Cynthia Meigs Banik, 67, of Conroe, went to rest peacefully on Friday, November 27, 2015. She was born in Baytown, Texas, on September 29, 1948.

She is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 48 years, Marvin Banik. They were longtime residents of Crosby until moving to Conroe in 1989. Both were proud graduates of Crosby High School where Cynthia was a CHS Twirler, class favorite, and worked in the office.

Some of her hobbies were journaling, genealogy, sewing, shopping, swimming, and spending time with her cousins and grandkids. She also had a passion for travel. Even as she struggled with illness, her greatest motivation to get better was to travel. In this past year, she enjoyed a trip to the Gaylord Texan where she toured ice sculptures and even went snow tubing! In May, she went on a cruise where she enjoyed shopping, slot machines, and great food. She also made several trips to Louisiana to enjoy the casinos.

In addition to her husband, other survivors include her children and grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and long-time friends. She leaves behind daughters and sons-in-law Melissa and Alex Saphos of Pearland and Cyndi and John Westrup of Conroe. She also leaves behind her beloved grandchildren, Christopher Saphos, Alexa Foreman, and Cade Westrup. Also surviving is brother and sister-in-law Tem and Jackie Meigs of Dayton. She was preceded in death by her parents, J.T. and Dorothy Meigs of Crosby and great-grandmother Tava Stewart, of Baytown.

Serving as Pallbearers will be Melvin Banik, Jr., Craig Burgess, Larry Humphrey, Christopher Saphos, Alex Saphos, and John Westrup. Honorary Pallbearers will be Melvin Banik, Sr. and Tem Meigs.
