After many years working abroad, Marieta was finally reunited with her children in Canada.
Through all the trials and tribulations, she was able to find peace and joy when she found out she was going to become a grandmother to two loving grandchildren Enrique Yalung and Angelica Yalung, children of Maribel Yalung and Elmer Yalung.
