Lannette “Nana” (Seaver) Pancoast, 56, of Binghamton was taken from this world unexpectedly due to a brief illness on Monday, May 11, 2015. She was predeceased by her parents Walter and Marjorie Seaver. She was a devoted mother to her children, a daughter Jamie (John) Helstein, Windsor; two sons Steve “Squeaker” (Heather) Pancoast, Binghamton and Lee (Katie) Pancoast, Vestal; a loving “Nana” to her grandchildren Olivia; Autumn; Johnny; Landon and Rosalyn. She was also survived by two sisters Marion (Kimber) Anderson, Endicott and Rita Heeter, Jacksonville, FL; a brother Robert (Donna) Seaver, Endicott and also several nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends, Kristin and Rob, Kristina, and countless others. Lannette devoted 25 years of her life to the day habilitation program at ACHIEVE touching the lives of many, where she will be deeply missed by the family she developed there over the years. Lannette’s greatest joy in life was her family. She was incredibly proud of her children, and would constantly brag about their accomplishments. When she became a Nana, life couldn’t get any better. She absolutely adored her grandchildren and was their #1 fan. She enjoyed spending time at the beach, and taking in the sun any chance she got. She also enjoyed her new found love of sailing with her special friend, Joe. Most importantly, Mom will be forever remembered for that smile of hers. Her smile had a way of reminding you that life is not that bad; that it will get better, and that life is too precious to be so serious. We all love and will miss you more than words can express. “No regrets”.
Funeral Services will be held Sunday 1 pm from the Allen Memorial Home, 511-513 East Main Street, Endicott, with the Reverend David Seaver, cousin of Lannette officiating. Burial will be in Riverhurst Cemetery, Endicott at the convenience of the family. The family will receive friends at the Allen Memorial Home Sunday from 10 am until service time at 1 pm. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy in her memory may be made to ACHIEVE, 125 Cutler Pond Road, Binghamton, NY 13905.

I can remember a lot about Lannette. I started to work back in 2007 and the second face I meet was Lannette and greeted me with open arms and welcome me ARC at the time. Than same year we had a fundraiser and it was bowling. We were asked to bowl against the Admin team. There was 5 of us that was trainers and Hap Spec. against Admin. We were having a lot of fun. Yes that year we won. Lannette, I can hear you saying to me Jean , when I got a spare or a stick. But this year that I have been there is 8 yrs. Lannette would all was talk to staff in the hallway. She was all was there for us. Lannette , I just want to say that I will be missing you very much. Like today at work I walked past your office and a tear came to my face. I just was thinking you will not calling me name anymore. But you are in my heart for ever.

I knew Lannette from working at Day Hab at Achieve. Always was there to talk to when needing advice. Always had a smile on her face and a positive word to say even in the heated moments that arouse there. Very caring and dedicated lady to ALL. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends .

My memories of my friend are all beautiful and fun. She was a special woman and her daughter was right on when she spoke of her smile. She had a great sense of humor and a wonderful heart and I will always remember her with fondness. She is missed already and all my prayers and condolences to her kids. She did a wonderful job in raising them to be wonderful people.

Lanette had a spirit about her that we all wish we had. The times that we were with family she just had a bliss about her with her children and grandchildren... I am sure there are so many broken hearts today, but thank God we knew and loved her.....
