Maura Fernandez, age 63 of San Antonio, a cherished daughter, sister, aunt, godmother, cousin, and friend to many, passed away surrounded by her family on January 4, 2023, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Maura was born on July 5, 1959, in Kingsville, Texas. She graduated from H.M. King High School and attended Texas A & I University.
