Valerie Elizabeth Cirillo Bunch of Tarrytown, who was born and raised in Irvington, passed away Tuesday, March 30, at age 41.

Valerie was born to Joseph and Janice Cirillo on Feb. 28, 1980. She was one of a kind. Her infectious smile and positive attitude always lit up the room. Her children were her purpose. Motherhood came naturally to her. She loved caring for children. She worked harder than anyone and played just as hard. She worked as a preschool teacher, nanny for many families, and postpartum doula. She loved vacationing with family and friends. She spent her summers on the beach with her favorite people. She will be remembered for her laughter and the joy that she gave everyone she came in contact with. 

Valerie is survived by the love of her life, and husband for 11 years, Sean David Buch; her adoring children Cole, Donte, and Giselle; her sisters Melissa Cirillo and Samantha (Randoln) Hidalgo; her nieces and nephews Ashley, Mia, Dorian, Milo, and Ryder; and her father-in-law Donald R. Bunch.

In lieu of flowers, send memorial donations to the March of Dimes.
