I think her first name is Assunta. Her family name is not easy to decipher, could be Ribera.

Looks like to me SIBINA or SIFINA RIPPUTO or Eifina Ripputo. I also thought the first letter might be a 'G' but could find no name to correspond with that.

My opinion is "Tiberia Rizzuto".
Giuseppe "Pippo" Moccaldi

I looked at my handwriting chart and I definitely don't think that first letter is a 'T' on the first name. It looks similar to the record taker's name--Giuseppe- and the name of the Casa Comunale. Your guess on the surname is good. It might be. Have you found Vincenza's (bride) birth record? It will be there also and hopefully more legible. And one more place is Calogero's death record.

The name is Liberia Rizzuto, trust me.
