Zulema Rosa Echerivel Felix was tragically taken from us in a rollover accident on June 6, 2008. She was born on 4 December 1977 at TMC in Tucson, AZ. She graduated from Salpointe Catholic HS and Pima CC. She co-founded RZ Concrete LLC with her father and worked side by side with him until her passing. She was a big hearted person with an infectious smile. There wasn't anything she wouldn't do for anyone, including strangers. She was a loving and caring mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, cousin and friend. She is preceded in death by her grandmother, Petra Varela Echerivel and Ramona and Jesus Felix. She is survived by her four year old twin daughters, Jordan and Alexandria Felix, her pride and joy. She was a wonderful parent and they were her life. Her tender touch and unselfish care of them was reflective of her unconditional love for them. Jordan and Alex called Zulema, "Mima" and they adored her. She also leaves behind her parents, Zulema Echerivel and Ramon Felix; sister, Francesca Rae Felix; grandfather, Augusto Echerivel; godparents, Teresa and Arturo Prieto. Also survived by aunts, Irene Burgess, Petra Echerivel and Rose Rule (Wayne); uncles, Santiago Varela (Norma), Luis Echerivel (Rosemary); cousins, Arturo Prieto (Sophia), Petra Prieto (Hano), Julianna and Olivia Prieto, Renee Odom (Josh), Jenna Burgess, Celeste Rule, James, Joey, and David Varela, Luis, Augusto, and Marcos Echerivel, Jimmy Echerivel and the Felix-Sanders families. She leaves a tremendous void in the lives of all she touched. We thank God for her life and await our reunion with her in eternal life. May she rest in peace with our Holy Father and Blessed Mother. "Where There Is Great Love, There Is Miracles". She was and will continue to be our Miracle. Visitation will be held at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 602 W.
