Our beloved wife and mother, Andrea Alejo Dacquel, 79, passed away on October 4, 2019 with her husband and daughter by her side at Southern Hills Hospital.

She was born in Butir, Santa Maria, Illocosur, Philippines on May 3, 1940. After losing her parents as a young teenager, she took care of her siblings while attending St. Mary’s Academy in Santa Maria, Illocosur and the University of Santo Tomas, College of Nursing, where she began her nursing studies. She graduated from Arellano University in 1964, becoming a registered nurse.

She went to New York City in 1969 to work at Cornell Medical Center and eventually Brooklyn Veterans Affairs Hospital. And for 38 years, she spent a life devoted to caring and healing others at their most vulnerable time.

No matter the pursuit, she infused happiness into everything she did. Andrea’s passions included being an active part of the Catholic church community, ballroom dancing with friends, attending Zumba classes and health seminars, traveling, going on cruises, and being a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Despite her heart condition, she had always had a hunger for life and people.

She is preceded in death by her daughter Jocelyn, her parents Juana and Pablo, her brothers Loreto Alejo and Jaoquin Alejo, and her sister Nellie Calibuso.

She is survived by her husband of 56 years Teodorico, her daughter Amanda, her son Dennis, her granddaughters Jocelyn and Jenna, her daughter-in-law Eidel, her brother Rudy Alejo, her two sisters Leona Gines and Hermilina Dasalla, her brother-in-law Rey Dasalla, and many nieces and nephews.

Growing up at Jocelyn’s side I spent half my childhood in the Dacquel home. I can hear mom’s laughter —she would get hysterical and try to speak as she was laughing. Her beautiful smile would light up the room. I have so many vivid memories including me trying to figure out some Filipino words. May she rest in the sweetest peace reunited with Jo. The thought of their reunion makes my heart hurt less. My love to all the family.

The last time I saw aunt Andrea was at the assisted living place where my grandma (Alice Alejo) lived (1999). I was visiting my grandma and all of a sudden I turned around and in walked uncle Ted,aunt Andrea ,Dennis and sister.
I remember when my papa (Alipio Alejo) was in the hospital sick and aunt Andrea came to Maryland and made Filipino food for all of us.
Another memory I have is at my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. I have a picture of me,my sisters (Dawn and Marlena), Ben (Tonkel) , Dennis and Jocelyn.
I'm so sorry to hear Aunt Andrea passed. My thoughts and prayers go to Uncle Ted and family.

Angie whom we met at the 24 hour Fitness Gym was a very sweet friendly, smart lady that is a go getter. A very knowledgeable person who shares with us several issues that we should know or be aware of. She made it a point to be around in the last gatherings we had even though she hasn’t been feeling very well which just showed how she valued our company and friendship.

She surely will be missed by all of us.

My Auntie Andrea may you rest in peace. I too have fond memories of you (Uncle Ted and the kids when they were much younger) coming to visit us when I was a you girl and lived in Virginia (with my Mom - Dolores Alejo Tonkel) and Tiffany and Ben. Such a fun vacation as well when we stayed at your home in Staten Island, New York in the mid 70's. My Lolo Alipio Alejo just loved taking us to see you and the family. I am so happy I was able to visit with you @ Auntie Leona's Birthday Party in 2015 and watching you and Uncle Ted dance.

Our memories of Andrea, Ted, Jocelyn and Dennis at their home on Staten Island are wonderful memories. Being in the kitchen with Andrea as she cooked Filipino food was inspiring and she shared many of her recipes with us (we will think of her whenever we prepare them)

Our condolences to Ted and family, she surely will be missed. Just glad we got to see her at Auntie Leona's 95th birthday party in San Jose.
