Obituary for Patti A. Lewis

Patti Lewis (Patricia Ann Lewis) 56, of Milwaukee, WI passed away on September 17, 2023, she was born on May 23, 1967. Patti is survived by her Fiancé, Scott Benton, Mother, Barbara Borchardt, StepDad, John Borchardt, Sister, Kris Toeller (Lewis), Brother-in-law Matthew Toeller, and her Niece, Lydia Toeller.

Patti was a vibrant, fun and loving person who always put the needs of others before hers. She loved to laugh, spend time with family and friends and enjoyed listening to live, local music. Any of Patti’s friends who were not musicians, they were most likely brought together through their mutual enjoyment of music. Patti enjoyed doing sound for many local shows throughout her life. It was music that brought her to meet the love of her life, Scott Benton. Patti adored “Her Scott” and loved him with all her heart and the feeling and sentiment was mutual for Scott. We couldn’t have asked for a better match for her. Scott let Patti be the free spirit that she was, loved her unconditionally and took the most amazing care of her. We will be forever grateful that Patti had him in her life.

Patti was very loyal to friends and family and had a very special place in her heart for her niece, Lydia. The two of them shared many special moments playing together and after Lydia moved to Arizona, they would mail a journal back and forth in which they created special stories for one another.

Patti was also deeply loved by her Mom, Barb, Stepdad, John and her sister, Kris. They recognized the beautiful soul that she was and only wished for her to enjoy life, to be loved and to have peace. She was taken way too soon from this earth but we know she is soaring through the sky and watching over us with her big heart and beautiful smile.

A private ceremony will be held at Wisconsin Memorial Park in Brookfield, WI
