Beverly Celia Ramblas (Arrighi)
10-13-1928 to 09-11-2015

She was born blessed to love many things in her life, starting with our beautiful city by the bay, San Francisco. When she was young and going to school, during summer vacation she and her girlfriends would put on shows in her garage for the neighborhood kids. During World War II they would sing "He's 1A in the Army and He's Al in My Heart". She graduated as one of the valedictorians from Galileo High School in 1946.
She married Joseph, a WWII Army veteran, on October 5, 1957 and later moved to Tiburon, living in the suburbs for the first time in their lives, which they referred to as "the country." She couldn't have been happier for the change, for it was there that she raised her three loving sons Steven, Richard and Joseph, whom she referred to as Stevie, Ricky and Joey.
As she raised her sons and after they were grown, she always found time to volunteer for many different causes. Two of her favorites were Saint Hilary's Catholic Church, where she was a parishioner and a member of the women's group, which she was president of for many years. She made many lasting friendships there through out the years. She also loved working for the Tiburon Thrift Shop and was also on the board there many years. Driving Tiburon Boulevard to either of these two locations, off to her right across the water was the Golden Gate Bridge, which she walked across the first day it was opened and her beautiful San Francisco. In the neighborhood where she raised her family there were several summers that she helped put on a street festival along with other members of the Belveron Association, and she composed a song about the neighborhood entitled "Oh Belveron."
She is survived by her sons and four grandchildren, Mariah, Jason, Aidan and Dominic, and many nieces, nephews and friends. Throughout her life she loved movies and one of her favorites was "The Wizard of Oz" — in writing this I am remembering a line spoken by the Wizard to the Tin Man when he wants to get a heart, something to the effect of "My friend, in life it is not how much you love, but how much you are loved by others." Beverly will always be loved and remembered by us all.
