With profound sadness we announce the passing of Maria Anita Umbal Biason on June 24, 2020 in Houston, Texas. Annie was born on October 22, 1955 in Manila, Philippines to Rafael and Laura Umbal. Annie received her graduate nursing degree at Ortanez University in 1977. Shortly after graduating, she moved to Chicago in the United States. In 1980 she relocated to Baytown, Texas, where she practiced nursing for 38 years at Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital until her retirement in 2018. In March 1982, Annie married the love of her life Jaime Biason, and later that year, their daughter, Tiffany, was born.

Annie was a compassionate nurse who was well respected by her colleagues and patients. She had a passion for traveling and visited countries throughout North and South America, Europe, and Asia. She loved music, dancing, and reading. She was known for her generous and kind heart, and particularly for her distinct laugh.

Annie was a compassionate, kind, and sweet friend. I got to know her better during our HGB girlfriend trips to Costa Rica, Argentina, New York and Boston. We also got to reconnect during the mini High school reunions in Fallbrook, CA. I always loved the way she smiles and that memorable laughter that was uniquely hers. She made our trips fun & special, cracking jokes, preparing meals before anyone is awake, always thoughtful & loving. I will miss her dearly... & will forever hold her in my heart. Thank you for the memories.
Rest in heavenly peace in the loving arms of our Lord.
Sending my heartfelt prayers & sympathies to Jimmy, Tiffany & family, and the Umbal family.

The Great Almighty needed a luminous star to shine brightly in the darkness that envelops your love ones especially our grandchildren.
You will be the bright light to guide them through the tunnel with the sweet smile and love radiating through it, showing them the way and clearing the pathway of life.
Thank you and Jim for giving me another daughter to love and remember you by.
Rest in peace dearest Annie in the presence of our Lord.
May His love and welcoming embrace be a comfort to your family.
