Angeline Maria Dicks (nee DiSalvo)

Nov. 3, 1922 July 4, 2010

Angeline Maria Dicks (nee DiSalvo) of Waukesha passed away Sunday, July 4, 2010, at Waukesha Memorial Hospital with her family by her side. She was 87 years old.

Angeline was born in Cumberland on Nov. 3, 1922, the second daughter of the late Anthony and Louise (Schullo) DiSalvo. Valedictorian of her high school class, she received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Minnesota. Angeline and her husband, Malcolm P. Dicks, raised four children, moving to the Waukesha area from St. Paul, Minn., in the 1960s. They were also parishioners of St. William Catholic Church. Angeline worked as a medical technologist for Waukesha Memorial Hospital for more than 20 years, retiring in 1986. In later years, she fulfilled her dream of traveling to Europe, Egypt and the Holy Land. Angeline loved to knit, garden, do crossword puzzles and learn Italian, but her true passion was her family. Caring for, nurturing, worrying over, taking pride in, and remaining deeply involved with the lives and accomplishments of her four children, seven grandchildren and five greatgrandchildren was the joy of her life.

Angeline is survived by her devoted children, Andrea L. (Douglas) Dickson of Naperville, Ill., Malcolm "Tony" Dicks of Oconomowoc, John Dicks of Gainesville, Va., and Paula Dicks of Waukesha. She will also be fondly remembered by her grandchildren, Alexandra, Mark, Elizabeth, Katharine, Sarah, Margaret and James; and her greatgrandchildren, Hazyle, Emma, Abigail, Logan and Samantha. Additionally, she leaves a brother-in-law, Howard Grahek of West Allis, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husband, Malcolm; and her siblings, Marion Baker, Carmella (Carmel) Grahek and Anthony "Bucky" DiSalvo.

The visitation for Angeline will be held from 11:15 a.m. until the noon funeral Mass on Thursday, July 8, at St. William Catholic Church, 440 N. Moreland Blvd., Waukesha, WI 53188. Interment will be in Calvary Cemetery in Duluth, Minn., on Friday, July 9.
