BETELINA GUIUA AGUAS,
beloved wife of the late Edilberto R. Aguas,
mother of eleven children, grandmother of 28, and great-grandmother of 13, passed away in her sleep on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. She was 98 years old.
Along with their families, her sons and daughters celebrate her life : Robert and Melinda Kelling of Arizona; Anna Maria Aguas of Lubbock; Idris and Carmelita Mirza of New Jersey; Cary and Leticia Mitchell of Indiana; Eduardo and Lualhati Aguas of Grand Prairie; Hector and Evelina Barlaan of Lubbock; Jim and Elizabeth Rimando of Irving; Romeo and Elvira
Aguas, Joseph and Maribeth Wilcox, and Enrico and Teresita Aguas , all of Lubbock, and James and Caroline Grotjan of Richland Hills, Texas.
Betty immigrated to the United States in 1989 after retiring from her career as educator with the public schools of Pampanga and Manila, Philippines. Her 27-year service spanned years as an elementary grade teacher up to
her role as adult community supervisor with the city schools. Not one to sit idle upon settling in the United States, she worked as accounts clerk for ten years at Margo's of Dallas before coming to Lubbock to live close to her five children who had settled in this city.
Raising 8 daughters and 3 sons was an awesome task which Betty handled
with love and grace. She lived and taught by her own principles and example. She passed on many of nuggets of wisdom to her children and students. "A family that prays together, stays together","Beautiful hands are those that work","You reap what you sow ","Do unto others as you would want others to do unto you","Drink 8 glasses of water a day", "Dress clean and modestly","Action speaks louder than words", etc....These and others remain deeply ingrained in her children's minds and will remain her lasting legacy.
The recitation of the Holy Rosary and Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, April 21 at 6:00 pm in Abbey Chapel at Resthaven Funeral Home. Private cremation and burial will follow.

"You have been so blessed with a long earthly life and helped raise a beautiful, loving family. Now rest in peace, Tia Betty, in God's company." Bobby Aguas (Arlington, VA)
