Estrellita Nable Miranda
October 31, 1954 to January 4, 2021

Estrellita Perea Nable-Miranda’s parents, Mr. Pedro Goco Nable, Jr. and Mrs. Rosita Crizaldo Perea-Nable moved to San Jose, Occidental Mindoro, in 1954 and returned to Calero, Oriental Mindoro, to give birth to her. They returned to Caguray, Occidental Mindoro, as Papá was managing the fishpond of Dr. Enrique “Uncle Eking” Goco Nable.

While in Calero, she grew up with three siblings (Ate Erlinda, Dete Edna, & Cheri). Close relatives and friends called her Sanse or Lita.

She later migrated with her parents and Cheri in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro, where she spent her childhood up to High School. She helped her Mamá with the care of additional three siblings (Wilhelmina Milabel, George Edward, and Ruby Rose) up to High School.

She was baptized as a Nable Jose, a Mediterranean surname of our paternal’s clan, and Protestant at United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) where she strengthened her faith. Her mother introduced Christianity to all the children. Her mentor was Mr. Johnny Alvaro. She was active in the Christian Youth Fellowship (CYF). She also had an opportunity to work for UCCP in Quezon City.

She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at Philippine Christian University, Manila, in 1977. In 1978, at age 23, she married her husband, Engr. Jerry Nable Miranda and their first child, Raquel Nable Miranda-Ignacio, was born in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro. A year after, their second child was born, a son, TJ Miranda. Few years later, in 1983, another son was born, Ace Miranda. After eight years of living happily in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro, Lita and her family moved to Pinamalayan, Oriental Mindoro. Two years thereafter, the family eventually settled in Calapan, Oriental Mindoro where Lita and her husband Jerry co-founded the Santo Niño Chaplaincy that resulted in the building of its chapel. With her unconditional devotion to her faith, Lita and her husband Jerry became lifetime members of Couples For Christ and the Charismatic Community. Lita, with her husband Jerry, daughter Raquel, and third child, Ace made Dasmarinas, Cavite their beloved home from 2002 through 2013. In January 2013, Lita moved to California to reunite with her husband and her second child, TJ and daughter-in-law, Gerlyn. In 2018, her daughter, Raquel, reunited with her in San Diego, California. Lita continued to be a dedicated member of her community churches regardless of religious denomination. She was an active member of Missionary Families of Christ, formerly Couples For Christ, a catholic organization worldwide. Additionally, she regularly attended Jesus is Lord church with her daughter and son-in-law, Edwin Ignacio. Her seven years at home away from home were made extra special when her grandson, Jax, was born, with whom she visited in the Philippines twice. Thereafter, “Lolay” Lita and Jax, his dad, Ace, and mom Allen, would virtually communicate on a daily basis, which undoubtedly gave unsurpassed happiness to “Lolay” (grandma) Lita.

Lita lived a life of great faith in God and in His likeness. She was an angel on Earth who spread unconditional love to all who walk this earthly place. She embodied humility, positivity, and wore an everlasting smile on her face. She was and still is loved by many and she will be truly missed.

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven; A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

Ecclesiastes 3:1-4

For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.

Romans 14:7-9

Thank you for being here personally and online to celebrate the beautiful life of my wife, Estrellita Nable Miranda. I am honored and privileged to have spent 43 years of my life with Lita.

Lita is a God-fearing and people-loving person. She never hesitates to open her heart to the calls of the Lord and become a vessel of words from the bible. Her energy travels through her social media posts so she can touch the hearts of the people she can’t be with physically. When we had Raquel in ’78 we were overjoyed. She was our first child and only daughter. Lita and Chiqui formed a special friendship that grew as time passes. Our second child, TJ is her pride and joy. TJ has been our rock and support. Through him, we were able to get to where we are now and we were able to avail the medical necessities for Lita. For that we are grateful. Few families are granted a third child but we were blessed when we had Ace in ’83. Ace is a kind and loving child. He was our understanding tour guide whenever we are in the Philippines. Through him, we were able to have our first grand child, Jax, that Lita doted so much. She spent every waking hour with Jax through video calls and would always share loving social media posts dedicated to the child. Her love for her family and friends is immeasurable. Lita was an active member of the church community when she was in the Philippines as Couple’s for Christ and here in San Diego as Missionary Families of Christ member and Jesus is Lord.

I know that we, including the community members, love her and will miss her. Lita, my wife and support system, may you be at peace, and God bless you
