Antoinette Bove' was born on September 30, 1933 in Mineola NY. She was a surviving twin to parents Dominick and Mary Argento. Antoinette's parents retired to Golden Gate in 1969, and she later followed them to Naples twenty years later with her husband Anthony Bové.

She was an accomplished wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, and friend. Her involvement in the community included the Women's Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus, St. Elizabeth Seton, she was a Carmelite Sister, and participated in a number of groups and volunteer efforts in and around Golden Gate and Naples. From her hometown of Westbury NY, Antoinette was involved in the Dell Assunta Society as Vice President and later with the Saint Anthony Society where she held the same post.

Antoinette's warm and selfless heart would expand for those in need. She was a good listener, and a great story teller. She loved to laugh and she was rarely short of smiles.

She believed and often said 'in the end all the pieces of the puzzle would fit together' - her faith kept her strong and clear about what she could change, and what she could not. She shared this belief with her family and friends that she loved and cherished deeply as they worked together to help her through a very difficult and challenging year.

Antoinette passed away on December 23, 2010, and is survived by her husband of 56 years, Anthony Bove, her daughter Gina Bove of Naples, son Peter Bove of Montauk, NY, her daughter and son-in-law Maria and Seth Schiller of Naples, and her youngest son, Anthony Jr. and his fiancée Teresa Rosato of Huntington NY. Antoinette also leaves behind her two adoring grandchildren, her treasures; Claudia Maris Bove and Nicholas Bove, and her oldest and dearest family friends Belle and Henri Musto.

A visitation will be held Monday, December 27th 2010, from 2-4 & 7-9 PM at Hodges Funeral Home at Naples Memorial Gardens.
