Antonietta Bagolor Escabarte

February 17th, 2024

Antonietta "Naneth" Bagolor- Escabarte, a long-time resident and citizen of Vancouver, B.C., Canada, was carried peacefully into God` s loving arms Saturday, the 17th of February while surrounded by her loving family with the supportive team of Vancouver Hospice Society- Granville. 

Born in 1970 in Tubigon, Bohol, Philippines to her mother, Rosita D. Bagolor and to her late father, Ernesto A. Bagolor, she had her wondrous early years well-nurtured with love and taught her to discover independence, determination, perseverance, and resilience. Married to the love of her life for 12 years, her late husband, Crispin R. Escabarte Jr., fulfilled their wishes and dreams of a perfect family and had given her 4 beautiful and talented children, until she tragically became Widowed at an early age. 

Naneth willfully and selflessly continued to even strive harder, risked her own happiness and desires and never remarried for the sake of her own children. She then flew to Taiwan in 2002 and decided to immigrate to Canada in 2005.

Naneth received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Education from University of Bohol in 1993. Although she chose not to pursue with her nursing career, she attained her RCA Certification from Gateway College in 2011, and continued with her unwavering dedication and compassion to serving humanity— providing tender care with love and respect as a Registered Care Aide for greater than 20 years — Jen Ai`s Home- Taiwan (3 years), Revera Crofton Manor- West Vancouver (12 years), and Vancouver private homes (since 2005) which gave her residents utmost dignity. Beyond her role as a caregiver, she radiated warmth and love to all she encountered. 

Naneth had her passion in music, styling, and travelling. She is fond of exploring other places and countries with the pleasure of reconnecting with family and friends from all over the world. Loved by many, Naneth is well known for her vibrant and congenial personality with a pure soul and a genuine heart. 

Her presence illuminated the lives of many, extending far beyond her responsibilities. Whether lending a helping hand, or simply sharing a beautiful contagious smile, she had touched our hearts in countless ways. 

She survived by her children, Ana Jenessa (Glenson Val), Stanley Clark (Fretzie Mae), Anna Angelika (Maxime), Ana Antoinete; grandchildren, Zachary Clark, Zoey Clare, Zion Gabriel, Zorro; siblings, Alain Fernando, Allan Lou, Rowena, Katherine; and mother, Rosita- all who brought great joy and meaning to her life.

Our dearest mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, and wife has reunited with her husband, Crispin Jr., her late sister, Anna Leah, and her father, Ernesto. 

Naneth leaves behind a legacy of love, resilience and cherished memories that will be carried in the hearts of many. 

She will be greatly missed and always remembered in our hearts.

We are sincerely grateful to the many friends who have given us support and comfort especially during this time of loss: Agnes, Grace, Cristina Parilla and Cristina Ramos, Emerita, Elsie, Ruchelle (Evelyn), and Crofton Manor Family; Victoria and Arcilen, Ethel Joy and Surrey Family; Mary Jane Seroje, Nathie and Gateway College Family; Jasmin, Rocessa and Jen- Ai`s Home Family. Mary Ann Caballo, UBCN Batch 1990 and Batch 1993.
