MOUNT UPTON – During the late hours of March 5, 2020, the illness and addiction that had stolen Natasha Paige’s sparkle took her life.

Her close friends and family will always remember her for her big smile and the funny, smart, loving way that she was.

Natasha was born Feb. 23, 1994, in Oneonta. She attended Gilbertsville-Mount Upton and Unatego schools.

Natasha loved big gatherings, spending time with her daughter, wrapping special Christmas gifts to make the holiday perfect for her family. Her heart was so touched by any animal she came across; she always wanted to keep them all. Avah is the gift that we will hold tight and love with all our hearts.
