President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo marked the sixth death anniversary of her mother, former First Lady Evangelina Macaraeg Macapagal, with a mass at her gravesite at the Libingan ng mga Bayani in Fort Bonifacio in Taguig City on Monday afternoon.

The President was joined by her children Luli and youngest son Dato and their close relatives and friends.

After the mass, the President and the guests witnessed the blessing of her mothers gravesite by the concelebrating priests.

Dona Evangelina Macaraeg Macapagal was born in Binalonan, Pangasinan on November 1, 1915 to Juan Macaraeg, a United States-educated engineer from Binalonan, and Irenea de la Cruz, of San Carlos City, also in Pangasinan.

For her high school studies, Evangelina went to the Philippine Womens College (now the Philippine Womens University) in Manila where she graduated with the class of 1931. She was one of the youngest of the 99 members of her class, graduating at the age of 16.
