Burrows, Patricia Ann Thom Heitmann

Patricia Ann Thom Heitmann Burrows passed away peacefully at the age of 73 in Dallas, Texas due to complications from Parkinson’s Disease.

She was born on August 23, 1945 in Lewistown, Montana to John and Dottie Thom.

A caring and loving mother to her children, she spent much of her adult life raising her family and working as a paralegal in Dallas.

Patti, as she was known, will be remembered for her love of dogs and cats, always lending a helping hand to abandoned or lost pets, gardening (even in the Texas heat) and loving her family.

She was preceded in death by her first husband Charles Heitmann and her second husband Earl Frank Burrows.

She is survived by her son Craig (Pam) Heitmann in Richardson, TX and and daughter Michelle Lee Heitmann (Rick) Bollinger in Frisco, TX.

She will be missed by her grandchildren Alec, Nathan, and Leah.

In lieu of a traditional funeral, her children will scatter her ashes at some of her favorite camping spots. Instead of flowers, please consider making a donation to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

Patti was one my dearest friends during high school. We lost touch during our college years and, amazingly, reconnected during our 40th-year high school reunion! Since then we have kept in touch. Her illness diminished our contacts, and I am so sorry to hear of her passing as well as of her husband, Frank. Patti was a lovely lady and dear friend who I will miss very much. God bless her soul. Love, Carole

I am so sorry to hear of Patti’s passing. We were classmates at Billings West High School and shared a room at our 40th class reunion. Her upbeat spirit will live on. She was a great lady.

I am so saddened to hear of Patti's passing. She was a wonderful lady that I had the honor of taking care of at Highgate Senior Living in Great Falls, Montana. She will be truly missed by all of us who came to know and take care of her. RIP Patti....I love you!
