CHAPARRO, RITA, 81, born in Ivera, Italy, passed away on April 13, 2020. Private Cremation Services. Rita was born to Giovanni Giubasso and Angiolina Giubasso on January 6, 1939 in Ivrea, Italy and had an older brother, Franco Giubasso. She was brought up Catholic and although she welcomed all religions, her love, heart, eyes and trust were always in Jesus. The family left Italy due to World War II (1939 – 1945) and moved to Venezuela where they began their new life in a new Country. There Rita met her first Husband, Garabet (Garo) Markar Mouradian, father of her three children, Angiolina Casales, Marco Mouradian and Gisabel Mouradian. Garo Mouradian was a business man and Rita was a house wife that took care of her three children, her husband and their pets. The family enjoyed many happy, loving and beautiful years together, vacations, family reunions where all her kids, nieces and nephews played. They would cook, eat, dance together, shared many holidays together and loved each other. They would camp at the beach for entire weekends and later to the beach house, and on many boat rides, as Garo was an avid boater and showed his family the pleasures of being outdoors and enjoying God’s creation by the sea and the beaches of Venezuela. Rita was an exceptional daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister in law, aunt, mother in law, and friend. She was a true friend and always welcomed her home and assistance to others in order to help them as best she could. She was also an animal lover and rescuer. She taught her friends and family how beautiful it is to love and care of animals and would cook complete meals for her pets and her friend’s pets. Lately she would cook for her dog Sasha and for Olga and David’s doggie, Pepe, neighbors whom she loved very much. After losing her first husband, Garo Mouradian, due to his health, which she took care of 24/7 till his passing, Rita decided to move to Miami, Florida. She began working hard and became a sales person who was charming and top seller. This she did to help bring her two daughters and grandchild, Joel Caccaro to Miami, Florida for them to have a better life. Thanks to God, Rita was able to bring her daughters, Angiolina Casales and Gisa Mouradian, along with her grandchild, Joel Caccaro to live in Florida and she helped them get on their feet and get their citizenship. Through this time, she met her second Husband, Pedro Chaparro, a very well known trumpet player and wonderful man, whom they shared many beautiful and happy years together. Pedro loved her very much, her children and extended family and they lived in a beautiful condominium in Miami Beach, Florida for many years sharing a wonderful, musical and fun life together, until his passing. Rita and her late husband Pedro visited her son, Marco Mouradian, daughter in law, Paola and grandchildren, Marco Polo, Noelia and Lucas in Venezuela many times. Always taking gifts and anything they needed at the time and trying to help them as much as she could. When Marco and his family moved from the mountain to Lagunillas and began to build their new home in Merida, Rita and Pedro decided to build a little casita next to her son’s home, so they could visit more often and spend time together, sharing and loving each other, which they did and enjoyed very much. Rita was very fond of cooking great meals for her family and friends. She delighted them with her Italian delicious dishes and learned the Middle Eastern cuisine through her first husband, Garo and also adopted the Venezuelan culture and cuisine, making the best Hallacas. She delighted many with her culinary expertise and 5 star dishes. Always sharing the best recipes with all her loved ones and friends. She would come up with delicious 5 Star meals in a moment’s time and with limited resources. She loved to knit and crochet and taught her daughters and many friends to knit and crochet as well. She also loved to paint and painted many beautiful paintings. She loved music and her favorites, to name a few, Il Volo, Andrea Bocelli. She loved to sing and play her favorite music around the house. She learned to use the internet, Google (Googlelina as we would call her), IPad, IPhone and loved to communicate with all her family and friends through the internet. She would always send her family and dear friends sweet messages, jokes and natural medicinal remedies and information that could help them have a healthier and better life. She was an exceptional human being, elegant, caring, fun, playful, loving, considerate, non‐judgmental, giving, protecting and provider to all whom needed a smile or helping hand. She loved her family and friends very much. She also loved life and family reunions. She is now enjoying everlasting life and glory with our Lord and all her loved ones that preceded her.
