Obituary

Irma Colpo, 94, passed away Saturday, February 8th of natural causes.

Born in Bakerton Pennsylvania, the third daughter of Frederick and Carmella (Stanga) Pozzini, she lived a long life, full of simple joy and laughter. She gave generously to family and friends as well as to those less fortunate, who never knew of her kindness but benefited from it, nonetheless. She welcomed strangers to her table, to break bread and share a meal. Irma loved to travel, visit with family and friends, play cards and dance and she always enjoyed a good joke! A member of Holy Family Catholic Church, Irma found great comfort in praying the daily rosary.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 45 years, Albert (Barney) Colpo; her daughters, Janet Colpo and Laura Peck; sister, Tina Leonard; brothers Reno Pozzini, Albert Pozzini and Carl Pozzini; and her son-in-law, Alfred "Buzz" Daigneau. She is survived by her children, JoAnn Colpo, Jean Daigneau, Dave Colpo and Ron Colpo; grandchildren and great grandchildren; sisters, Frances Stanga, Inez Stanga and Rose Smith; as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family.
