Patricia Anne Sweat, 56, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 23, 2021, in her home in West Haven, Connecticut. She was born August 26, 1964 in Dillon, SC to Marvin and Fannie Sweat.
Patricia was a loving and caring mother, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend. She had the biggest heart with a warming smile to match. Whether you were a friend or family, her door was always open to you. Patricia took pride and enjoyed caring for other people. She was a CNA at Mariner healthcare for many years where she cared for and assisted the elderly. Patricia’s love for god and the church were of the upmost importance. She was a long time member of West Haven Church of God (Promiseland Church of God) where she created the mime ministries and was a former president of the women's ministries. Patricia loved spending time in the kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family and friends. Her love was expressed through every meal she cooked and everyone truly looked forward to her cooking. Her family was one of the most important aspects of her life (with her birthday and elephants a close second) She strived to love and be loved!
