Esther Maria Panozzo-Roy


Esther M. Panozzo-Roy, age 90, of Little Chute, passed away peacefully with her daughters at her side on July 24, 2018.   She desired that the family write only three sentences to summarize her life:


Esther was an incredible woman and was loved by all who knew her.

She lived her life with grace, and she died with dignity.

Her favorite saying was “Miracles happen to those who believe, and I believe.”



Esther is survived by her daughters: Marisa (Paul) Zschaechner, Combined Locks and Maria-Grazia (Dr. Peter) Selzer, Taos, New Mexico; grandson, Adam Zschaechner, Menasha; step grandchildren: Zoe Selzer McKinley, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Jordan Selzer, Phoenix, Arizona.

Visitation will be at the church on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until the time of the service, with lunch to follow. Entombment will be in Highland Memorial Park.

The Panozzo-Roy family would like to extend a special thank you to ThedaCare Regional Medical Center nurses Corey and Ja and respiratory therapist Marek (Mark), as well as the staff at Heartland Hospice, especially Shelly and Shelby for their compassionate care. Also, thanks to Esther’s neighbor Debbie for being like a “3rd daughter” to her.
