Lillian M. Lupas, 86 of Wilkes-Barre, and formerly of Laflin and Plains Township, passed away Tuesday evening, November 9, 2021 at Geisinger Wyoming Valley, Plains, PA.

Born in Olyphant, PA, she was the daughter of the late John and Mary (Kanjorski) Novitsky.

For most of her life, Lillian was a stay at home mom and caregiver for her special needs daughter, Joanne. Her love for and devotion to Joanne was extraordinary and has left a lasting impression upon her family and those who knew her as a shining example of the remarkable bond between a mother and child. Her children, grandchildren, and newly born great-grandchild were the joys of her life.
