1941 - 2013

Patricia Frances Goodman, 72, a longtime resident of the Santa Clarita Valley, went from this life to life eternal on Tuesday, December 31, 2013 in Apple Valley, CA. She was born in Pomona, CA, on April 2, 1941 to Virginia LeGaye and Lewis Goodman.

Patricia graduated from El Monte High School in 1958 and served in the U.S. Air Force from 1960-1961. She worked hard her whole life; first as a waitress, then as a bookkeeper. Pat passionately cared about her friends and her pets. Quite a character, she was known for her big heart and sometimes ornery nature.

Patricia's greatest joy was her family. She is survived by her children: Nancy Sweet-Fitzgibbon (Michael), Michael Kelly (Allyson), David Sweet (Julie), and Stephen Sweet; her grandchildren: Troy French (Denise), Tim French (Ashlynn), Steffon Chase, Ashley and John Kelly, Jacob and Kylie Fitzgibbon, Riley and Dawson Sweet; her great-grandsons: Logan, Landon, and Timmy; her brother, James Fowkes (Martha) and loved nephews, nieces, great-nephews, and great-nieces. She was preceded in death by her sister, Marilyn.

A celebration of Patricia's life will be on Saturday, January 18, 2014, at 4:00 p.m. at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 28159 Ave Stanford, Valencia, CA 91355. Suggested memorial gifts to honor Pat's life may be sent to: A Better Way-Domestic Violence Shelter (
