Adele Frunzi - Teachey

April 27, 1951 - February 21, 2010

Adele A. Frunzi-Teachey 58, of Wilmington, NC formerly of Philadelphia, Pa died 1:50 A.M, Sunday, February 21, 2010 at Lower Cape Fear Hospice and LifeCareCenter after a long and courageous battle with metastatic endometrial cancer.

She was the beloved wife of William Teachey and dear sister of Diana M. Frunzi of Horsham, Pa.

Adele was born April 27, 1951 in Germantown Hospital in Philadelphia, eldest child of Edward and Diana Frunzi. She graduated from Chestnut Hill College with a Bachelors degree in Chemistry and received her Masters from St. Josephs University. She worked many years as a Chemical Engineer at the Cape Fear DuPont Plant, where she met her husband William. She was a force of nature and will be remembered by her family and friends for her unending zest for life. Adele lived every day of her life like it was a party; even towards the end through tremendous suffering, her sense of humor remained in tact. She always had a soft spot in her heart for animals, and leaves behind her two Calico cats Pinky and Mickey and several Cockatiels.

A celebration of her Adele’s life will be held this spring.
