Vito Nicola Vitulli M.D., OB/GYN Notice
Vitulli, Vito Nicola M.D. OB/GYN Age 86, March 22, 1927 - February 12, 2014, of Oconomowoc and formerly of South Milwaukee. Beloved husband of the late Virginia Lucille (nee Dawicki). Loving father of Mary Jo Wilkinson (Kenneth), Joseph Paul Vitulli, Kathryn Ann Vitulli (fiancé Gary Schroeder), Gina Marie Vitulli, Angela Jean Hamilton (Gary), and his special baby girl, Vita Vitulli. Dearest grandfather of Christina, Nicholas, Michael, Celeste, Isabella, Samuel, Gabriella, Francesca, Olivia and Dominique. Devoted son of Giuseppe and Giovanna (nee Parente), and Antonetta (nee Quaranta). Dear older brother of Donald (Frances), Thomas (Marie), the late Angelo (Maria Lucrezia), John (late Carol), Grace (Anthony) Sgaramella. Dear brother-in-law of Betty Dawicki (late Gregory). Survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, former patients, colleagues and countless friends and neighbors. Vito immigrated with his mother and 3 siblings from Mola Di Bari, Italy on the S.S. Rex. He arrived at The Port of New York on October 1, 1936, where he was reunited with his father Giuseppe, who had already become a U.S. citizen. The family resided in Chicago. He was drafted into the U.S. Army on Aug. 20, 1945 and served in Panama. He was a graduate of Eastern Illinois University and Marquette University School of Medicine, 1957. He met his future wife Virginia "Ginny" (an RN at Muirdale TB Sanatorium), and after their first date he knew she was "the one". They married on June 15, 1957. He served his residency at St Joseph's Hospital, was Chief of Staff at Trinity Memorial, and on staff at St Francis and St Luke's Hospitals. Dr. Vitulli delivered over 8,000 beautiful babies into this world, and still in recent years remembered most all of his former patients by name. As Patriarch of the Vitulli family, he treasured and adored his family most of all. Vito loved his time at his lake cottage in Rhinelander with his family. A man of unending generosity and unfathomable knowledge, a teacher to all, and even in his final days he mentored the nurses who cared for him. We will all miss his wit, humor, off colored jokes, singing, amazing cooking and of course his famous card tricks. The Vitulli family would like to extend a special warm "thank you" to the many doctors and nurses who had provided such dedicated and compassionate care. Rest in peace Dad! Rest in peace Grandpa! We love you and will miss you every day! Oh yeah and .."When do we eat around here"? Visitation, Tuesday February 18, 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM at Molthen-Bell Funeral Home.
