Cristeta, the youngest of seven siblings, was born on June 18, 1923 in Laoag, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. She survived with her family the Japanese occupation of the Philippines during WW II. In post-war Philippines she enjoyed her work as a primary school teacher. She immigrated to San Francisco, CA in 1950 and lived with her eldest sister and brother in-law. She met and married Frank in San Francisco and together they raised their three daughters in the neighborhood now known as Cole Valley where they were homeowners for sixty years.
The Family wishes to express deep thanks to the caregivers of Nobis Care Home, in San Francisco's Outer Richmond neighborhood, for generously caring for Cristeta for nine years. The caregivers maintained an atmosphere that lovingly nourished Cristeta's body and generously supported her spiritual life.
Cristeta will be dearly remembered by all those who had the chance to share their lives with her.
