Emma Cleveland

Emma Cleveland (nee Cetin), age 94, of Sun City Center, FL (formerly Berwyn, IL), passed away January 5, 2019.

Emma was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Russ; her siblings and their spouses, Edward (Ceil) Cetin, Robert (Penny) Cetin, Lorraine (Robert) Jasinski; and her nephew, Scott Jasinski.

Emma is survived by 6 nieces and nephews, Debbie (Jim) Rixen, Michael (Nancy) Cetin, Randy (Patty) Cetin, Sandie (Bob) Pilipiszyn, Karen (Scott) Kelsey and Carol (Jerry) Chwajol.

Over the years Emma was involved in many clubs in the Berwyn area, including the Berwyn Eagles where her husband Russ was a past president, FOE Ladies Auxiliary, REAC, SNPJ, St. Odilo's and volunteered at the Berwyn Eagles Bingo up thru her 90th birthday when she decided it was time to "retire". She was an avid Chicago sports fans - especially those Cubbies! Emma enjoyed dancing, baking, gardening, crocheting, sewing, making Holiday centerpieces and decorations for clubs she belonged to, handmade all of her greeting cards - her creativity was astounding. She will be dearly missed by her loving family and friends.

I am so sorry to just find this obituary of Emma. We have been exchanging Christmas cards for decades and I was confirming her Florida address that I have when I found this. I worked with Emma at Western Electric, 25th Floor, 20 N. Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL (Civic Opera House) and sat next to Emma. She treated me like a daughter. She taught me so much on baking, sewing and growing house plants. I still have her recipe book she made for me and will make her favorite holiday Cherry Bars for my family this year to celebrate her life. I already feel a void. She will be missed.
