Teresa L. Gonzalez

January 7, 1959 — April 28, 2022

Teresa Lynn Gatzka-Gonzalez was born on January 7th, 1959 to Joseph and Irma Gatzka in Tampa, Florida. After Teresa graduated from Ysleta in 1977, she went on to study Business and Office Procedures at El Paso Community College. She married her ex-husband Louis Gonzales and had her daughter Crystal.  Terry always enjoyed creating works of art out of the simplest of items making them into extravagant works of art unmatched by anyone.  She always had a green thumb and able to grow just about any plant from seed.  Teresa had a heart of gold willing to do anything to help her loved ones without expecting anything in return. 

Teresa battled cancer for the last several years, never giving up.  Her demonstration of strength, perseverance and love has always guided her through this struggle until finally on April 28, 2022 God called his hummingbird home.  Teresa was 63 years young and full of life and hope when she passed away.

Teresa is survived by her daughter Crystal Rose Gonzalez and her grandson Odin Doporto. Her father Joseph Gatzka Sr. and her siblings, Katherine Maiella, Joseph Gatzka Jr., Veronica Navarro, Valerie Gatzka Millen, Bennett Gatzka, Jennifer Labado, and James Gatzka .
