Well-known local businesswoman and philanthropist Jane Golub has passed away at the age of 80.
Golub was an elementary school teacher who joined her husband Neil at Price Chopper Supermarkets and the Golub Corporation, serving in various capacities, including director of in-store marketing programs.
She was best known for her volunteer educational and philanthropic efforts, which helped several of the region's health care institutions, including tens of millions for Ellis Hospital.
Both donated much of their own wealth to numerous charities over the years.
She also served as educational coordinator for "A World of Difference," a multi-cultural program eventually adopted by schools and businesses statewide.
Memorial plans are not immediately available.
