her inquest was opened and adjourned at Westminster Coroner’s Court on Wednesday (October 11).
She is the 68th victim of the Grenfell Tower fire to have their inquest opened and adjourned.
Senior Coroner Dr Fiona Wilcox said she believed there were still two more to be held, based on the missing person’s list.
Mrs Moore was identified through her dental records and her cause of death was consistent with the effects of fire.
A statement released by her family at the beginning of the month said: “43 years ago, Aunt Ligaya, DITE as we fondly called her, lived her dream - to live and work in London.
“She endured being away with family - not able to attend her mother’s funeral - but in exchange of all the loneliness and homesickness, she met the love of her life, Jim Moore, a British national, had a new family, acquired new friends, and built a new life in London.
“But the dream turned into nightmare on that fateful night of June 14 when the Grenfell Tower was consumed in flames."
The family continued: "At this time, she was already living by herself in this building, as her husband... passed away several years back.
“The jolly, bubbly person, the lady who loves to dance and who laughed her heart out, succumbed to a fire which turned her laughter into silence.”
