Patricia Seidel Isett


Patricia Seidel Isett, of Utica, NY, passed away on Aug. 30, 2022, at the age of 77. Daughter of the late Joseph and Frances Szlek, “Mimi” is survived by her children, Rebecca Seidel Herrmann, and Stephen Seidel (Robin); grandchildren, Maxwell, Mitchell, Gabrielle, Savannah, Sawyer; and her dog, Roxzy.

Patsy graduated valedictorian from NY Mills, before attending Russell Sage and Utica College, and acquiring MA, MEd. and LMHC degrees. She was an entrepreneur, author of “Solo and Savvy,” and world traveler of 60+ countries and 5 continents. Twice married, first to the late Stephen V. Seidel of Utica, and then to the late Tom Isett, of Philly. She loved her Polish devotion, travel groups, and parties at her White Lake cottage. Whether her affectionate laugh, jingling bracelets, or wild stories, she will be with us forever.

Memorial Mass will be on Friday, Oct. 14, at 9 a.m., at Sacred Heart of Jesus, Polish Catholic Church at 206 Main St. in NY Mills. Donations may be made to Kids Oneida on her behalf.
