April 30, 1934 ~ October 26, 2022

Born in: San Antonio, Texas
Resided in: San Antonio, Texas

The youngest of four siblings, Cynthia Lorraine Stubbs was born to the late Joseph Bernice Stubbs and Cynthia Rita Hodge Stubbs on April 30, 1934, in San Antonio Texas. Cynthia was a bright, beautiful free-spirited child, who brought joy to all who knew and loved her.

Cynthia attended Phillis Wheatly Highschool; she exceled in her classes and loved being a majorette. During high school she met her first husband Louis Fields Sr. (affectionately known as Husti). In the summer of 1953 Cynthia and Louis united in marriage. In their unity Cynthia and Louis attended Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, where they both accepted Christ and were baptized by the late Dr. Rev John Joseph Rector Sr.

The marriage was fruitful and produced six children: Angelia Fields (deceased), Trudy Fields-Rector (deceased), Lisa Fields, Louis Fields Jr., Julie Fields-Zellous, and Wendy Fields. As dutiful parents Cynthia and Louis, guided their children to Christ, and had them attend and be baptized at Antioch. Tragically Louis passed in 1966, and through faith and the strength of Jesus Christ Cynthia persevered as a young widow with six children, to provide for herself and children.

Cynthia’s time for love did not end with Husti, God had other plans. Cynthia was blessed to find love again and marry the late Loston Clyde Amos Jr in 1968. Blessings of their union included two children Andrea D Amos and Deonna Amos-Whitfield, who completed this large, beautiful family.

By the grace of God, Cynthia found a position at Robert B Green Hospital in San Antonio. She was hired as a unit clerk in the newborn nursery. She also worked in the nutrition department at Southwest Texas Methodist Hospital. In 1967 Cynthia started her long successful career with the United States Postal Service (USPS). Cynthia worked in mail processing as a LSM operator, a distribution clerk at Serna Station and a PSDS technician at the Control Center. Cynthia completed several Management Development courses, that she was able combine with her natural ability to lead, which spearheaded her first promotion as a supervisor in the Computerized Mail Forwarding Unit (CMFU). She continued to excel and receive promotions in upper management; in fact, Cynthia was the first African American Female Station Manager, in San Antonio, Texas. Throughout her career she helped develop and assist numerous employees to find the same success she had. She retired from the USPS in 1997 as a level twenty-two Postmaster, after thirty years of service.

Can you believe Cynthia wasn’t done yet, she decided to get back to work and took on employment at Sam’s Club for 15 years. While at Sam’s Club, Cynthia started as a greeter, greeting each person with her warm welcoming smile. Just like while working for the USPS, Cynthia was not satisfied, and she wanted to do more and switched to the Demo/Sample Department. Defying age barriers, Cynthia wanted to learn more on the electronic side and applied for the photo lab. This is where she spent the last ten of her fifteen years enjoying developing pictures and making great connections with her customers at Sam’s.

Cynthia’s greatest joy was her family. She proudly testified her greatest blessings was strong intelligent children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She made it her mission to have all her grandkids and great grandkids know Jesus Christ. She would have all the grandkids sit around the table and resight

Palms 23, before each meal. It filled her heart with joy, knowing that all her grandkids, and great grandkids are faithful servants. Additionally, Cynthia was dedicated to the education of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She made sure her offspring knew the importance of education and strive to complete their credentials. Until the end she was their biggest cheerleader, supporter, counselor, friend, and confidant.
