Emma Cleveland

Emma Cleveland (nee Cetin), age 94, of Sun City Center, Fla. (formerly Berwyn, Ill.) 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 six 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 through her 90th birthday when she decided it was time to “retire.” She was an avid Chicago sports fan — especially those Cubbies! Emma enjoyed dancing, baking, gardening, crocheting, sewing, making holiday centerpieces and decorations for clubs she belonged to and handmade all of her greeting cards — her creativity was astounding. 

She will be dearly missed by her loving family and friends.  Expressions of sympathy can be mailed in care of Sun City Center Funeral Home, 1951 Rickenbacker Dr., Sun City Center, FL 33573 or online at
