Margaret C. Quintanilla

Margaret “Maggie” Quintanilla passed in peace on February 10, 2021. She was preceded in death by her husband, Leo. Maggie was a cherished friend, loving daughter, dedicated wife and mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother. She will be greatly missed.

Maggie was born in Floresville, Texas to John and Eleanor Cordaway on February 13, 1923, the fourth of eleven brothers and sisters.

She relocated to San Antonio in 1941 and married Leo Quintanilla on July 1, 1944. The couple welcomed two children: a son, William, and a daughter, Margaret Ann.

Maggie enjoyed life’s simple pleasures: time with her family, music, dancing, sewing, and working in the yard. She was an expert bingo and domino player, and was known to tell a joke or two. She was a deeply spiritual woman, finding love and strength in her relationship with the Lord.

She is survived by her son, William and his wife Gloria; her daughter, Margaret Ann; five grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.

A viewing will be held on Monday, March 22nd at Roy Akers Funeral Home, from 5-8pm with a rosary at 7pm. For those unable to attend, the viewing and rosary will be streamed virtually.

A funeral mass will be held on Tuesday, March 23rd at St. James the Apostle Catholic Church at 11am. Burial will follow at Fort Sam Houston at 1:30pm.

She always had a beautiful smile, a great laugh and an extra plate on the table.
She loved my kids and always gave me a hand when I needed it.
Many blessings to the family.
And the kindness you all have given me and the kids

To my "Mom" Maggie ...
I'll always remember your pleasant smile, your bright eyes, your hearty laughter, and your sense of humor. You were always so nice and kind to me, You always made me feel so at home in your home that I felt like you were my second Mom. I'll never forget you.
