Obituary of Patricia Marzeski

Patricia Ann Marzeski (Pease), 67, died peacefully in her daughter's home surrounded by family on November 18, 2022. Patty was born in Washington Courthouse, OH, and grew up in Xenia, OH. She graduated from Carroll High School in 1973 and attended University before working as Civilian Head of Human Resources at the Air Force Aero Propulsion Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base where she met Joel, her beloved husband of 47 years. Patty took time off to enjoy raising her children before joining Cazenovia Central Schools as a Teaching Assistant in 1988. She soon took over as the secretary for Burton Street School, and further served the district an additional 13 years as District Clerk and Secretary to the Superintendent. She proudly served in each position with a caring dedication that rippled throughout the district long after her retirement in 2018. Patty found absolute joy in the simple things in life and never missed an opportunity to spread that joy to others. She adored her grandson, devoured books, loved music, singing, roller coasters, good food and a good glass of wine. She loved traveling with family and had hoped to do more. A fiercely loyal sister and friend, she always found ways to let her family and friends know just how loved and important they were to her. She had a rare gift for making others feel valued. Patty met life's challenges directly, with a quiet strength and grace. Her laughter and kind, positive attitude were contagious. Her effort to remain positive and prioritize her family's wellbeing and happiness were evident right up until her last days. She never ceased to have fun or bring fun to each day, no matter the situation, and her lessons will stay with us — “Happiness is a choice." Patty is survived by her loving, devoted husband Joel; her daughter, Triest Reynard (husband Jonathan, son Bridger) of Middleboro, MA; her son, Tristan Marzeski of New York City; parents, James and Ruth Pease of Xenia, OH; her sister Sharon Rust (husband Ronald) of Centerville, OH; her brother Michael Pease (wife Rae) of Jamestown, OH, and many adoring nieces and nephews. A memorial will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, June 24, 2023 at Michael E. Brown Funeral Services, 2333 Fenner Road in Cazenovia, New York. In lieu of flowers the family ask that donations be made to Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary, 37 Eddy St., Norton, MA 02766. Condolences for the Marzeski family may be left at
