Cynthia G. Marquez passed away Saturday, April 11, 2020 after experiencing an unexpected medical condition.

She was born in Alice, Texas March 1, 1950 to Heberto and Noemi (Solis) Gonzalez. She was raised in San Diego, Texas and graduated from San Diego High School in 1968. In 1971, Cynthia married Ruben Marquez and remained so for 49 years. Also in that same year she received a B.A. in Education from Southwest Texas State University all the while staying involved in the school’s twirling group, the Bob-Kittens.

She began her teaching career soon after in 1972 at CCISD’s Roy Miller High School. It is there that she found great joy in being an educator, instructor and mentor - so much that she eventually retired from Miller after 32 years.

Growing up Cynthia had a love for dance and competitive twirling. It is those early years that brought her to enjoy and care so much for the position she held at Roy Miller High School as the High Stepper Drill Team Director. Throughout the 30 years as Director she was able to begin and build a lifelong relationship with many of the girls in the program. A bond so strong that many would call her a second mom or “mama bear”. With and for her girls she always felt a great sense of pride and achievement. One that always held a special place in her heart and made her smile.

Along with dance, she also loved spending time in nature and travelling. From a relaxing time outside at the ranch, to climbing the mountains of Montana, pulling the casino slots at L'Auberge, or walking the streets of Paris or Spain, she would always anticipate and welcome the next experience the world had to offer.

Throughout her life Cynthia was known for many things but mostly for being happy, gentle, kind, affectionate, thoughtful, understanding, and strong willed. Not to mention for leaving a great impact on the lives of many. She also loved everyone including her husband, boys, family and friends unconditionally. It is for these things she will always be loved and dearly missed by all.

Cynthia was preceded in death by her father, Heberto, and her mother, Noemi. She is survived by her husband, Ruben Marquez, her two sons, Brandon (Valerie) Marquez and Jason (Nikki) Marquez and her grandsons, Kieran and Sebastian; two sisters, Corinne (Isauro) and Betty (Romeo).

Due to the restrictions regarding the Coronavirus, visitation and interment are private.

Mrs Cymthia Marquez was an awesome teacher where I first met her at Driscoll Middle School, where she was the tennis coach. She was understanding, caring, listener, and continually challenged you to be the best. When I went to Miller High School she did not change down to earth, consistent with her students and always caring but firm. I will miss her smile, laugh and great conversations. My condolences to her family and may Jeaus Christ comfort all her family is this difficult time.

My deepest sympathy to all the Marquez family. I was fortunate to have been a member of the SDHS of 1968, along with Cynthia. We shared great times in high school, especially being in the band, and of course being with her and fellow classmates at our 50th reunion. May Cynthia Rest In Peace in the arms of the Lord!

Heartfelt condolences to the entire family, you were all so blessed to have her as the rock of your family! So many feelings as I viewed these photos, and I feel so fortunate to have had her light in my life. I'll never forget the day she presented me with a rose for having made the drill team, that memory is forever etched in my mind ~ I was in a middle school class with a heavy heart, and then she knocked on the door and lit up my life. She will forever have a special place in my heart...eternally grateful for her LOVE <3
