Patricia Kimpton

August 17, 1945 — January 14, 2024

Patricia Ann Kimpton, born August 17, 1945 in Potsdam, NY, passed away the morning of January 14, 2024, at Crouse Community Center in Morrisville, NY surrounded by her family.

Patricia grew up with her parents Gay and Agatha Sweet in Dickinson Center, NY. Patricia spent her early summers working on St. Regis Lake and eventually working for the same family in Rochester and New York City. Patricia worked as an administrative assistant for Paul Smith’s College for 14 years and continued this work at the Adirondack Park Agency until her retirement after 22 years of service. Anyone that worked with Patricia knew that she had a quick wit, big smile, and a propensity to get things done the right way.

Upon retirement Patricia thoroughly enjoyed her time as a volunteer at the Budget Box in Saranac Lake. Patricia also fine-tuned her knack for shopping and became a frequent flyer to Plattsburgh for “shopping events” along with her true love, her husband of 48 years, Thomas Kimpton. She also made frequent trips to Fayetteville, NY to see her two grandsons, who both meant the absolute world to her. Within her family, Patricia was always known for being the doting wife, mother, and grandmother. She always spoke her mind, as she lovingly offered assistance to her family and friends. Patricia will be missed by many.

Patricia is survived by, her sister Mary Fountain and brother and sister-in-law Michael and Veronica Sweet, her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Leesta and Art Smith, her son and daughter-in-law Theron and Heather Sweet, her grandsons Noah and Jonah Sweet, along with her nieces and nephews. Patricia was predeceased by her parents, husband Thomas Kimpton, sister-in-law and brother-in-law Barbara and Everett Sochia and niece, Tessa Sweet.
