On the demise of Senator Tessie Aquino-Oreta

Our sincerest condolences to the family, relatives, friends, and colleagues of former Senator Maria Teresa “Tessie” Aquino-Oreta who passed away yesterday, May 14, at the age of 75.

Senator Oreta had a distinguished career in public service. She served the country as a Senator during the 11th and 12th Congress and as Representative during the 8th, 9th and 10th Congress.

May perpetual light shine upon the late Senator, and that her soul, through the mercy of God, rest in eternal peace.
