Inez Carreiro Obituary

Inez Carreiro was born on September 11, 1946 to John and Palmira Pimentel on the island of Flores, Azores.  Inez lived in Flores with her nine siblings until the age of 10; from which she and her family then traveled to their new home in the United States.

The Pimentel family first settled in Penngrove, CA.  It was there, many years later that Inez met and found her true love, Frank Carreiro.  After both had graduated high school, they got married and settled down together and built a wonderful life with their two sons, Shane and Shawn.  Inez attended and graduated beauty school all while tending to her new family and home.  She loved taking care of her family and later found a career as a Cook at Lemoore Liberty Elementary School.  She later became Kitchen Manager and retired after more than 24 years of devoted service.

Inez was a well-known figure in the community and made many friends during her lifetime.  She was involved in many clubs and committees.  Inez was also a member and President of the Lady of Fatima Church in Laton and St. Ann’s Hall in Riverdale along with her beloved late husband, Frank.  Inez was also a member of St. Anthony of Hanford and the Portuguese Fraternal Society of America (PFSA).

Inez loved helping others.  She enjoyed making crafts and made beautiful wreaths and floral arrangements, among many other things.  Inez was a devoted Catholic her whole life and attended mass regularly.

After retirement, she found a lot of joy doing the work she loved such as, working with kids again as a Yard Duty at the Hanford Elementary School District, becoming a Red Hatter, and spending more time with her grandkids.

She leaves behind her loving sons, Shane and Shawn, their wives Sue and Stephanie, her grandchildren Danielle, Shane, Seth and Nick, her Godchildren, and many, many nieces and nephews.  Her siblings Joe and his wife Esther, Al and his wife Theresa, and Belle and her husband Tony.

Inez will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all of the many people who knew her.  Inez touched the hearts of a lot of people and her legacy of love, kindness, compassion, and loyalty will be cherished forever.
