In Memory of
Maria Asunción Rodríguez Mylius
-

Maria Asunción Rodríguez Mylius passed away on July 24, 2022, in Houston, Texas.  She was born on May 14, 1937, in Santa Cruz de la Palma, Canary Islands, Spain, to Rodrigo Rodríguez Rodríguez and Josefina Kabana Vargas, who both precede her in death. 

Soon after she was born, her family moved to Cabaiguan, Cuba. While in Cuba, she went to school in Santa Clara. In 1947, her family moved back to Santa Cruz de la La Palma. Maria continued her studies in the island of Tenerife (Santa Cruz de Tenerife) and graduated from El Colegio de la Asunción. 

Following her graduation in 1955, her family moved back to Cuba. They lived in Caibaiguan for a few months then moved to Havana, Cuba. Maria planned to attend medical school in the University of Havana; however, due to the Cuban Revolution, all academic facilities were closed in Cuba. 

Later in 1959, Maria moved to the United States where she continued her education at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA. She came to Baton Rouge from Cuba through New Orleans with little personal belongings. At the time, she could read English, but she had not yet learned how to speak English. She lived with a host family (Sra. Maria Sanchez) that helped her learn English and become acclimated to her new environment. Maria worked many jobs at the LSU campus, including being a waitress, to help make ends meet. Within a few years, she graduated from LSU with a degree in Microbiology. After graduation, Maria worked in Baton Rouge as a Medical Technologist. During this time, she met her husband of over 50 years, Charles “Chuck” Mylius, who passed away just a few weeks before her. Maria and her husband later moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, for a brief period then settled in Houston, Texas, for the rest of their lives. 

She is survived by her daughter, Carmen Lukner; 5 grandchildren, Elizabeth Thomas, Catherine Michalska, David Lukner, Joseph Lukner, and Stephen Lukner; her brothers, Rodrigo Rodríguez-Kabana & wife Carolina Dorotea Rodríguez-Kabana, and Felix José Rodríguez Kabana; and her sister, Carmen Rodríguez Kabana Cabrera & husband Fransisco Cabrera Yanes.

A funeral Mass will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Walsingham (7809 Shadyvilla Ln, Houston, TX 77055) followed by burial at Woodlawn Cemetery.
