Ma Susie Ricote Jacaba

August 21, 1957February 11, 2020

Ma Susie R. Jacaba. 62, of Victoria, Texas passed away on Tuesday, February 11, 2020. Susie was born on August 21, 1957 to the late Geronimo Z. Jacaba and Prescila R. Jacaba in M’Lang Cotabato City, Philippines.

Susie is survived by her daughter, Ma Preslaine Neuville, her granddaughter, Prescilla Mae Neuville, her sister, Nona Terones and her two brothers, Augustin and Joel Jacaba.

Susie was a NICU nurse in the Philippines before immigrating to America in 2005, where she continued to work as a nurse for DeTar Hospital in the same department. She helped bring joy into peoples’ lives for thirty years as a nurse, fifteen in the Philippines and fifteen in Texas. After settling into the Victoria area, she did her best to help other Filipinos settle as they got here, in any which way she could. She was always ready to lend a hand. She was especially fond of her granddaughter, Prescilla – the two became inseparable partners-in-crime since their first meeting. Susie was also fond of gardening, with a green thumb that would produce flowers and vegetables just as colorful as her smile. She was also a fantastic cook, anything she made was always scrumptious and difficult to replicate with her flavor profile. Susie loved fishing, almost as much as she loved cooking them. Her love of quilting is where she was famously known as a visionary artist- producing beautiful quilts one after another with her lovely quilting sisters.

Many thanks go out to Jowel and Pauline Dizon (Tito Jowel & Tita Pau) for being there from the beginning up until the end, and many happy memories in the middle; Luisa De La Cruz (Tita Loi) for helping our family through both good times and bad times; Michelle Bonuz (Ate Mitch) and family for offering their company and their hospitality; to all those who we cannot list for there are too many.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be sent to the Hospice of South Texas Victoria Center of Compassion at 1005 Mallette Dr, Victoria, TX 77904 or https://hospice-vic.org

A Celebration of Life for Susie will be held on Saturday, February 15, 2020 with Visitation from 3:00pm – 4:00 pm, followed by Memorial Service at 4:00 pm, with Rev. Gabriel Bentil officiating. Visitation will resume after the memorial from 4:45 pm – 6:00 pm.
