Anecita Rosario Quitalig was born on April 2, 1932. She grew up in San Carlos, Pangasinan, Republic of the Philippines. She was the daughter of Henry and Laureana Agbuya. She had an older brother, Felicisimo. On April 26, 1959, she married William Soriano Quitalig (son of Felipe and Aurilla) in San Carlos, Pangasinan. Anecita and William have four children: Anthony (deceased), Mary Jane, William Jr, and Elizabeth and five grandsons: Kenneth, Kameron, Jacob, Jackson, and Joshua.

Her husband William joined the U.S. Navy in 1954. In 1960, Anecita immigrated to the United States. In 1968, Anecita, William and their children settled in Miliptas, CA. To help support her family, Anecita worked as an electronics assembler at Spectra-Physics in Mountain View, CA from 1971 until her retirement in 1991. She was very skilled in her work. Being a Navy wife was very challenging for Anecita, being both mother and father to her children while her husband was away on duty.

Anecita was very dedicated to her family. She managed the household and made sure that all her children graduated from college. She was adamant that higher education was necessary for her family to succeed and prosper. Anecita was tireless in providing for her family.

Anecita loved to express her love to family and friends through her food. Although it was a lot of work, she thoroughly enjoyed hosting gatherings at her house for birthdays, holidays, and special events. She always had plenty of food and wanted to share her food as symbol of her love for everyone.

Both Anecita and William were devout Catholics. They regularly attended mass and made contributions to the Church and religious organizations. After their children graduated from college, Anecita and William, along with many relatives and friends, made numerous trips to Europe, led by Father Noel. Among the places visited were the Vatican, Jerusalem, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Norway, Denmark, and Russia.

Anecita dearly loved her children and grandchildren. Her greatest love was for her beloved husband William. For years, she cared for him until his illness took him from her. Anecita and William were married for more than 51 blessed years. It is because of Anecitas's love for family and friends that she will dearly be missed by all who knew her.

Dear Bill, Mary and Lisa,

During the times that your mom dropped by our house, if she didn't bring a generous amount of food, she always brought a warm smile and receptive heart.

May each of you be surrounded and comforted with family, friends and loved ones during this time of loss.
Given time, may your sorrow be replaced with the joy of treasured memories and eternal spirit of your beloved mother.

With deepest sympathy and love,
Eunice Cerezo

Dear Bill, MaryJane and Lisa,

Your mom was a great lady. When I was in the 4th grade at Zanker School, I was very sick with the flu and your mom picked me up that morning and put me in Bill's bed and comforted me like my mom would. Your mom was the point of contact that my mom designated to care for us if my mom couldn't make. Anyways your mom cooked a nice lunch for me (hot soup, chips and sandwichs), checked on me often, rubbed vicks on my feet and let me watch "Leave it to Beaver" on TV. She was so caring. I loved your mom so much as if she were my mom and I'll never forgot what she did for me that one winter day. Please know I'm thinking of you all and especially your mom.

I love you guys...blessings.

Dear Maryjane, Bill and Lisa:

Your mother was such a dear soul to our family. My mom and your mom could talk all day long on the telephone and I would hear my mom laugh and giggle like a teenager! I'm sure they're both sharing wonderful conversations again in heaven. Auntie also baby sat me when I was young. She taught me how to tie my shoelaces. One time I tied them so tight she had to wait until Uncle came home from work to untie them for me. Then he taught me the "two-loop" trick :-). Your Dad always had chiclets for me when he came home. To be safe, your mom always had MaryJane or Bill walk me to school. I'm glad our parents can once again be reunited in heaven and am thankful for the memories we share together as family. Love, Amelia

Dear Bill, Mary and Lisa,

It is with profound sorrow that we heard of Auntie Annie’s passing. Auntie Annie and Uncle were our Godparents at our wedding.

As we honor and celebrate Auntie Annie’s life, we will cherish many fond memories of your beautiful Mother. She has showered us with her kindness, generosity and love throughout the years. God bless her lovely soul and abundant blessings to all of you.

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Eternal rest grant unto Anecita Quitalig, Dear Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her beautiful soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Our heartfelt sympathy to Bill, Mary and Lisa,
Love,
Carolyn and John Vargas
