STANDISH — Patricia Ann (Flynn) Swett, 74, died peacefully Saturday evening, Aug. 22, 2015 just before sunset at her home on Sebago Lake in Standish following a decades long battle with multiple sclerosis.

She was born in Auburn, on May 20, 1941, the daughter of the late Raymond and Doris (Davis) Flynn. She was educated in Lewiston and graduated as an R.N. from Central Maine General, now Central Maine Medical Center.

As a nurse, she was employed by Central Maine General, Mercy Hospital and Maine Medical Center. After retiring from nursing, she volunteered for the American Red Cross and for substance abuse programs in local schools.

She enjoyed gardening and sharing memories of her grandparent's farm in Auburn. She advocated for those that couldn’t speak for themselves and cared for those who couldn't care for themselves.

She married the love of her life, Alfred E. Swett and lovingly embraced his daughter Elizabeth (Swett) Waldman, his son Alfred W. Swett and their families.

She was predeceased by her husband and her brother, Michael.

She is survived by her brothers David A. Flynn of Lyman and Timothy J. Flynn of Lewiston; her children, Cynthia L. Swett, Scott D. Swett and Daniel J. Swett of Raymond; as well as her eight grandchildren.
