Patricia Gale Burns-Sinatra, beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, passed away on January 22nd, 2024, at the Mayo Clinic in La Crosse, Wisconsin, due to complications of a Spleen rupture. She was born on June 12th, 1964, in San Diego, California, to her loving parents Robert and Marylin Burns.

Patti, as she was affectionately known to all who knew her, lived a life filled with love, laughter, and compassion. She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Marylin Burns, as well as her eldest sister Lynn, and two older brothers, Dana and Robert Jr.

She is survived by her two daughters, Samantha and Jessica Sinatra of California, her son Chris T of Wisconsin, and her three grandchildren, Logan, Willow, and Allen. Patti was also cherished by her godfather Donald Stellflue. She was a devoted mother and grandmother, always putting her family first and showering them with unconditional love.

Patti married Mark Sinatra in January 1991, in San Diego, California, and shared five joyous years. She was a dedicated wife and mother, finding immense happiness in her role as a homemaker and caretaker of her family.

In her professional life, Patti excelled in various roles, starting with retail and customer service positions as a jeweler and photo developer at JCPenny. Later in life, she found fulfillment as a quality assurance lead and an e-commerce seller. Her work ethic and attention to detail were admirable qualities that she carried throughout her career.

Beyond her professional life, Patti was deeply involved in her community as an ordained minister at the Freedom of Life Church. Her Spirituality was a guiding light in her life, and she found solace and purpose in helping others in any way she was able.

Patti’s interests were as varied as they were vibrant. She found joy in spending time at the farm and in nature, whether riding bikes, walking, playing tennis, or tending to her garden. Her love for the outdoors was infectious, and she shared that passion with all those around her.

Those who knew Patti would describe her as kind, honest, respectful, trustworthy, caring, compassionate, and sensitive. Her warm personality and genuine nature endeared her to everyone she met.

A private funeral service will be held in her honor at the First Free Church on Mason Street in Onalaska, WI, on March 5th, 2024, at 11:00 AM. Instead of flowers, donations to assist with final expenses can be made by contacting Chris at 608-864-3078 or via email at

A special message of gratitude goes out to Samantha Sinatra for her generous contribution towards the cremation expenses, the First Free Church for hosting the funeral service, and Coulee Region Cremation for their assistance during this difficult time.

Patti will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her legacy of love and compassion will live on in the hearts of those she touched. May she rest in peace.
