The mother of ousted Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos died today after appealing to President Corazon Aquino to allow her son to return from exile in Hawaii as her "dying wish." Josefa Edralin-Marcos had been hospitalized since Sunday with pneumonia, diabetes and kidney failure. She died as Aquino convened her Cabinet's "crisis committee" to consider the request by Mrs. Edralin-Marcos to be allowed to see her son one last time.

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.

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.

Thousands of anti-government Filipinos demonstrated in Manila to demand that President Corazon Aquino allow Ferdinand E. Marcos to return from exile in Hawaii to bury his mother, Josefa Edralin Marcos, who died May 4. The demonstrators held an all-night rally, but their numbers dwindled, and they dispersed peacefully hours before the dawn deadline set by police for them to clear a bridge they had occupied near the presidential palace.
