Obituary of Irene M. Nuccio

Irene M. Nuccio, 99, of Howell Township passed away on Saturday, August 26, 2023 at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune. Irene was born and raised in Redfield, South Dakota and met her husband during World War II while working as a registered nurse.  They settled in Howell Township in 1946 and lived there for seventy-seven years.  Irene worked as a registered nurse at Paul Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood until retiring to raise her family.  With her husband, Andrew, she relished her time traveling. They traveled to all fifty States, cruised and visited many countries throughout Europe to the Middle East and Central America. They were "World Travelers".  Irene was devout catholic and was a parishioner of St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church, Farmingdale.  Throughout the years, she could be found at Howell Lanes many a night.  Irene was always known to keep her house neat and tidy but being Grandma Choo-Choo and spending time with family was all that she cared about.
