Obituary for Libertad F. Fella

Libertad F. "Betty" Fella, nee Fajardo age 82, of Naperville, formerly of Lombard. Beloved wife of the late Santiago; loving mother of Lana Carmen (Rommel Orlanes) Fella, Scott Francis (Joy) Fella, and Mary Ann (Arsenio Bergante) Fella; devoted grandmother of Roan Santiago and Ryley Gerard Orlanes, Noelle Jolie and Nathan Santiago Fella, and Kale Alexander Bergante; dear sister of Raul Estaras Totañes, Eleanora Estaras Fajardo, Jose Estaras Fajardo, and Maria Sophia Estaras Fajardo; special aunt of the Totañes and Fajardo Families, and the Ancheta, Aqui, Landagora, Rosalin, and Tacadena Families.

Betty died peacefully on December 9, 2018 at her home in Naperville, IL. Her passing was sudden and unexpected. She was born July 4, 1936, in Gubat, Sorsogon, Philippines. At a very young age, she and her older brother, Raul, were adopted by Alfredo Fajardo. She and her five siblings were raised in Gubat and later moved to Manila to attend high school. As a child she enjoyed playing volleyball and badminton. Betty graduated from San Juan de Dios with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and was then sponsored to come to the United States and was employed at Grant Hospital in Lincoln Park. Thereafter, she moved to Montreal, Quebec where she worked as a registered nurse at Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
She married Santiago Tila Fella in 1967 and they had Lana Carmen, Scott Francis, and Mary Ann three children as ‘they’ described as beautiful, athletic and well-dressed. They raised their children in Broadview and later moved to Lombard, Illinois. Betty was a thoughtful and unselfish mother as well as a grandmother to all. She always supported and encouraged her children and later her grandchildren. Betty enjoyed baking and putting up holiday decorations and caring for her lovely grandkids who called her “Ma”. She loved to go on vacations with her family visiting relatives in Canada and traveling with her three kids to Mexico and Hawaii. She was at her happiest cheering her grandkids on at their baseball, basketball, and hockey games. A Cubs fan and dog lover, “Ma” enjoyed the simple things in life; attending mass, grabbing a cup of coffee and visiting her beloved husband at the cemetery. She will be terribly missed but will remain in the heart and minds of her loved ones.
