Patricia Ann West, 67, passed away August 16, 2018. The oldest child of Walter A. Walker and Marieta (Dumont) Walker, she grew up in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Patty spent the majority of her life here on the Peninsula. Patty was a lady with a big personality, a great smile, and a talented interior decorator who made their home a showcase. Patty graduated from Christopher Newport University in 2008, fulfilling a life-long dream, as she always valued education. Patty worked as a legal assistant at the law firm of David, Kamp & Frank, L.L.C. for over thirty years, and is famous for being the only reason TaB soda is still on sale. Her sense of humor was renowned, as was her passion as a wife, mother, and friend. Patty is survived by her loving husband, Lewis Sweeley, of Williamsburg, son, Alex (wife Julie) of Newport News, as well as her brothers Alvin, Thomas, Jeffrey, and David, and sisters Lori and Teresa.
