Jessie Pignataro was a family woman who embraced domestic life as a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother to the fullest. She married her late husband Ralph in 1946. Together they had three lovely daughters. Jessie was an excellent homemaker and a fantastic cook. She always kept a spotless home, and everything looked new.
Graduating from Hutchinson Central Technical High School was a proud moment for Jessie, as not many women graduated from high school back then. She graduated in June of 1944 with a focus on business subjects. After high school, she would go on to attend secretarial school. Jessie was like a walking dictionary and could spell any word. When her children got older, she worked as a clerk for the Child Welfare Division of Erie County.
Jessie will be remembered for her unwavering dedication to family and missed by all who knew her.
