Villanueva: The 2019 Bautista-Castillo clan reunion

FABulous People

PLACIDO and Benedicta had four children, namely, Amado, Fernando, Vicente and Conrado Bautista. It was about six years ago, March 9, 2013, when the first Bautista-Clan reunion was held. This was at the University of Baguio Centennial Hall.

The Amado-Bautista clan was represented by mostly relatives from Manila. Among them were Amading, Nita and Fely.

The Fernando-Bautista clan came with the most number. (+)Lolo Fernando and (+)Lola Rosa had 47 grandchildren and 61 great grandchildren. I lost my count at present.

The Vicente-Bautista Clan was then represented by Angelina (the only living in the second generation).

Lola Chedeng (Conrado-Bautista) who was then 87 years old at that time and the oldest living in the 1st generation was also present.

Another reunion was held in 2016 at the same place with much excitement but with a fewer attendees. This year, there were about 200 attendees during the March 9 reunion mostly from the Vicente and Sulit-Castillo clans. Mama Angelina, now 86, was among them. We missed having Lola Chedeng, 93, and Tiyang Tessie, 86, with us. As always there was an abundance of good food, overflowing drinks, entertainment and most of all great company among ever dearest relatives!

Our fervent prayers for Teresita Chio (2018) and husband Bing, Chito Austria (2019) and Rosario-Castillo Raymundo (2019) and for other relatives who have gone. For updates regarding our family tree, kindly email me at Thank you and hope to see you all again! God bless everyone!
