More than three months after her death, the body of Ferdinand E. Marcos' mother is still unburied as her son's dwindling band of followers maintains a wake in hopes that the government will allow him to return for her funeral. But many civic leaders here say that the time has come to place the body of Josefa Edralin-Marcos in the marble tomb prepared for her in the family cemetery in a swamp on the eastern edge of this town.

The government of President Corazon Aquino, who blames Ferdinand Marcos for her husband's slaying, has agreed to pay the mounting hospital bills of the 93-year-old mother Marcos left behind. Dona Josefa Edralin Marcos, apparently unaware that her son fled the country almost a month ago, has run up a bill of $55,679 in her penthouse suite at the Philippine Heart Center.

The 93-year-old mother of former President Ferdinand E. Marcos asked for her son this week, but friends told her he was away on a speaking engagement, a priest close to the family said. Five months after Marcos fled to Hawaii during a civilian-backed military revolt, his hospitalized mother, Josefa Edralin Marcos, has not been told that her son's 20-year rule has ended, according to Father Domingo Niebres and doctors at the suburban Manila hospital where she has been a patient for eight years.

The remains of Ferdinand E. Marcos' mother will be entombed in a refrigerated mausoleum this month--nearly two years after her death, the family mortician said today. Before the Sept. 28 death in Hawaii of the ousted and exiled president, the Marcos family had insisted that it would not bury his mother, Josefa Edralin Marcos, unless he was permitted to return home for the funeral.
