Cynthia (Cindy) Poe Graham October 7, 1952 – April 3, 2021

Cynthia (Cindy) Poe Graham, 68, of Rosenberg Texas passed away April 3, 2021 in Houston, Texas after suffering a stroke.

A visitation Friday April 9 from 4:00-7:00 pm at Settegast-Kopf Sugar Creek in Sugar Land, with services planned for 11:30 am at St. John’s United Methodist Church in Richmond, Texas. Burial will follow at Davis-Greenlawn cemetery at 3900 BF Terry Blvd in Rosenberg, Texas.

Cindy was the first born to Buryl and Velma (Ramsey) Poe on October 7, 1952. She grew up in Brady, Texas, and moved to Sugar Land for high School where she attended Dulles High School and graduated in 1970. She entered the work force afterwards. She married Glynn Edward Graham on May 10, 1974.

The Grahams spent most of their 40 years of marriage in Sugar Land, Texas where Cindy was a devoted wife and loving mother to Molly, and step-mother to Amy and Lyle. She worked for Fort Bend Independent School District for 26 years, with her time spent at Settler’s Way Elementary School and as the Secretary to the Superintendent and Board of Trustees. She spent most of her time supporting her family, and shuffling Molly to gymnastics, girl scouts, band, and Texas A&M. After retirement she provided unconditional love to Glynn, spoiled her grandsons, and enjoyed devoting time to Merry Ministries and Smith Elementary Ministries at St. John’s United Methodist Church. She had a passion for helping and serving others, cooking, gardening, wildflowers, and the Lord.

She was preceded in death by her father Buryl Wayne Poe, her brother Christopher Wayne Poe, and her nephew Brady Austin Poe.

Survivors include her husband Glynn Edward Graham, daughter Molly (Graham) Minze and husband Cody of Merkel, Texas, Amy (Graham) Krieg of Stafford and Lyle Graham of Houston. She is also survived by her mother Velma Poe, her sister Jacquetta (Poe) Lemke and husband Rick Lemke, and brother Kyle and wife Kim Poe. She is survived by grandsons Luke Graham Minze (5), Ace MacLane Minze (14), Collin Edward Graham, and Max Graham. She is also loved by numerous nephews – Steven and wife Jenn Poe, Travis Poe, Clay and wife Theresa Smith and family, Owen Smith and family, Darrell and wife Andrea Poe and family, and Mason Poe.

Cindy will be profoundly missed by her family and many friends. Her example of service, love, integrity, character, and devotion are a memory for all who knew her.

The family suggests instead of flowers that memorials be made to Ft. Bend ISD Education Foundation Sugar Land, Texas, ministries at St. John’s United Methodist Church Richmond, Texas, or the American Heart Association.

When you work side by side with someone for twelve years, you form a special bond. Cindy welcomed me into the FBISD school superintendent’s office with open arms. It wasn’t especially where I wanted to be at the time, and she was wonderful helping me adjust. She was so understanding and probably thought what have I gotten myself into with this one! We became such a great team in an office where there needed to be absolute trust. I will always treasure our friendship and the bond we formed during both good and difficult times. I will miss you, Cindy. 💙

I have known Cindy for 20 years. She and I worked in the Superintendent's Office for many years together. We were both very happy in that office. At that time we had a Great Superintendent and we all became very close. After she retired we kept in touch and gathered with Sue Marshall and I to have lunch for our birthdays. We looked forward to those times. We also shared some close friends from Virginia Beach. I will miss her dearly. She was a very sweet, dear friend. I will always remember how she ended our lunches with the words "I love you." She was like a sister to me. God bless you Cindy and may you be resting peacefully in heaven with our Lord. Dominga

I got to know Cindy working in FBISD. I would frequent her office when she needed assistance with technology. She was an absolute delight to be around and always a a big smile on her face, even in the most difficult of times. She was always professional and kind. She was definitely a one of a kind. Blessings to each of you.

Cindy and I worked together at FBISD and she was a treasured friend. Once I retired little did I know she would also be my spiritual mentor. She encouraged me to attend her wonderful Bible Study, Merry Ministries, and said it would enrich my life to understand more of God’s teachings. So I followed her lead and every Wednesday morning we met at church for 4 years, went chapter by chapter through the Bible and then lunched and discussed that day’s lessons. What a difference it made so Cindy I will miss you but particularly on Wednesdays. My love and prayers to Molly, Glynn, Velma and the rest of her family.
