Obituary For Carlita Ochate Engcong

Nanay Carlita Ochate Engcong passed peacefully in the loving presence of her family in Grande Prairie, Alberta. She lived to the age of 83 and was married to her husband Tatay Maximo L. Engcong for 59 years. Nanay Carlita enjoyed spending time with her children, grand-children, and great-grandchildren, while also (playfully) bickering with Tatay Maximo. She was the matriarchy and beauty queen of our family. She loved shopping, going out and getting her hair, nails and makeup done. Nanay also loved spending time outside in the sun, whether it be watching her grandchildren or gardening in the yard. She was a people person, and everyone that knew her loved and adored her dearly.

Carlita is survived by her loving husband Maximo L. Engcong; her children Manuel and Pilar, Arlene and Oscar, Gemma and Glenn, Marites and Armando, Annie and Oliver; grand children Mirla & Jingkie, Stephen Brian & Emmalyn, April & Michael, Nikka, Manuel James, Mary Faith & Blaine, Paul John, Mariefaith-Ann & Ben, Jessica-Anne, Joseph Francis, Glenn Michael, Mia-Franz, Marc-Aidan, Meagan-Joy, Aaleyah-Mae, Cyrone Dream, Cedric-Lee, Cadence-Oliver, Carter-Zen, Jet-Lincoln; great grand children Ayah-Grace, Stephen-Jimir, Princess, Ethan, Luke Michael, Claude.
