Cynthia Marie Salinas Snyder, age 73 years, peacefully met her heavenly Father following an eight year battle with multiple myeloma on November 29th, 2021 in San Antonio, Texas. She resided in Laredo, Texas for the past 23 years and was an active community member. She was a proud member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, organized local blood drives, was a member of the St. Augustine School Board, and participated in numerous community groups. She was a devoted member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church, selflessly giving countless hours to the growth of her faith community. She particularly enjoyed St. Ignatian theology and actively supported those around her to reflect/journal on his spiritual practices.
Cynthia grew up in Hebbronville, Texas and fondly remembered her childhood in a small town, where everyone seems related. She enjoyed sharing stories of "mom and dad," her family and lifelong friends, the station, and the simple joys that shaped her to be the loving and caring person so many have known her to be. She attended Southwest Texas State University, where she majored in Home Economics. She went on to work for American Electric Power, a position she held for several decades. She enjoyed theater, religious pilgrimages, wine, charcuterie, "table scaping," Notre Dame, and entertaining friends with her delightful cooking and baking.
Cynthia is preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Hortencia Salinas, siblings, Frank Salinas, Nelda Palacios (Pere Palacios), brother-in-law Ruben Resendez and husband, David Alan Snyder. She is survived by her two children, Jon-David Snyder, expecting daughter, Angelique Snyder and husband, Kenneth Nugent and siblings Veronica Salinas (Jesus Salinas) and Margot Resendez and sister-in-law, Lupita Salinas and numerous nieces and nephews.
