June 7, 1931-2014

The historic city of Santiago de Cuba was established in the year 1515 and founded by Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar. The motto of Santiago de Cuba is still in Spanish “Rebelde Ayer. Hospitalaria Hoy. Heroica Siempre.” During the 21st century, Santiago de Cuba commemorates its 500th anniversary as the second largest city of Cuba in the southeastern region of the Caribbean island.

Eighty-three years ago, in the year 1931, the historical population of Santiago de Cuba was estimated to be of 101, 508 inhabitants and residents. On June 7, 1931, Roberto Hung Mustelier was born, the fourth youngest son of Santiago Hung Choi and Gertrudis Salustiana Mustelier in a family home of Santiago de Cuba, near the Military Hospital and General Guillermón Moncada Headquarters, known today as the Ciudad Escolar 26 de Julio. Antoñica, “Ñica”, second sister of Gertrudis Salustiana was a registered nurse at the hospital and witnessed the birth of Roberto, her nephew. Her oldest sister, Eduvigis was a certified teacher and helped her with the older children Luz Leing, Miguel Chung, and Filiberto Yuck while she was giving birth and nursing the fourth baby, Roberto. Mario Mustelier was also around to help the family when Gertrudis and Santiago had their fourth baby son, his nephew.

Eight years afterwards, World War II began on September 1st, 1939 in Europe. Roberto Hung was only eight years old and studying in third grade at the Elementary School, when the Second World War started as a global international war in 1939. His youngest sister Caridad Cei-Chieng had already been born in a Cuban-Chinese family of five (5) children born to Santiago and Gertrudis Salustiana in Santiago de Cuba.

In 1945, WWII ended on September 2, 1945, when Roberto Hung was a 14-year-old beginning as a freshman in High School, planning to attend Law School at the Universidad de Oriente in Santiago de Cuba and the Universidad de La Habana in Cuba, three years later. On Roberto Hung’s seventeenth birthday anniversary, his oldest brother Miguel Chung and sister-in-law Silvia Simons had a new baby daughter named Olivia Hung-Simons, who was born on the same date, June 7th. So, Roberto Hung was asked to become his niece’s godfather upon christening of his brother’s and sister-in-law’s new baby daughter. Olivia Hung-Simons was born on June 7, 1948, after the Second World War ended, during the Baby Boom years.

Since Great Grandmother Antonia and Great Grandfather Juan lived across the Military Hospital with their daughters Eduvigis, Antoñica, Gertrudis Salustiana, and youngest son Mario, their children grew up around military veterans of foreign wars who travelled to Cuba and were treated for military rehabilitation and recovery by Cuban medical staff in Santiago de Cuba.

Today is the Memorial Birthday Anniversary celebrating 83 years for people like Roberto Hung who were born on June 7th and lived through the Second World War when the country of Cuba was among the Allied countries around the world who were involved in WWII.

I wanted to share the life and near-death experiences I have had upon returning from Berlin, Germany in December 1996, as Lombard resident homeowner in the Village of Lombard, District 5, York Township, County of Du Page, Illinois USA. To date,  I have become an Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes and Violence Against Women as a Lombard resident homeowner in the U.S.A. The Village of Lombard, DuPage County, and the State of Illinois have not compensated yet me as a Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes and Violence Against Women in DuPage County, Illinois USA.
Since December 1996 upon returning from Berlin, Germany I have had a lot of near-death experiences, accidents, and life problems which I had never had:
Automobile accidents when I returned from Berlin. I had a rollover SUV due to faulty brakes and a broken front right wheel axle after Nathan allowed strangers to use my Green GEO Tracker SUV while I was travelling in London, England, and Berlin, Germany in Europe; white-smoke from the engine block in the car; a stolen Geo Tracker SUV at the College of DuPage Parking Lot in Glen Ellyn, Illinois USA.
A German imported custom-made Mercedez Benz SUV also had a damaged front right wheel axle from Loeber Motors in Westmont, Illinois, reported to Gerd Doepner at the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest in Chicago, Illinois USA;
Family tragedies; Marital problems;
Lombard Real Estate Roofing Water Damages and Losses at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, target of vandalism, trespassing, criminal international terrorism, attempted shooting found on a window pane;
Physical abuse, kidnappings, forced hospitalizations at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital in DuPage County, Illinois; police and fire department harassment by Chief Kuntz, Van Dillerkofer, Graves, Byrne, George Seagraves, Keith Steiskal, Chris Hanigan, Roy Newton, David Thiede, Pam Larsen, Scott Watkins, Dane Cuny, Pat Rollins, and others;
My Father Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor was beaten, abused, and physically disabled by a Traumatic Brain Injury and Aneurysm after I returned from Berlin, Germany on December 22, 1996 and was murdered by Respiratory Therapist Ben Aguilar on June 18, 1998;
My Mother, Mrs. Gardenia Fong Ramos, widow of Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor, who was hospitalized at Illinois Masonic Medical Center under the care of Dr. McKenna, Dr. Patel, and Social Worker Tilary, attempted suicide on January 12, 2006, and survived because I found her injured in her bedroom and provided First Responder Aid, CPR/AED at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road before I contacted Lombard Paramedics, Fire and Police Department. I have not been able to find my Mother for the last six (6) years after I saved her from self-inflicted injury on January 12, 2006. She is still alive as an Alias Unknown Senior Citizen With Lost Identity in the Chicagoland area, in the state of Illinois USA.
My former husband, Nathan Scott Wittler (Patriquin), the first son of Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler Patriquin World Council of Churches Missionaries in Europe and the Middle East, Turkey, has also had several auto accidents since he went to visit the Wittlers’ farm in West Dummerston, Brattleboro, Vermont, in New England, USA.


I started language interpreting for Action Translation with the Illinois Industrial Commission in Chicago at the James R. Thompson Illinois Government Center when Joseph Raudonis used to live in Palos Heights, Illinois—I found a job wanted ad in the newspaper and telephoned Action Translation for assignments translating legal documents for Spanish into English.

Then,   I met Carmen Kenny, a legal interpreter at the Arbitration Center in Chicago, who was looking for a freelance interpreter and translator who could share legal interpreting assignments in the Chicagoland area, travel on-site to judicial hearings, arbitrations, depositions, and translate legal documents upon assignment for Carmen Kenny & Associates based in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

A colleague referred me to Arroyave Academy of Languages managed by Guillermo Arroyave himself in Highland Park and Arlington Heights, who was looking for a communications cross-cultural consultant who could teach foreign languages, interpret, and translate from English into Spanish, French, and/or Portuguese, available for travelling around the Chicagoland area—throughout the counties of Cook, Lake, Will, DuPage, Kane, Grundy, LaSalle, etc.

I had been working for Berlitz Schools of Languages in Chicago, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, and Schaumburg as a language cross-cultural consultant. 

By professional referral and networking, I was contacted by Inlingua Schools in Chicago to work as a professional cross-cultural consultant, language interpreter and translator on-site, in the Chicagoland area.

In addition, I was a member of the American Translators Association and Chicago Area Translators and Interpreters Association.In 1990, I found a newspaper job ad from Diplomatic Languages Service, Inc. , based in Virginia, looking for language interpreters and translators in Chicago, Illinois.

During the 1990’s I interpreted and translated for several Translation Agencies:  Burg Translation, Palencia Language Services,  Interlate Systems, Inc., Linguistic Systems, Inc. in Boston, Massachusetts, Access Translation managed by Rosa Ridderbusch in Lake Zurich, AIM Translations in Bloomingdale, Illinois.
