Patricia Dazi


Patricia Marion Dazi departed this life peacefully on January 25, 2022. She was 80 years old.

Patsy was born in Mt. Kisco, NY to William and Virginia (Adams) Von Essen on August 4, 1941. She was raised and spent most of her life in Carmel, NY. She told heartfelt stories of a wonderful childhood spent with brothers Billy and Johnny, and her large and extremely close extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Patsy married her high school sweetheart, Bernard William Dazi, on April 16, 1961 at Our Lady of the Lake in Lake Carmel, NY. He predeceased her in 2000. Together Pat and Bernie enjoyed a lifetime of love as they watched their family grow. They were blessed with three children, Deirdre Holic (Steven) of Stormville, Darla Principe (Robert) of Stormville, and Lance Dazi of Stormville, who sadly passed away in November.

Affectionately known as “Grammy”, Pat’s greatest joy in life was spending time with her grandchildren, Dustin Principe (Rianna), Alyssa Waldman (Jake), Danielle Holic and Chloe Holic. She “showed up” every day to offer encouragement, wisdom and hugs and kisses. Her unconditional devotion and unselfish love will never be forgotten. In 2019 Grammy joyfully became great-grandma to Brayden Principe.
