ANGIE BRAZIL- BRICKEY – ROSA
February 19, 1928-January 2, 2018
Angeline Brazil was born February 19, 1928, 8:35 pm to Joe S. Brazil and Mary Machado at Sacred Heart Hospital in Hanford. Angie grew up on their 8th Avenue family dairy farm that also farmed corn, alfalfa, and cotton.
Angie graduated from Hanford High School in 1946. She met and married Warren Brickey, who had returned to finish high school after World War II ended. As Angie Brickey she attended Hanford High night school and learned short hand, stenography, and perfected her 100 + words per minute typing skills. She worked as a court stenographer for the Kings County Court System, and Recorders office. Angie worked at Production Credit Association when the Hanford branch first opened its doors for farm loans. She was office supervisor when she retired in 1986.
Angie was very active in Hanford's community either as a member and/or serving as an officer of Hanford Legal Secretaries, Soroptimists, Cabrillo Club, Red Hats, IDES/PFSA Portuguese Society, SPRSI Lodge, St. Brigid Bible Study, Altar Society, Good Shephard Scholarship Fund committee, Central Valley Auxiliary Ladies, Adventist Health Board advisor, and later volunteered at Adventist Health registration and gift shop.
Angie was a proud supporter of St. Rose-McCarthy School, Valley Children's Hospital, St. Vincent de Paul, Salvation Army, and the Hanford police and firefighters and other charities too numerous to list.
After being a widow for several years she met and married Mike Rosa, who had lived 1 mile from where she grew up on 8th Ave. After 2 years of marriage Angie decided to retire in 1986 from PCA. Angie and Mike enjoyed traveling, attending Hanford social events, relaxing in Pismo Beach, and enjoyed their home life on Excelsior Avenue wine vineyard.
After becoming a widow, Angie Rosa continued to run the vineyard until leasing property out, continued to volunteer, and remained being active in her clubs and the community.
Angie is survived by her son, Gene Brickey and his wife Teresa Warmerdam-Brickey from San Jose, Grandson Adam Brickey from San Jose, Granddaughter Sarah Brickey-Cardoza and her husband James Cardoza, and great grandson Nathan Cardoza from Fresno.
