She trained the first batch of med tech interns from the University of Santo Tomas. She was one of the top when she took the first board examination given by the Civil Service Commission.

Fe will also be lovingly remembered by her siblings, relatives and friends.
Our mother is strict, a disciplinarian and always put the needs of her family before her own. She is also a woman of strong faith and eats healthy that is why she does not take any maintenance medicine up to the time of her death.
Mommy, you will always be in our hearts and we will never forget you. We love you so much. Rest in peace.
