Maria C. "Connie" Snead

April 17, 1949 — February 18, 2022

On Friday February 18th 2022, our Father God called upon the name of his daughter, Maria C.  “Connie “ Snead. I assure you that today you will be with me in Paradise. Luke 23:43

She is preceded in death by her parents Arturo M. Arce Sr. and Guadalupe R. Arce, brother Ricardo Arce, her husband Michael Gilbert Snead, her son Timothy Leary Snead and Great Aunt Maria Ramos.

She is survived by her son Charles Emerson Snead, her only grandson Drake Dillon Snead, brothers Jose G. Arce, Arturo M. Arce Jr. (Juanita) and her loving sister Norma Arce who was with her until her last moments.  As well as, numerous close relatives including nephews, nieces, cousins and her always true and very best friends who together brought so much joy and laughter to her life.

“Connie” as she was known by many was a beautiful and charming person both inside and out.  She had a great heart and was a loving, kind and devoted mother, grandmother, daughter and sister.  She would always do anything she could to please her pride and joy, Grandson Drake as well as anyone who went to her in a time of need.

She took honor in all she did and for many years she was dedicated in her position as clerk with the State of Texas HHSC until her retirement in 2016. We know she will be remembered by all of her friends as a truly fabulous woman.  One of her many attributes was that she was a great listener and you could always count on it that your secret would stay safe with her. She was also a very intelligent reader with many interests and could keep a conversation going about almost anything. We the family, want to thank the numerous people who stood by her in prayer.

Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, February 27, 2022 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Gamez & Sons Funeral and Cremation Services. A prayer service will be given by her Pastor Alfred Addo Mensah.
