The Sangguniang Panlungsod lauded two centenarians by approving the proposal of Councilor Betty Lourdes F. Tabanda. Centenarians are Baguio residents who are one hundred years old or more. Centenarian Aurelia Tolete-Bambico of Upper QM Subdivision Barangay was born 12 November 2012 in Santo Domingo, Ilocos Sur and resided in Baguio for 61 years. Fondly called Mommy Auring, she is a mother of four whom she had raised as successful professionals imbued with christian values and civic consciousness. She will be remembered for her caring ways, generous acts and nobel deeds, the resolution cites.
The other centenarian is Mila Shania Rives Palispis born August 8, 1913 in Loakan, Baguio City. She and husband Ramon Palispis were blessed with four children. Widowed at the age of 32, she had to do the farm works left by her husband while attending to her young children. Being a solo parent did not hinder her from raising successful professionals, who later became public servants. Among the things she inculcated in the minds of her children were sharing in household chores and setting Sunday as church and family day. This lady who lived in the city for a hundred years credits having reached her age to her Creator, her children, eight grand children and ten great grand children.
In a related development, the proposed ordinance of Coun. Tabanda honoring the Centenarians of the City of Baguio was approved.
