Ina (Sammi) Cabral Obituary

Ina (Sammi) Cabral, formerly of Baytown, Texas passed away on January 2, 2024.

Ina was a brave, adventurous and generous woman with a gift of gab. She had a unique ability to make instant friends everywhere she went. She made you feel loved and valued. She cherished her time with her grandchildren and enjoyed having them stay with her in the summertime. She loved camping and fishing and exploring national parks with her late husband, JV. Cruising with her family was a favorite way to travel. She loved her chihuahuas. She was an avid reader throughout her life and often shared her favorite books with her friends and family. She enjoyed sewing and working crossword puzzles. Ina was known for her ability to captivate an audience with her stories. She was the first one to break the ice at any gathering or party.

Ina was born on February 1,1954 to James and Doris Pena Culbertson. She grew up in Baytown, Texas and attended Robert E. Lee High School. She was proud to be a licensed cosmetologist.

Preceded in death by her parents, her beloved husband of 33 years, James (JV) Cabral, and her sister Darlene Abad, Ina is survived by her daughter, Jennifer Cabral, and her grandsons, Trent and Colin Muckleroy. She is survived by sisters, Trula Sattelmaier (husband James) and Shirley Koester (husband John), brother, Horacio Molina (wife Jennifer), and her sister-in-law Sherry Cabral. Ina will be missed by her niece, Abegail Granville, and nephews, Brian and Keith Sattelmaier, Peter and Gabriel Juarez, Eric Martinez, and Vincent Molina, as will her great nieces and nephews, a multitude of cousins, lifelong friends Rayleen Oliver and Jill and Eddie Smalley and other numerous friends.

Family was Ina’s world. We loved our Darling, Ina. Though dementia, along with undue influence, pulled her away from us in her final vulnerable years, we all know that she loved us with all her heart.

May her soul rest in peace.
