At an inquest into her death held at Norfolk Coroner's court on Friday, the court heard how Mrs Patel had struggled with her drinking for a number of years and that her reliance on alcohol had increased in recent years.
The court heard from Mrs Patel's mother and a number of organisations which Mrs Patel sought help and support from in an attempt to reduce her drinking and improve her emotional wellbeing.
Giving a conclusion of an alcohol-related death, Yvonne Blake, area coroner for Norfolk said: "Emotionally [Mrs Patel] was very unhappy and was trying her best to get herself well but this certainly over took her in terms of her death."
