My folks saw this obituary in the Kenosha News and I thought it might be someone in the groups relative.
Ida Vulnero, 77, of Marano Marchesato, Province of Cosenza, Italy, formerly of Kenosha, died Thursday (Aug. 21, 2003) in Italy.
Born in Italy on March 26, 1926, she was the daughter of the late Luigi and Filomena (Muto) Chiappetta. She was educated in the schools of italy.
In 1946, she married Frank Vulnero in Italy.
She lived in kenosha from 1970 - 1983.
Survivors include two brothers, Gaspare of Kenosha, and Giuseppe of Italy; and two sisters, Michelina Mazzei and Gelsomina Metallo, both of Kenosha.
Preceding her in death were two brothers, Charles and Vincenzo; and one sister Amelia Chiappetta.
Happy hunting, Louise Juliani
