My name is Marcelina (Cely) Batin Dumlao, married to Arvin Arcia Dumlao, the son, of the late Ernesto, and Rosita Dumlao.
My husband and I together with our three children: 1) Minerva/PeterDan Mabalot, with children AJay, CeAi, and TyCy; 2) Melissa/Ernesto Vasquez, son, Elijah. 3)Arthur, live in San Jose, California.
For sixteen years, we had many wonderful memories with Mamang, while our children were growing up. We brought Mamang with us, wherever we had family vacation especially during summer time such as:
1. In early 1990s, we went to Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood, San Diego Zoo, Sea World. She had fun joining us in various rides.
2. In mid 1990s, we traveled in Oahu, Hawaii for a couple of times; first we visited my parents Angel and Esperanza Batin, and my Sister Socorro Batin Cardona and family, and during my father’s retirement party.
3. We traveled to Winnipeg Canada, attended the wedding of my best friend’s (Mila Espiritu Montifar) daughter, Jennifer Montifar.
4. In 2000, we drove from San Jose, CA to Corpus Christi Texas, to visit my sister-in-law Marilyn Dumlao Limos, and her family.
5. My children were very lucky, their Grandma Rose attended all their Elementary, Middle School, HS, graduations here in San Jose, and Melissa’s college graduation in Santa Barbara, CA.
We enjoyed living with my mother-in-law, who was a very kind, caring, loving, mother, and Grandmother. She was very friendly and thoughtful to everyone. She enjoyed dancing at the Sampaguita Seniors club, which she and five of her friends founded, back in the mid-1990s.
Dearest Mamang, we will miss you. You always have a place in our hearts, we love you very much. Our heartfelt, and sincere THANK YOU for all the help and support you have extended to me and my family. We hope you understand, only Dong (Arvin), was able to travel to attend the live family viewing, because of the country’s current situation pandemic, and family needs at home in San Jose.

I have a memory of Grandpa Ernesto Dumlao and Uncle Melvin when I was about 4 years old in San Clemente Tarlac, Philippines. My last visit with Grandma Rose was the morning of 8/31/2020 in Corpus Christi, Texas when I visited for our cousin Mark's memorial service held on 8/29/2020. Grandma always had a smile on her face. She always asked me "when are you getting married", then when I got married, she asked "where is your husband and when are you having a baby". On 10/6/2018, we held Grandma's 99.9 birthday party where she finally met my husband in our home in Manteca, California. Grandma you will always be in our hearts and know you are now in heaven with Jesus Christ, Grandpa Erning, Uncle Melvin, Mark, Elijah and all of our relatives from San Clemente, Tarlac. Rest in peace Grandma Rose. We love you always..Beth and Ruben

When We were still in San Clemente, Tarlac, Mamang wakes me up at 4:00 in the morning to go to the butcher place to buy fresh cow’s meat. We used to go that early so we’re sure that the meat is realy fresh. Then they prepare kilawen (fresh meat)which is also the favorite of Papang too.
Then every sunday, We go to the market in Camiling, about 7 km away to buy fresh vegetables and other stuff. We also buy buro (salted fish) which is everybody’s favorite. Almost all the vendors knew Mamang.
These are some memories I can’t forget. We Miss you and We Love you. Joselyn Antiporda

When we were still in Philippines, Grandma Rose would visit us from the USA once in awhile, and bring us pasalubongs like toblerons, spam, vienna sausages, nesquick, cereals that we are here in the US, I was like “ohhh look Grandma gets them all from Costco, haha.”
There were times when I was doing homework with her, she would always correct the way I’m holding my pen/pencil as I write. I’m thankful for that, as my hand writing is very legible, to the point that I became a teachers pet in school (writing things on the board for our teachers) , and currently even at work if I needed to write something down on the board or anything to label (even if we have a label maker! Haha) So, thank you Grandma Rose. Also, I don’t know why I didn’t forget when I was a kid, we had macaroni soup for lunch, and I didn’t want mine with evaporated milk, but Grandma insist to put milk on mine, so I cried so hard. And Auntie Soling was there with us at that time and gave me a new one instead, without milk, haha.
Also, my family would always tell me I’m “argud” (I think that’s how it spells) like Grandama. As we both like anything for beauty, hair, nails, jewelries, shoes, clothes. She would always give me stuff from her collections.
Grandma Rose, the night before your viewing, I had a dream with our baby Elijah and I was carrying him with our car seat. I sat him down on the floor and told him, “Let’s wait here, Grandma Rose viewing is coming.” I’m glad you have met him already in you Grandma Rose!!! Till we meet again.

Sorry to hear of Tiyang Rosing passing away.  Her century of life in this world is something to be marveled. God blessed her with a long and fruitful life, one that very few have ever lived to experience.  I cannot forget the time she took care of me as a kid in our first house in kamuning, Quezon City. I felt like I was her first borne child!  Thank you Tia Rosing for all the fond memories. Thanks to God for making her part of our lives. I am sure we'll all find comfort in knowing that she'll be resting in peace in heaven with the Lord.
