Donna Cirullo Moreschini of Pueblo – Rest in Peace

Donna was a kind and beautiful person whose nickname was “Honey.” My sister was a lifelong Pueblo resident and married one of the nicest people known, Leo Moreschini. Donna and Leo owned and lived on what is a Ciruli corner in the St. Charles Mesa, the home of members of the family since it arrived from Schiavi di Abruzzo, Italy in the 1890s. The rich farming area was the original home of Ciruli Oil and Ciruli Brothers Produce (now in Rio Rico, AZ).

Donna was born in 1928 and was one of the last of an early generation of Ciruli children that remained in Pueblo and the Mesa and she and Leo fostered family gatherings and maintained homemade food traditions. Coming together to make ravioli for Christmas was a family and Mesa favorite event. We miss Donna and Leo, and their passing has made all they did for the family and the Mesa even more appreciated.

Floyd that you for your beautiful words. My sweet mother was one of a kind and is already missed immensely.
