Jennie M. (D’Antonino) Lupino, 94, passed away March 13, 2021. Born in Providence, she was a daughter of the late Giuseppe and Maragret (Buglio) D’Antonino and wife of the late Joseph R. Lupino.
Jennie grew up in the heart of Federal Hill in Providence RI. She graduated from Classical high school in 1944. Jennie began working at the Walsh-Kaiser Shipyard in Cranston RI. Jennie and her late husband Joseph Lupino started a business in Warwick in the early 1950s known as J&J Jewelry in Warwick RI. After a few years they decided that type of business wasn't for them and because Jennie loved pizza so much, her late husband Joseph decided that they should open a pizza business. They became the proud owners of a big staple in the Warwick community, Lupino's Pizza for over 55 years. She was also an avid parishioner of St. Kevin's Church for many years. Jennie loved her community and all of their customers as much as she loved her family. She was a strong devoted hard workingwoman and a pillar of the community.

(Lupino) Bacon and spouse Stephen F. Bacon of Coventry RI and Joseph M. Lupino and spouse Kim Lupino of Coventry, RI, great-grandmother of Isabella J. Walker, Jordan J.
