Christine Herrera Obituary

Christine Herrera

Christine Peters Herrera, 72, originally from New York, NY, was born on December 15, 1948 and joined her mother, Tessie, in heaven on December 17, 2020. She leaves behind her brother, Van Peters, of Boca Raton, FL and his family; daughter Odessa Schmid of San Angelo, TX (husband Drew) and grandchildren Nathan and Chloe; daughter Angela Anderson of Boston, MA (husband Paul) and a baby granddaughter on the way; son Anthony Herrera of San Antonio, TX (wife Wendy) and grandson Gabriel; son Michael Herrera of New Braunfels, TX (wife Courtney) and grandchildren Jaxon and Cora; daughter Eileen Gamboa of Richmond, TX (fiancé Isaac) and grandchildren Jacob, Jaden and Juliana; and countless family and friends. Tina grew up in Queens, New York, where she proudly attended Greek School as a child (with the occasional escape, only to be taken back by her parents). She later moved to Connecticut to live with her grandparents, where she graduated from Norwich Free Academy in 1966. Tina raised her five children and cherished her grandchildren in San Antonio, Texas, where she worked for St. Pius X School for 25 years. Tina was a friend to everyone, a strength and force like no other, and the best Mom and Yia Yia. Her greatest wish was that her family remember her by staying together, dancing, laughing, cooking Greek food, waving to the real Santa in NYC every year on Thanksgiving Day, and always Believing. Her infectious laugh will continue to be heard from everywhere. All celebrations of Tina’s life will be livestreamed for loved ones afar and for those who wish to honor her life while remaining safe during these unprecedented times.
