Lupe Pichardo

Lupe Jordan Pichardo, 89, of Mannington, passed away on Feb. 10, 2014, due to cardiac arrest at Fitzwater’s Assisted Living in Fairmont.

Lupe was born in Omar, on Sept. 9, 1924. She was married to Paul Pichardo on March 14, 1942; they were married 41 years until his death.

Lupe worked as a bookkeeper at the First Exchange Bank in Mannington for 15 plus years as well as Hartley’s in Fairmont.

She enjoyed her gardening, taking care of her home and visiting with her family and friends. She was a good-hearted Christian, fun-loving, unselfish wife, mother and grandmother. Our lives have changed for the good because of her love and care. She was also actively involved in contributing to St. Jude Children’s Hospital and volunteered her time in tax preparation for anyone in need.

Lupe is survived by her son, Paul G. Pichardo of Hundred, and her daughter, Mary Ann Gibson of Potomac Falls, Va. She is also survived by her beloved five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, and other family and friends.

Lupe is preceded in death by her husband; six brothers, Gene Jordan, Lois Jordan, Edward Jordan, Alfonso Jordan, Albert and Hank Jordan; and one sister, Alice Hernandez of Omar.

A Memorial Mass will be celebrated this Saturday, at 1 p.m., at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church located at 204 Furbee Ave., Mannington, with the Rev. Father Douglas Sutton as celebrant. Interment will follow at the Mannington Memorial Park Cemetery.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Hutson Funeral Home. Condolences may be accessed at

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

We want to give special thanks to Ruby Memorial Hospital medical staff for the exceptional care and love that was given to Lupe (Grandma) during her stay. The family of Lupe Pichardo wishes also to thank our family friend Nick Fonte of Fairmont for all of his support and the Fitzwater’s Assisted Living staff.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
