Obituary for Kimberly A. Rodriguez

September 20, 1960 - January 1, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 58

... had the most caring and loving spirit...


Kimberly Anne Rodriguez (née Unger), age 58, passed away on Tuesday, January 1, 2019, surrounded by family. She was born on Sept. 20, 1960 at Fairchild Air Force Base near Spokane, Washington. As a military "brat" Kim lived all over the USA, and in England, and Germany.

She was a 1978 graduate of Highlands High School and a 1982 graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. She married her high school sweetheart, Edward Rodriguez and they spent many good years together. They remained close friends even after their divorce.

She taught math, science and history for 30 years at Harris Middle School. She loved her career at Harris, especially all of her students. She always went out of her way to help any student in need, even spending her own money to assure they had the best education she could give them. She only retired so that she could help take care of her elderly parents.

She had a lovely singing voice, played the piano, and loved to draw. Kim loved people and had the most caring and loving spirit. Her spiritual life was rich and deep as it was based on acceptance and love for all people. She had many pets in her lifetime and loved them all, including two horses, Toni and Ricki, but her beloved dog Bart was her "baby" for the last 15 years. It would always make her smile when she would say about Bart – "Who rescued who?"

Kim is preceded in death by her father, Maj. General Dr. Howard R. Unger (ret.). She is survived by her beloved mother Patricia Unger, siblings Lori Segura (Steve), Howard R. Unger, Jr. (Beatriz), and Cynthia Gable (Chalmers). Her nieces Sarah Spector (Daniel), Dr. Roxanne Unger, Robyn Unger and her grand-nephews Benjamin And Samuel Spector will miss her dearly.

You are invited to a "Celebration of Life" on Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 2 pm to 4 pm at 859 Cravens Ave., San Antonio, Texas.
