Soledad Pobre DeAsis Fortin, lovingly called “Inang” by her family and loved ones, was born on January 16, 1928, in San Narciso, Zambales, Philippines, to Leopoldo and Miguela Pobre DeAsis. She was one of ten children.

She was united in holy matrimony to the love of her life, Pedrito Fortin, on November 16 of 1947. This union was blessed with four children. Pedrito preceded her in death in October of 1988.

Inang was a delightfully cheerful and fiercely devoted wife and mother who dedicated her life to caring for her loved ones. Always putting others before herself, her countless sacrifices enabled her children to finish school, travel and settle abroad, and in turn and with gratitude, provide for her and petition her to come to the United States in 1989.

Inang was a member of the Metropolitan Seventh-Day Adventist Church of Missouri City, Texas. As a result of her witty humor and ever-present smile, she was loved by many. The memory of her contagious laughter and outgoing spirit will forever remain in the lives of all who knew her. She quietly departed this life Sunday, December 23, 2018, peacefully in her sleep at home in Houston, Texas. She is preceded in death by her husband, Pedrito, and her grandson, Erdal.

Her beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her children: Arsenio (Archie) Fortin, James George Fortin, Clarita (Clair) Fortin Cagampang, and Sean Seneco (Senen) Fortin; daughters-in-law Jocelyn (Joy) Fortin and Loida Fortin; son-in-law Teodoro (Ted) Cagampang; eleven grandchildren: Christine Fortin Balmaceda, Ronald Fortin, Arlene Cagampang Domingo, Jillian Fortin, Joanna Fortin Chan, Robert James Fortin, Richie Chris (Uchi Boy) Fortin, Mark Fortin, Charmina Dela Peña Somogod, John Arsenious (Jonar) Dela Peña, and Audrey Rafaella Fortin; great-grandchildren Addy Balmaceda, Alyssa Balmaceda, Ariana Domingo, Aleyna Domingo, Aliyah Domingo, Jean Christopher Fortin, Angelica Fortin, Cookie Fortin, Marco Fortin, Mina Fortin, and Dylan Matteo Somogod; brother Leopoldo DeAsis, Jr.; devoted nieces and nephews: Pres and Norma Arañas, Bill and Elsie Wu, Philip Fortin, Virgilio and Virginia Fortin, and Rolando and Carmen Fortin; and a host of devoted cousins, loved ones, and friends.
