Martha Theresia Cuzick of Stockdale, Texas entered into eternal rest at her home on Thursday, June 27, 2019 at the age of 86.
Martha was born to Franz Xavier and Kreszenzia (Haussler) Stegmaier on October 27, 1932 in Ay Kreis Neu Ulm, Germany. In 1958 Martha married the love of her life William (Ted) Cuzick and soon after moved to the United States to begin her life as a devoted military wife and mother to their five children. In addition to raising their children, she was an accomplished business manager in both the restaurant and retail industries, as well as volunteering her time to the Fort Sam Houston Optimist’s Club and Brooke Army Medical Center. After Ted and Martha retired in 1996, they moved to their ranch in Stockdale to enjoy life in the country and to continue to pursue her many talents and hobbies. She was an accomplished painter, loved crafting and sewing, and enjoyed spending time in her garden. She also loved reading, traveling and developed a love for cruising. Above all, her greatest passion was her love for her family. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all who knew her.
