Carolyn Jo Limjoco met her husband, Uriel R. Limjoco, while she was in college at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Her young married life was principally involved in raising their six children and leading them to become God-loving, educated, and industrious members of the community. Dedicated to helping and educating children in need, Carolyn spent many years as a member of a school board in Wisconsin, ten of them as president. Throughout the years, she donated her salary for scholarship money to deserving students, and she and her husband spent many years as a safe house for battered children.
Uriel and Carolyn write, “Inspired by the character and teachings of Dr. Jose Rizal, the youthful and lovely Marissa struggled to lift the living conditions in rural Philippines with the help of a dedicated American military physician at a time when hate and political debauchery governed the country. Is it worth the ultimate sacrifice? Perhaps so. Only time will tell.”
