Mary E. Liparulo, 86, a longtime resident of both Archbald and Jermyn PA, passed away peacefully at her wonderful care center Forest City Nursing Home on May 30, 2020.
Mary is survived by her children Joseph and Kim Liparulo Jr (Jermyn PA), James and Karen Liparulo (Jermyn PA), Maria Liparulo (Tampa FL) and Beth and TJ Maxwell (Tewksbury NJ). She was adored by her six granddaughters Krista and Chris DiRienzo (Peckville PA), Katie and Chris Fratamico (Scranton PA), Sarah and Mike Ridder (Jermyn PA), Evalyn Audrey, and Vivian Maxwell (Tewksbury NJ). She has 2 great grandsons, Enzo Fratamico and Matteo Ridder, that were so lucky to get to meet her and love her. Mary is also survived by her baby sister Theresa Kissolovage (Daytona FL). She also has so many wonderful nieces, nephews, and cousins that were all loved by her as well.
For those lucky enough to know Mary, she was the kindest, most loving and compassionate person they had ever met. Her long life was fully lived with loving family, great friends, great food, and a passion for giving to others. She exuded joy, love, and selflessness her entire life. Her favorite thing was to cook for people to share some of her love and light with them through her food. She was one of those few people you meet in your life that truly has made this world a better, kinder, loving place and we are all blessed to have been touched by her love.
Her family in heaven has been waiting for her patiently…. She joins her beloved husband of 65 years Joseph Liparulo Sr, her parents Frank and Mary Altier, her siblings Frank, Joseph, Alexander, Patrick, John, Anthony, Thomas, Catherine, Margaret, Vera, Delia, Lucy, and her youngest granddaughter Vivian Helene Maxwell.
An intimate memorial service will be held for the immediate family due to the coronavirus restrictions enforced by the state.
