Besides working as a nurse at the Doctor's Hospital at Reinaissance, Anabelle co-owned and operated with her husband Urban's Legacy Oriental Store. She had a passion for cooking as she learned the delicious recipes from her father Urbano. Anabelle was the best singer in her family and she would crack up a song at anytime. Some of her favorite pass times were dancing with her husband and hanging out with her superhero sister Nanette who would bring her peace and joy.
