August 6, 1968 - January 5, 2022
A loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, Gina Marissa Mata went to be with the Lord on January 5, 2022, at the age of 53, in San Antonio, Texas. She was born on August 6, 1968 in Los Angeles, California. She is preceded in death by her brothers, Roland Galindo and Baby James; maternal grandmother, Yolanda Villanueva and mother-in-law, Ruth L. Mata. Gina is survived by her loving husband of 36 years, Frank Mata; father, Mario Galindo (Stella); mother, Janet Vaquera; step-dad, Mike Vaquera; father-in-law, Francisco Mata; daughter, Jenelle Reyes (Daniel); grandson, Ethyn Reyes; sisters, Lori Duran (Christopher), Krystal Marton (Andras), Angelica Bloor (Tom), Elaine Soto (Gabe) and Cynthia Garcia (Mario); brother and sister-in-law, Michelle Aguirre (Hector) and Mike Mata (Priscilla), and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Gina will be remembered for her unwavering faith, her infectious laugh and playful sense of humor, those gorgeous green eyes, and her kind, motherly spirit. Gina took pride in being a devoted wife and was blessed to have married the love of her life. The first born, she was also a cherished and loving daughter. Always wiser than her years, Gina lovingly filled the role of mother and big sister to many. Even friends were family and all knew where to turn for sound advice, a hearty laugh, a shoulder to cry on, or a safe place to land. Gina loved to laugh, to dance and to be outdoors…but what she loved most was God, her husband, her daughter, her family, her church, and her pets. Gina will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her but we know that this farewell isn’t forever. We will be reunited again in Heaven. Visitation will be Saturday, January 15, 2022, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. with a Prayer Service to begin at 6:30 p.m. at Mission Park Funeral Chapels South. Services will conclude in the chapel.
