Catherine Alvina Teach

Catherine Alvina Teach (Honer), 90, of New River, Arizona passed away April 28, 2020 with her family by her side. She was also known as Cathy and Kitty. She was born to parents William and Margaret Honer in Ithaca, Wisconsin on February 16, 1930. She graduated from Ithaca High School. She was married to Charles Edward Teach in 1949. They lived in Wisconsin and then moved to Phoenix, Arizona. Catherine is survived by her husband Charles, daughters Cyndy, Mary, Frances, Jackie and Cathie; her sons Ken and Charles and a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her son Anthony passed before her in 2016. Catherine was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother who was an avid sports fan of the Green Bay Packers, the Phoenix Suns, and the Arizona Diamondbacks. She loved to read the newspaper and completing the crossword puzzle every day and never backed down from a game of Cribbage. Her strong Catholic faith and belief in our Lord Jesus Christ was witnessed in every moment. Catherine was a fighter and even as her health declined, she always managed to smile. She was our sunshine. Visit for online condolences.

My condolences to the Teach family. I grew up with her kids in the late 50s and 60s in Phoenix and always saw an Angel in her looks. I'm sure she is now. RIP
