Ciruli Brothers' Ceva Ann Ciruli Passes Away
GREEN VALLEY, AZ - It is with heavy hearts that Ciruli Brothers announces the passing of Ceva Ann Ciruli, matriarch of both the company and the Ciruli family. Since 1967, Ceva served as a pillar of the southern Arizona community, where she cultivated life-long friendships and devoted her time to family and friends.
According to a press release, Ceva always put others’ needs above her own, and those who had the privilege of knowing her will remember her beautiful and radiant smile and ability to give warmth and joy in abundance. In the late seventies, she volunteered as an EMT with the Tubac Fire Department and most recently devoted spare time to the Santa Cruz County Cowbelles and the Old Mothers Club. Ceva also had a natural affinity for connecting with others, and she enjoyed supporting industry and community events.
Ceva is survived by her children Chuck and Chris and their wives Kimber and Julie, respectively; her loving grandchildren Siena, Sammy, Frankie, Parker, and Ivy; her brother Richard Tucker; her nephew Scott Tucker and niece Tracey Tucker Aslin; her aunt Shirley; the Layton family; and former husband Chuck Ciruli. She is preceded in death by her parents, Samuel and Ceva Tucker, and her uncle Bud Layton. She will be greatly missed by her family, many friends, and all the Ciruli Brothers staff.
Services will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, February 08, 2019, at Valley Presbyterian Church in Green Valley, AZ. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Cruz County, one of Ceva’s favorite charities.
