Catalina Ochoa Garza Obituary

Catalina Ochoa Garza, 73, passed away on April 30, 2016, in San Antonio, Texas. She was born on June 1, 1942 in Alamogordo, N.M., to Alfredo and Maria Ochoa.

"Katie" grew up in Alamogordo where she married and moved to El Paso, Texas, where they made their home and raised their four children. She was a loving daughter, homemaker, wife and a wonderful mother. While living in El Paso, she was involved in many activities with her family and friends. She traveled all over Texas with her husband for his work as a welder. Her husband Jessie passed away in 1999 due to illness.

Katie and her daughter Alma moved together to San Antonio in 1999, to be close with her sons and family and start a new life. She loved San Antonio but always considered Alamogordo her home. Last week her husband and true love came for her. They are now watching over their family that their love created.
We would like to thank everyone for the love, wishes, condolences and support.
