Patricia “Paggie” Poehlman, 70, of Clarendon decided on Sept. 20, 2022 to leave the building and head off to the Rainbow Bridge to be reunited with all her domestic felines which had gone before her.

Paggie was born in Baltimore, MD on Dec. 28, 1951 and had lived in this area for over 5 years.  As an employee of the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance, she felt that being born so close to Christmas, that she was gift to the people of New York and would endeavor to ‘help’ them with their tax problems as needed.  In her spare time, she liked to read, do needlepoint and sew as well as watch old movies and be glued to the Turner Classic Movie channel on TV. She was a hard-core woman with a heart of gold. One of her greatest pleasures in life was to spend time with and enjoy her family.

She is survived by her sister: Wendy (Tom Irwin) Poehlman of Waterport, her nieces and nephews: Jen (Sam Karp), Damian, Allie, Samantha and her special nieces and nephews: Lucas and Natalie Powley as well as Penny and Margaret Wojdylo.  She is also survived by her beloved cat and companion Amelia Bedilia.

There will be no calling hours and her service and interment will be held privately at the convenience of the family. Paggie’s arrangements have been entrusted to the Christopher Mitchell Funeral Home of Albion.  To share a special memory of Paggie, please visit:

Paggie will forever be remembered by her family and friends for being friendly, stubborn and a ‘Typical State Worker.’  She’s now going out for coffee with Gram!
