Patricia A. Paglia Berkley

Pleasantdale, New York


Patricia A. Paglia Berkley, 69 passed away on Monday, February 20, 2023 at Samaritan Hospital surrounded by her loving family.


Patricia was born in Troy, she was the daughter to the late Doris H. DeFreest Paglia  and Christy C. Paglia, and the loving wife to Robert M. “Mack” Berkley.

Patricia worked for Samaritan Hospital as a Registered Dietician for many years, Grand Union Supermarket, McDonalds, and ended her work career as a CNA home health care aide in their Hospice division.


She enjoyed going to family reunions, making Facebook connections, parties, vacations, the Racino in Saratoga,  playing bingo and most of all she loved her entire enormous family.  One could always find her shopping online, watching her crime shows or soap operas, or calling up loved ones to let them know they were appreciated.
