Our mom Juanita (Tanagon) Pulido was born on December 27, 1919 in the province of Batac, IIocos Norte, Philippines. She passed away in her sleep on October 18, 2014 surrounded by her family.

In 1954 she came to the United States with her sons to join Dad already in San Francisco. She immediately sought citizenship and obtained her high school diploma at night. She also obtained employment at the San Francisco Hilton Hotel where she was a sous chef for over thirty years.
