Angela L Call

July 9, 1917 ~ January 9, 2024 (age 106) 106 Years Old


Angela Call (Bruzzone), long time resident of Danville completed her journey on earth at 106 years of age. She was born in San Francisco, but lived almost her entire life in Contra Costa county.  

She was raised on a farm in an area that was once called San Pablo Gardens where many Italian immigrants owned produce farms.  She attended Catholic schools until she graduated from Presentation High school.  While in high school, she discovered oil painting. She further developed her technique by taking classes at the Richmond Art Center and continued to paint into her early 90's. Her paintings have graced many homes of relatives and friends.

 At age 22 Angela met the love of her life, Ralph Call and their happy union  continued until  Ralph passed away in 1990.  The couple's life centered around family and their second family, the Richmond Yacht Club.  When she passed she was the oldest member of the yacht club in its history. Angela also volunteered at the Friends of Discovery thrift shop in Danville for over 30 years.

She is survived by her two sons and their spouses, Frank and Roberta Call, Ralph and Jackie Call, and the daughter she never had, Lynne Call.  In addition she is survived by her five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, one sister, Marie Mirante, one brother, Alfred Bruzzone and numerous nieces and nephews.

Angela is proceeded in death by her husband Ralph, her parents, Antonio and Lina Bruzzone and eight siblings. We will all miss her dearly as the trunk of our family tree, the matriarch of a large extended Italian family.
