KULPMONT — Irene (Augustine) Pupo peacefully departed this life at the young age of 92, Friday, Feb. 19, 2021, at Mount Carmel Senior Living Community. She was a long-time resident of Kulpmont.

Irene was preceded in death by her loving husband, Joseph R. Pupo; and her son, Paul J. Pupo.

The family would like to thank the staff, nurses and CNA’s at Mount Carmel Senior Living Community. The care and comfort they provided enriched not only Irene’s life but her family’s as well.
