Biography

The love of a mother is the greatest love we can ever ask for. For this love is not only unconditional, but fair, forgiving, caring, teaching, and most of all comforting. Our mother’s love is something that we can hold on to, and lean on to at times when our world seems to fall apart. A mother’s love is irreplaceable, that is why if we lose our mother, the pain could be unbearable.

Felicitas Evangeline Rimorin Molanida Delinila, known to us as “Ellen” was born to the late Salvador
Molanida Sr. and Trinidad Rimorin Molanida on November 23, 1946 at Ballay, Bauang La Union. She is the youngest of four siblings and she was schooled at Bauang and San Fernando during her elementary and high school years. She graduated at University of Baguio with a degree of Bachelor of Arts Bachelor of Science in Education (AB BSE) and started her teaching career at Saint Louis Center Girls High Department during the late 70’s and had 27 years of passionate and fruitful teaching. Ellen was the kind of person you can easily get along with. Her positive and cheerful aura, made her one of the well-loved teachers in the history of Girl’s High. She mainly handled second year students, teaching History and Technology and Home Economics (T.H.E.).
Her students were very close to her, as she was very approachable and helpful to them. They just simply loved her. Her teaching of history never bored her class, because she knew exactly how to keep the classroom atmosphere alive. She was good at cracking jokes and telling stories, and sometimes some of her students thought that her stories is a part of the subject matter. There were a number of students that really became so close to her. They became friends, they were hanging out all the time. The school administration even called their attention because of this unusual student and teacher relationship that really lasted until now. They were practically “barcadas”, and they would even visit Ellen’s house to help her in the general cleaning of the house.
Ellen was known to be a disciplinarian. At times she was very strict, but really knows the limit of her strictness so as not to hurt the feelings of her students and her children.
A part from being an educator, Ellen also loves cooking. She would always love to cook and prepare the best meal for her family. Her macaroni fruit salad and potato salad is just simply and undeniably delightful, one of the best, a person could ever taste. Her talent and passion in cooking was mainly inspired by her late parents, as both of them were celebrated cooks and bakers at Shipside Poro, during their time. Ellen also loves gardening, watching pageants and listening to music. Although she was frustrated in learning the piano, she was very good in playing the accordion. And she often times play during programs and activities at school. She could also drive both a motorcycle and a manual vehicle. And she usually drives a jeep ( Toyota tamaraw) as her service in going to school.
Mom is survived by two of us and two grand children as well us relatives and friends. To Our dear mama Ellen, we, her family was the most important thing in her life. Her Family was more than an inspiration, it is where she drew her strength and left her legacy. She struggled and battled her illness for several months. Yet through it all, her love and caring for her family was the very foundation and cornerstone of her life. And most important of all, her faith in God never faltered. And until the end, she firmly believed in positivity, that God has a greater and better purpose for us all.
And to us, her family, friends and relatives. This is the greatest legacy our mom could leave us. This is a wonderful example to follow. A life well lived. And a love wholehearted shared.
