NEW BERLIN – Patricia A. Tasior, 71, of New Berlin, who served in the Marines and Air National Guard and, later, as Pittsfield town clerk, passed away peacefully on Friday, Jan. 17, 2020, at her home.

Pat was born on on Aug. 24, 1948 in Utica, the daughter of the late Joseph and Phyllis Kostyczak Tasior.  Pat grew up in Edmeston, where her family lived on the second floor of the Edmeston Hotel, which her father sold in 1987.  The site is now occupied by NBT Bank and the post office.
