Lena was born in Seneca Falls, the daughter of the late Luigi and Adele (Barbi) Giovannetti. She graduated from Mynderse Academy and was a lifelong resident of Seneca Falls. She married John Pagano on July 6, 1946 and shared sixty-six wonderful years together until his passing in 2013. Lena was a member at St. Patrick's Church where she was at one point a member of the Guild and Altar Society. For years Lena had
worked as a looper at Seneca Knitting Mill in Seneca Falls. Her Christmas cookies still make our mouths water. Her love of growing flowers and vegetables lives on through her family and friends forever.
She is survived by her Greatest Nieces who loved her like a Mother, Aunt and Grandmother; Andrea (Peter) DeVivi, and their daughter Ruby, Nicole (Mark Thomas) Widell, Pam (Bruce) Bator, and their son Mason; as well as many loving nieces, newphews, and friends.
In addition to parents and husband John, she is predeceased by her sisters, Clara Giovannetti and Bruna Adami; brothers, Leno and Geno Giovannetti, niece Lois Widell and nephew David Adami.
