March 4, 2022

MANILA, Philippines — Former Panorama magazine columnist, author of three books and former president couple with her late husband, Joe Meily Jr., of the Christian Family Movement Anita Tagle Sayoc Meily passed away yesterday at the age of 94 due to COVID-19.

Although vaccinated last July 26 with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at the Makati Coliseum, she was apparently already infected with the virus.

Born March 14, 1927 in Imus, Cavite, Meily survived the World War II battle of Manila when a Japanese friend of her parents warned them to leave the city. Many of her friends and schoolmates at St. Scholastica’s College were killed by the Japanese, “bayoneted and shot,” after they were asked to line up one morning as the American Army approached, she later recounted.
