Anadilia Ortega De Ponce


Our Loving “Mamá”, Anadilia Ortega de Ponce has gone to be with our Lord Father on July 6th, 2023. Mamá's legacy lives on, leaving behind through her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and the terrain she built with her own two hands. Mamá was a strong, hard-working woman that worked for everything she had since she was just a child. She will be remembered for her hard work, personality and spirit. Everyone that knew Mamá will remember her hilarious sense of humor, dancing, and smiling to merengue and bachata. She is famous for her numerous recipes, and the quality and taste of her food. Most importantly, she will be remembered as a center of love. She was happiest when the family was together and was the core of unity and determination through love, putting meaning and significance behind the family name. 

Anadilia Ortega de Ponce was born in Boca de Mao, Dominican Republic on August 6th, 1935. Eventually, she moved to Boca Chica with her husband, Domingo Ponce (Papa)seeking a better life for her family. She went from collecting rocks piles to be sold for construction to creating a way of life for herself, and all eleven of her children. They made a living through cultivating the Conuco (farmland) and selling animals as well as becoming the local butchers. After many hardships and a long fight for their land they secured a future for their family and became the first family to establish a community they later named Alto de Chavon in Boca Chica. Mamá and Papa were loved and well respected by all the residents in the communality they established. Mamá will return to her homeland to be reunited in heaven with Papa and her beloved children she once lost. Mamá’s tribute along with Papa will forever be remembered passing the streets named after them in Altos De Chavon.



Nuestra adorada Mamá, Anadilia Ortega de Ponce se ha ido a estar con nuestro Señor Padre el Dia 6 de Julio de 2023. El legado de Mamá vive en dejar atrás a través de sus hijos, nietos, bisnietos y el terreno que construyó con sus propias manos. Mamá era una mujer fuerte y trabajadora que trabajo duro por todo lo que tenía desde temprana edad. Ella será recordada por sus esfuerzos, personalidad y espíritu. Todos los que conocieron a Mamá recordarán su gracioso sentido del humor, simpre bailando y sonriendo al ritmo del merengue y la bachata. Ella es famosa por sus numerosas recetas, la calidad y sabor de su comida. Más importante, es que será recordada como un centro de amor. Ella era más feliz cuando la familia estaba junta y era el núcleo de la unidad y la determinación a través del amor, poniendole el significado y sentido detrás del nombre de la familia. 

Anadilia Ortega de Ponce nació en Boca de Mao, República Dominicana el Dia 6 de Agosto del 1935. Eventualmente, se mudó a Boca Chica con su esposo, Domingo Ponce (Papa) en busca de una vida mejor para su familia. Ella trabajaba durorecolectando rocas para venderlas a la construcción locales y consegir el dinero diario para la alimentacion de sus hijos. Con tiempo, llegaron a convertirse en negosiantes de animales y carniceros locales y gananddoce la vida cultivando su Conuco. Después de muchas dificultades y una larga lucha por su tierra, aseguraron un futuro para su familia y se convirtieron en la primera familia en establecer una comunidad que más tarde llamaron Alto de Chavón en Boca Chica. Mamá y Papá eran amados y muy respetados por todos los residentes en la comunidad que establecieron. Mamá regresará a su tierra natal para reunirse en el cielo con papá y sus amados hijos que una vez perdió. El tributo de Mamá junto con Papá siempre será recordado recorriendo las calles que llevan su nombre en Altos de Chavón.
