Born in Cosenza, Calabria, Italy, on June 8, 1937, she was the daughter of the late Alfredo and Ettora (Torchia) Rizzitano.
On October 21, 1967, she wed Marino C. Curi in Cosenza, Italy and shortly thereafter immigrated to Kenosha, WI. He preceded her in death on February 1, 2003.
Nina was a very loving, selfless and prayerful woman. Her greatest joy was in cooking and taking care of her beloved family. She was employed part-time as a seamstress at Jockey and later as a cook at various nursing homes as well as the Kenosha Unified School District. She enjoyed gardening, walking, dancing, praying and being with others. She was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church. In the end, the Alzheimer’s-type Dementia had taken many of her precious memories. However, she never lost her love of music, dancing and especially of people. She loved everyone and they loved her through it all. Now, that’s amore!
Survivors include her four children, Tony Curi, Anna (Michael) Nuzzo, Francesca (Joseph) Capelli and Carolina (Robert) Bado, all of Kenosha; her brother, Filippo (Letizia) Rizzitano of Kenosha; her sister, Dina (Guido) Vitali of Marche, Italy; and her ten grandchildren, Makaia and Antonio Curi, Drake and Luke Nuzzo, George, Tommasina and Paul Capelli, and Zachary, Maxwell and Julia Bado.
Visitation will be held on Thursday, March 7th, at St. Anne Catholic Church from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the Mass at 12:00 noon. Entombment will follow at All Saints Mausoleum.
