Hospicia Magsaysay Limjoco

My father's family

These are the ladies and gentlemen of my father, Ramon A Limjoco's family, late 1800s to mid early 1900s. Too lovely not to share. It also is showing a visual social history of the men and women of the Philippines in those days. They all lived and died in the Philippines. This is their visual history.

The lady in the sepia tone photo is my father, Ramon's paternal grandmother. Hospicia Magsaysay Triviño Limjoco. Taken in the Philippines in the late 1890's to approximately early 1900s.

These are my family and I want them to be remembered. Each of them formed who I am in one way or another, through their influence on my dad and his sisters, my aunts.|

This is my tribute to all of them.

Anastacia Ochoa Arguelles

My great grandmother

One of her daughters, Felicidad Arguelles Limjoco, was my dads' mother. She had 12 children, with 11 surviving. This is the only photo of Anastacia (known to her grandchildren as lola Itchay) I have ever seen. She had passed away by the time I was born. People would stand outside her door when she would make "paseo" (take a stroll) in the early evenings just to see what she was wearing. The top has the traditional Maria Clara sleeves of the day, but the European bustle would have made her stand out in any crowd in back then in the Philippines. She was quite the fashionista in her day.

My grandfather - Dr. Gregorio Limjoco I

Lolo Goyo died the year I was born, so I never got to meet him. Everyone spoke very highly of him, and I lived with his medical books and a huge painting of him was always on display in our living room. He was very kind and generous.

My paternal grandmother

Felicidad Arguelles Limjoco. She was a simple woman. Not as glamorous as her sister Amparo. But then again she had 11 children to raise, and unlike her sister who lived in Manila society, she lived in the provinces.

Felicidad Arguelles Limjoco

daughter of Anastacia Ochoa Arguelles

Born on November 18, 1891 - My grandmother at a very young age. She married Dr. Gregorio Triviño Limjoco. She was known as "Feling". My grandfather was smitten by her when she was only 13 years old. He approached her family, offered his hand and when she was of age, they married and had 12 children. Father Ramon was one of them.

When I was a child, she would regale me with stories of my grandfather, who was a well-respected physician and philanthropist. She would still get stars in her eyes, though she was well into her 60's when she told me those tales.

Amparo Arguelles de Villa

Taken approx. 1939 - Sister of dads' mom, his aunt...we called her lola Amparing. She was very well dressed and took to fashion like her mother Anastacia. In her mom's day, people would wait outside her door to see what she wore. lola Amparing was like that, without the crowd, but not the admiration of others as well. She loved beautiful things, clothes designed by the designers of the day and diamonds!

Tia Amparing also loved beautiful clothes and expensive perfume. She always smelled so good. She took after her mom Anastacia "Itchay".

Bonifacio Triviño Limjoco

Bonifacio, Born May 13, 1889, was the brother of my grandfather, Dr. Gregorio Limjoco I. He married Virginia Rodriguez Enumerable. We called her lola Virginia. A very kind and gracious woman. They lived in Lian, Batangas. A very good cook and gracious hostess always.Lolo Pacio (as Bonifacio was known) had the first rice mill in Lian. The house they built is still standing in Lian, Batangas, as well as the rice mill, but that is no longer functioning.

Lolo Angel Triviño Limjoco I

My great uncle, lolo Angel I and wife, Felisa Lejano Limjoco. A wonderful family. They took care of my American mother when she first flew to the Philippine with a two week old infant. This branch has a very special place in my heart.

Great Uncle- Conrado Triviño Limjoco

He was the first Filipino tennis champion in Chicago or the US as far as I know in the late 1920s. On his left is his brother, Angel T. Limjoco.
