Title

Lilia Villanueva Betita

Description

As Aida Betita explains, Lilia's husband, Benito "Benny" Betita was one of the first of the Reyes-Betita cousins to return to the Philippines after the Second World War to find a wife. Benny's first wife was Caucasian. They were divorced and had no children together. Lilia was his second wife and came to the United States in 1947. Felipe Betita went back to the Philippines after Benny, then the rest of the cousins followed, being told "it's easy there" to find a wife.
