Mrs. Ida Pantalone, 89, formerly of Broad Street, Gloversville, passed into eternal life on October 2, 2019, at Nathan Littauer Extended Care, with loving family by her side.
Ida was born February 17, 1930, the daughter of Roland and Nellie (Davenport) Daum. On March 7, 1947, she married her one true love, Daniel (Danny) J. Pantalone. They had just shy of 65 years together before his passing in 2012.
In addition to her husband, Ida was predeceased by her siblings, Roy Daum, Nina Quinn, Virginia Squires and Evelyn Seelow. Her in-laws on both sides of the family also passed before her, as well as several very special nephews, nieces, and her good friend, Mary Rose Polenski, who she truly mourned. She was the last of the family’s generation and we will miss her quiet wisdom and strength.
Survivors include her son, Danny David (Dave) Pantalone and his wife Doloris of Johnstown; and her daughter, Therese Howard and her husband Marc of Gloversville. Ida is also survived by her grandchildren, Chris Pantalone and his wife Chasity of North Carolina, Eric Pantalone and his wife Sara of Amsterdam, Maria Crisalli and her husband James of Johnstown, and Lindsey Howard of Geneseo, NY. She also leaves behind her very beloved great-grandchildren, Lisette, Gianna, Eliza and Daniel. Ida loved her many nieces and nephews; she considered all of them ‘her kids.’
Ida was an intelligent, kind and thoughtful person whose main purpose was loving and supporting her family. She will always be remembered for opening her home and her heart to those in need. She took great joy in our Sunday and holiday dinners. Her passing leaves a void that cannot be filled.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. David Pesses, for his many years of physical support, Pastor Peter Ellis for his many years of spiritual support, and the staff of Nathan Littauer Extended Care for their care and compassion over the past year, especially in these final weeks.
Funeral services will be conducted at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, October 7, 2019, at the A.G. Cole Funeral Home Inc., 215 East Main Street, Johnstown, with Pastor Peter Ellis officiating.
Visitation for family and friends will be on Monday, October 7, 2019, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. prior to the service at the funeral home.
Interment at Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery will immediately follow the funeral service.
Memorial contributions in Ida’s memory may be made to the James A. Brennan Memorial Humane Society, 437 Nine Mile Tree Road, Gloversville, New York 12078.
