Mindy Kay Bryant Lanoux 1974-2011
Mindy Kay Bryant Lanoux, 37, passed away on Thursday, Sept. 1, 2011, in San Antonio, Texas. She was born July 2, 1974, in San Diego, Calif., to Steven and Mary Bryant.
She was a graduate of East Central High School, and then received her Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Texas A&M University in College Station, with a concentration in education. A born teacher, she worked in Floresville, where she met her husband, and then at North East Independent School District’s MacArthur High School. She was part of the founding faculty for the STEM Academy at Lee High School, where she taught until her illness kept her home. But even after her illness kept her from teaching, she continued to tutor students.
Mindy was a member of Alpha Phi Omega at A&M and a member of Laurel Heights Methodist Church. A consummate volunteer, she coached her children’s soccer teams, was a cheerleader sponsor, UIL Current Events sponsor, student council sponsor, and a team mom. If you asked her, she did it. Mindy was a beautiful person, loving daughter, and an amazing wife and Mom.
She was preceded in death by her sister, Sandra Denise Bryant; her maternal grandparents, Merlin and Alice Nester; and her paternal grandfather, William Bryant.
Mindy is survived by her husband of 11 years, Lance Lanoux; her son, Riley John; her daughters, Marie Colette and Amelie Adele; her parents, Mary and Steven Bryant; parents-in-law Dorothea and Jim Nisbett; and paternal grandmother Vivian Bryant. She is also survived by her brother, Steven Bryant Jr. and wife Jenny; her children’s godparents and best friends, Nadia Nekooi, Tiffany Mann Collins, Mark Leddy, Roger and Lorrie Garcia, and Kevin and Tiffany Gibson; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
A celebration of Mindy’s life was held Saturday, Sept. 10, at 10 a.m. in the Laurel Heights United Methodist Church in San Antonio.
Mindy’s written instructions were that those attending this celebration wear bright colors, think Easter.
Memorial donations may be made to The Lanoux Children Educational Fund at Nixon State Bank, China Grove Branch, 7411 U.S. 87 E., San Antonio, TX 78263-2401.
