She allowed the use of her house as a secret meeting place of the revolutionary leaders of Iloilo. Her family's hacienda at Angaro was also used as a food and supply depot of the rebels. Her father supervised the depot.

She helped build a hospital for the rebels by providing bamboo bed, chairs, tables, shelves, cabinets, and clothing materials. She cared for the wounded and sick Filipino soldiers even after she lost two of her children during a smallpox epidemic. The Red Cross helped her by soliciting food and clothes.

She sewed the Philippine flag that was raised in the Dueñas town square on June 12, 1899, the first anniversary of the proclamation of independence.

She was also known as Florence Nightingale of Panay.

Kailangan sa pagtatag ng isang bansang malaya ang kooperasyon ng mamamayan at mabisang pinuno. (The cooperation of the citizens and effective leadership are needed in setting up a free country.)
