Mary Cabrera

October 1, 1928 ~ October 17, 2018 (age 90)

Mary Louise "Cuqui" Cabrera, born October 1, 1928 in Havana, Cuba to parents Manuel Inglaturre and Juliana Amil. Cuqui traveled Europe with her parents for almost a year in 1949. She attended school at The Sacred Heart Academy in Cullman, Alabama. She married the love of her life, Dr. Domingo Cabrera, on December 10, 1955, after a long courtship that began with a prank phone call.

They had four daughters whom they treasured and adored. Cuqui and Doc defected from communist Cuba in 1970 and eventually settled in Bryan, Texas: their new beloved hometown. Doc practiced medicine in the community, becoming the Bryan Vikings team doctor for many years, while Cuqui volunteered for her daughters' organizations, where she created beautifully decorated cakes.

Eventually Cuqui's new nickname became "Mimi" as she helped to care for and love her nine grandchildren. She also became the proud great-grandmother to three great-grandsons. 

Cuqui and Doc became hardcore Aggies. They would never miss a game and helped students attending med school at Texas A&M University.

Cuqui is preceded in death by her parents and her beloved husband, Dr. Domingo J. Cabrera. She is survived by her daughters, Mary and Brett Whitten, Martha and Michael Allen, Carmen and Jim Sheffield, Teresa and Brad Wyatt; grandchildren Brett "Buster," Cherry, and Gillian Whitten, Dulce Terilli, Jonathan Callaway, Travis, Camille, and Michael "Zeke" Sheffield, and Dominic Wyatt; great-grandsons Grayson Thomas, Tripp Terilli, and Cooper Sheffield; sisters Mercedes Inglaturre Alsonso and Herminia Inglaturre Ferro, and many nieces, nephews and cherished lifelong friends.

A visitation will be held from 5-8 PM on Monday, October 22, 2018, at Hillier Funeral Home of BRYAN with a Rosary to begin at 7 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 AM on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at St. Anthony Catholic Church. Interment will take place at College Station City Cemetery.
