Rita Agacer Felias
Dec 26, 1933 – Oct 2, 2016
RITA AGACER-FELIAS was born December 26, 1933 in the town of Luna, La Union province, Philippines to the late Doroteo Agacer and Basilia Ramos. She fell asleep in death October 2, 2016 at 5:15 AM in Renton, Washington USA. She was 82 years old. She is the second from the oldest on the siblings of six; Jovita, Ricardo, Genoveva, Norma and Marieta.
She was fondly called “Galols” to the family and the Christian Congregation (In Ilonggo, “Pangga” or “Ga” as “Love” and Lols as “Lola” => Love Lola).
She was united in marriage to the late Herculano Curato Felias Sr., a native of Nasipit, Agusan Del Norte Province, on November 21, 1950. To this union, six children were born.
She dedicated her life in service to Jehovah God and was baptized as a Jehovah’s Witness on April 15, 1969. She remained faithful and served HIM most of her life. She’s been very active spreading the good news of Jehovah’s kingdom and His son Jesus-Christ.
Although she can barely walk at the latter part of her life, she still participates in numerous activities in the congregation such as conducting bible studies and return visits, attending kingdom hall meetings, assemblies and conventions. These activities and other Christian events brought forth an even stronger bond with our creator Jehovah God and His son Jesus Christ.
Family and friends will cherish the memories of her life they shared with Rita. But their greatest joy comes in knowing that in the future, this humble wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend will be welcomed back to life in a paradise earth and will live with the realization of her dreams of eternal life (Revelations 21:3,4).
Rita was preceded in death by her husband (Herculano Sr). She leaves to cherish her sweetest memories:
6 children, Maria Zenith of WA (husband Nestor Viceral), Estela “Bing” of TX (husband John Turner), Seng, Sergio “Boy” (wife Rosita Cleofas), Renato “Rene” of VA (wife Cecilia Casugay) and Maria Editha “Edith” (husband Samuel Padpad).
