Sandra Lopez-Cantu, born Feb. 9, 1966, went to be with the Lord at the age of 48 on Sunday, July 6, 2014, at 3:20 a.m. surrounded by her family and friends as she left to be with God.

Sandra was preceded in death by her baby sister, Valerie Lopez; father Joe Lopez; grandfather Domingo Cardenas; grandmother Lupe Cardenas; grandparents Manuel and Lupe Lopez; and mother-in-law Juanita Cantu.

She is survived by her husband of 14 years, Mike Cantu; her 11-year-old son, Tristan Cantu; mother Sylvia Cardenas; brother Joe Lopez; several nieces and nephews; and lifelong friends.

Sandra’s childhood began on the south side of San Antonio where she attended Graebner Elementary and Stevenson Middle School. She often spoke of the great times playing with her neighborhood friends and family. Sandra and her parents moved to the northwest side of San Antonio where she attended John Marshall High School. Sandra graduated from high school in 1984 and attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. While Sandra was in college she worked at Racquetball and Fitness Clubs of San Antonio beginning in 1989, where she remained a loyal employee for 22 years. Sandra’s career at Racquetball and Fitness and Spectrum Clubs was a prosperous one where she met several friends that she would continue to follow throughout her life.

Sandra met Mike at Racquetball and Fitness where they became friends. After four years they began to date and eventually married on May 5, 2000, at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev. In August of 2006 Sandra and Mike experienced the greatest event of their lives when she delivered her son, Tristan Cantu. Sandra and Mike decided to move out of the city to raise Tristan and chose Floresville. Sandra truly enjoyed the time she spent with Tristan and Mike as they planned Tristan’s future.

Sandra’s personality was like no other; her smile would light up any room she entered and she considered everyone she met as a friend. The family wishes to thank everyone for the wonderful love and support given to Sandra and her family during her illness. Sandra will be missed by many but will forever be in our hearts as her legacy of treating people with kindness and bringing people together lives on, said her family.

A celebration of Sandra’s life as she entered into the Kingdom of God was held on Wednesday, July 9, at 6:45 p.m. with a rosary recited at 7:30 p.m. in the St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in San Antonio, Texas.

A funeral Mass was held on Thursday at 11 a.m. in the church.

Interment followed in the Mission Burial Park South in San Antonio.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Tristan Cruz Cantu Educational Scholarship Fund by contacting Frost Bank at 210-220-5111 or by visiting any Frost Bank location.
