To Celebrate a Life of Love: Myrna L. Grabinger

December 7, 1936-November 21, 2021

Myrna L. Grabinger, age 84, passed away on Sunday, November 21, 2021 in San Antonio, Texas. She was born December 7, 1936 in Alice, Texas to Lilia Vedia and Martin Lopez.

Myrna grew up in Alice where she graduated high school and went on to study Elementary Education in San Antonio at the University of the Incarnate Word. There she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 1970. Myrna highly valued education and earned a Master of Education degree from Our Lady of the Lake University in 1977 while raising three young children. She spent most of her career teaching and educating young minds at Stafford Elementary from which she retired in 1991.

She was a bright, energetic, and adventurous soul and enjoyed socializing, dancing, and traveling. As a member of the Red Hats Society, she participated in many Church events. Myrna’s love for travel took her many places. One of her favorites was Estes Park which she discovered while living in Colorado. The mountains, river, and wildlife brought her peace and joy.

Myrna was the heart of her family as was evident in the ways she brought them together, whether near or far, by encouraging and planning gatherings. Of utmost importance to her were her faith and her family. Her grandkids were her sunshine and she lit up with pride in their presence.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lilia and Martin; her brothers, Martin, Cesar, and Homero; and sisters, Sylvia and Jilma. Myrna is survived by her husband of 50 years, Ronald Grabinger; children, Sylvia Yvette Silva-Cantu, Keith Grabinger and wife Betsy, and Trisha Grabinger; grandchildren, Lauren Silva, Jeremy Cantu, Amy Cantu, Hudson Grabinger, Grayson Grabinger, Madeline Twyman, and Margaret Twyman; brothers, Mario Lopez of Palm Coast, Florida and Arturo Lopez of El Paso, Texas; as well as numerous extended family members and a lifetime of friends.

The family will receive friends for visitation from 5:00 to 7:00 PM on Sunday, December 12, 2021, at Porter Loring Mortuary North.
