Co-founder of Pane's Restaurant

NORTH TONAWANDA —  

Esther Pane, age 88, co-founder of Pane's Restaurant, passed away on December 27, 2012, peacefully at the Cleveland Clinic, of natural causes. Esther was born in Conflenti, Italy.
With her family at the age of seven, she immigrated to the United States in 1932 and settled in Lockport. She met her husband, Peter Pane, Jr., and together they settled in North Tonawanda and raised a family consisting of seven children. She loved gardening, decorating and spending time with her family. Peter passed away in 1988.
With her husband, she enjoyed turning a small tavern into an acclaimed local eatery, employing many people and making many friends. She loved cooking for people; it was her pride and joy. After retiring from day to day operations in the 1990's, she still took an active role, acting as a mentor to her son. She offered guidance and support to the family up until the time of her death.
