Angeline Judith Briski was born on January 16, 1923, on the family farm in Greenwood, the daughter of Matt and Katherine (Zagar) Briski. She was the 8th of 14 children. She spoke fondly of childhood memories and family events. She graduated from Maple Ridge School, near Greenwood, WI and later received a certificate from the School of LaSalle, Chicago, where she studied millinery techniques while working at various factory jobs during World War II.
Angeline returned to Greenwood to marry Florian Gulczinski, the love of her life, on June 15, 1944, at St. Hedwig’s Catholic Church in Thorp, WI. They purchased a farm south of Greenwood in 1945, where she lived until 1988. In 1988, Angeline moved to the city of Greenwood. She resided in Greenwood through February 2013. At that time she moved to Clark County Health Care Center.
She was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church and was an active member of St. Ann's Society.
She is survived by four children: Judith (Orville) Loberg of Neillsville, WI; Janice Marx (Dick Rislove) of Rochester, MN; Rita Furlong of Shoreview, MN; and Rodney (Dawn) Gulczinski of Big Lake, MN; 9 grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren; 3 sisters: Kay Gulczinski of New Brighton, MN, Dolores Lendosky of Greenwood, Rose Malaszuk of Owen; 2 brothers: Robert (Taimi) Briski of Greenwood, John (Florence) Briski of Greenwood; several nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Angeline was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Florian, who passed away in 1975; granddaughter Kelly Furlong, 5 brothers: Matt, Tony, Frank, Ted and Albert Briski; and 3 sisters: Mary Malnar, Elizabeth Stimac and Julia Vivoda.
She was a kind and generous person who will be missed by family and friends.
Angeline's family is thankful for the care she received at the Clark County Health Care Center, St. Joseph's Hospital and especially the House of the Dove.
