Irene A. Covello passed away peacefully on January 5, 2021 at Danbury Hospital in Danbury, CT.   Irene was born on January 26, 1949 in Michaelstadt, Germany to the late Ilse (Hutter) and John Piatek. Wife of Joseph Anthony Covello.

Irene was a warm-hearted woman with a compassionate soul. She delighted in caring for others, always putting their needs first. She loved people so much that she made it her lifelong career to care for them as a nurse at Danbury Hospital.  Irene had a smile that would light up a room, and her warmth spread to every person around her. She found great joy in the outdoors, especially while gardening or watching hummingbirds. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.  Irene will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Irene leaves behind her beloved husband Joseph Anthony Covello, her loving children Joseph J. Covello (Ines) and Congetta Marino, her siblings Regina Hall, Eddie  Piatek, John Piatek, and Tony Piatek. She is also survived by her grandchildren Joseph A. Covello, Brandon J. Covello, Shalimar V. Troche and Chanel J. Troche as well as many loving nieces and nephews.
