Nanay Anabelle is a jolly, very approachable person of Purok I Liwa Liwa, Bolinao, Pangasinan. She is well loved by her center members, neighbors and relatives as she always makes happy talks with them and creating fond memories. She joined TSPI in September 7, 2012 where she managed her sari sari store and small piggery business.
No one knew that Nanay Anabelle was in pain as she was happily talking to her neighbors on January 18, 2021. Little did they know that it will be the last time that they will see Nanay Anabelle as she was immediately rushed to the hospital. She died on the same day due to myocardial infarction or commonly known as heart attack.
“Ganun pala ang pakiramdam ng biglaan pagkawala ng nag-i isang ina. Magkahalong lungkot at takot ang aming naramdam habang itinatakbo namin siya sa Ospital at inaagapan ng paunang lunas”.
(I now understand the feeling of losing a mother. There was a mixed feeling of fear and deep sadness while we brought her to the hospital.) These were the words uttered by his son, John Anthony Olarte, former Account Officer of Bolinao Branch. It was a time that was very difficult to forget even if they want to.
Aside from the settled loan balance in TSPI, the family of Nanay Anabelle received more than P400,000 from TSPI MBAI. Her spouse, Tatay Wilfredo finished the dream house of Nanay Anabelle when she was still with them. The remaining benefits gave them hope since they can continue with their life, especially the education of her grandchildren. All of these somehow ease the pain that Tatay Wilfredo and the rest of the family was feeling at that moment.
“Sa kabila ng aming paghihinagpis, hindi pinabayaan ng Panginoon ang aming pamilya. Nakatanggap kami ng mga benepisyo na TSPI na naging simula ng aming pamumuhay at pag asa”. (Out of our misery, the Lord did not forget us. We received benefits from TSPI that allowed us to start over again and it gave us hope) – from the Olarte Family.
Losing someone is indeed a painful experience. But with TSPI, there is hope and an assurance that the needed assistance will surely come at a time when it is most needed. Thanks to our God!
