Vita Ripollino Bovio Obituary

We are saddened to announce the passing of Vita Ripollino Bovio (Nonna). Vita was born on April 11, 1934, in Caltanisetta Sicily, Italy. She was a child from the World War II time period and had many stories that were engraved in her heart as it was a challenging time to grow up. As a young child her family migrated to the north, and she was raised in northern Italy in a beautiful city called Torino. She loved her Torino and she talked of it with great pride.

In 1966, Vita was married to Clement Mario Bovio. Clement was an Engineer at Exxon for 40 years and was sent to Torino to work with Fiat in 1964, and that is where he met his beautiful bride. They were married in Italy and then came to the US to live their lives. In September of 1966, the love of Vita’s life arrived with the birth of her only child, Kathy, in Southampton, New York. Vita loved to travel and often traveled between the United States and Italy. After many years in Torino, Vita eventually moved to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida to live with her daughter Kathy, and her husband, Michael Gibson, and grandchildren, Daniella and Michael, Jr. (The Michaels were known as “Michaelone” and “Michaelino,” respectively).

Vita loved spending time with family, and cherished her summers on Martha’s Vineyard where she had many friends and family. She loved club life and was well known by members and staff at the clubs that Kathy and Michael were affiliated with. Everyone loved Vita.

Vita was predeceased by her mother and father, Catena and Giuseppe Ripollino, husband Clement Bovio, brothers Salvatore Parisi Giuseppe Ripollino and Tomaso Ripollino. She leaves behind her brother, Lino Ripollino of Torino, Italy; daughter Kathy Bovio Gibson, son-in-law Michael Gibson, both of Port St Lucie, Florida and grandchildren Daniella Bovio Gibson of North Palm Beach, Florida and Michael James Gibson, Jr. of Port St Lucie, Florida. She also leaves her step-son, Vincent Bovio and his wife, Nina, from Brighton, Michigan and Ormond Beach, Florida and their families.
