Beautiful Teacher Passes Away After Being Swallowed Up By Floodwaters While Hiking With Her Husband In The Mountains

“Christy had a way of making people feel her light and love upon meeting her. She had a love for all, her family most of all.”

“Christy was a devoted mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend to so many, and her loss is devastating to all.”

The Akins Early College High School, where Christy was a teacher, took to Facebook to share a post on her after the tragic news of her passing.

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Ms. Christina Garcia Mata,” the Akins Early College High School wrote.

“She was a kind soul who always had a huge smile on her face and made friends with everyone. She will be deeply missed by all staff as well as her students.”

“Akins will not be the same without her. We ask that you say a prayer for her family during this hard time.”
