Adeline Marie Trickey, a former elementary school teacher in Fairfax County, died Jan. 15 in Newport, Ore., following complications from surgery and vascular disease. She was 66.

Born April 14, 1939, in Newton, Mass., Mrs. Trickey primarily was raised in Massachusetts and graduated from Ayer High School, in Ayer, Mass., in 1956.

After graduating from Framingham State College in 1960 with a bachelor’s degree in education, she moved to Northern Virginia and taught elementary school in Fairfax County for 33 years.

More than half of her teaching years were spent in Alexandria at Bren Mar Elementary School and Cameron Elementary School.

Mrs. Trickey retired in 1994 and taught English as a Second Language as a volunteer for several years before moving in 1999 to Lancaster County, Va., where her family had maintained a second home since 1978.

She moved to Newport in October.

Survivors include her husband of 30 years, Alan Trickey of Newport; son David Trickey of Green Bay, Wis.; foster son Robert O’Neill of Falls Church, Va.; sister Jane Ward of Easton, Md.; sister-in-law Kathleen Trickey of Santa Fe, N.M.; two granddaughters; one niece and one nephew.

A celebration of Mrs. Trickey’s life will be held April 14 at the family home in Newport. Memorial contributions may be made to the National Foundation for Cancer Research.
