ANACORETA CHUA TACLAY

Anacoreta Chua Taclay was born on April 4, 1929 in Calapan, Oriental, Mindoro, Philippines to Anacleta Alcuran Ambas and Francisco Selyo Chua. She was the oldest daughter of eight children.

Nene joined her loving husband Louis G. Taclay, her parents, and her siblings (Juanito, Reynaldo, Lourdes, Expectacion, & Jose), and her brother and sister in law (Carling & Ising) on her 90th birthday (April 4, 2019).

She is survived by her sisters Josefa and Eufrosina; her brother-in-law Garry, her son/nephew Carlos, nephews (Cyr, Phil, Imix, & Eddie), nieces (Gail, Farrah-Marisa, Jane, Lorna, Roxanne, Yasmin, Ruth, Thelma, & Pat), grandchildren (Jackie, Tre, Lily, Mia, Ela-Lucia, & Anson), Bertha, and Sister Nor.

Ann was a pioneer in her career as an educator, principal, and School Superintendent. She received a full scholarship to UCLA and University of Washington from USAID after graduating from Philippines Normal College, Ateneo de Manila, and the University of the Philippines. She was a beloved Elementary school teacher in the Renton School District – serving at Hillcrest and Kennydale Elementary Schools.

Blissfully married to Uncle Louis, a grand Knight of Columbus – both were devout Catholics who served at St Anthony’s Parish in Renton for decades. They travelled the world on Catholic pilgrimages and prayed the rosary everyday. Auntie Nene had a special devotion to our Lady’s Memorare prayer; which she asked us to pray before any endeavor.

Auntie Nene will be deeply missed by her family, co- teachers, and her many friends. God bless her soul.

Funeral Mass will be held in St Anthony’s Parish in Renton on Friday, April 12 at 10:00 AM followed by burial services at Greenwood Memorial at noon.
