CUMMING, Ga. — Patricia Eiko Choquette cared so much for the community. Through Forsyth County Community Connection, she managed and organized those looking for volunteering opportunities with the right nonprofit.

Choquette, 52, had been fighting kidney cancer. On Monday, July 14, she died at her home in Cumming.

In June, she had received her Bachelor's degree in human services from the University of North Georgia.

In addition to being involved in helping promote nonprofits in Forsyth County, Choquette was a leader at UNG's Gainesville Campus, where she started the national honors society chapter and a human services association for students. She also helped to start a community garden.

"It was an easy way to get people healthy food," her daughter Shawn said.

Shawn said her mother dropped out of school at 14 to help the family, and when she decided to go back to college, she earned her GED in just two weeks.

"She was the smartest person I've ever met," Shawn said. "She could figure out any puzzle."

Choquette, who was born in San Francisco, had also worked as general manager at Ippolito's and Decker's restaurants.

On Oct. 5, 1985, she married Timothy Choquette. The couple had three children, daughters Shawn Eiko Choquette, of Cumming; Julia Anne-Michelle Choquette, of Sandy Springs and son T.J. Choquette, of Cumming.

"She would do anything for us and always put us first, no matter what," Shawn said. "She was always there with encouraging words and never let us stop doing what we wanted to do."

In addition, survivors include her mother, Mitzi Monaco of Sacramento, Calif; sister, Catherine Hernandez of Calif and brother, Joseph Pelletier of Calif.

Funeral services will be Monday, July 21 at 1 p.m. at Good Shepherd Catholic Church with Father Frank Richardson officiating.

Interment will follow at 3 p.m. at Sawnee View Memorial Gardens.

The family will receive friends at Ingram Funeral Home, 210 Ingram Avenue in Cumming, on Sunday, July 20 from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m.
