Obituary

Patrick Augustine Mentele, 2 months 11 days, of Mitchell, died November 7, 2017 at Avera McKennen Hospital in Sioux Falls.

Funeral mass will be 10:30 AM Saturday, November 11, 2017 at Holy Family Catholic Church with burial in Calvary Cemetery. Visitation will be 5-7:00 PM Friday at Holy Family Catholic Church with a 6:30 PM Rosary followed by a scripture service.

Patrick Augustine Mentele was born on August 28th, 2017 to Steven and Erica of Mitchell at Avera McKennan in Sioux Falls. He arrived three weeks early and weighed 5lbs 3oz. 

Due to his premature birth and a heart defect caused by Down Syndrome, Patrick was admitted into the NICU where he spent the remainder of his life. Patrick's team of doctors planned for him to have corrective heart surgery after his weight increased to 11 pounds. His family anxiously awaited that day.

While he was busy growing, Patrick enjoyed visits from Mom and Dad, his 7 siblings, Grandma Pam and Grandpa Les, and many others. While family and friends were away, Patrick could be found napping or snuggling with his nurses.

Fr. Ken Lulf baptized Patrick on September 7. He died on November 7 weighing 9lbs 8oz.

Patrick is survived by his parents, siblings (Christopher, Joshua, Elizabeth, Catherine, Samuel, Isabella, and Philip), grandparents (Jerald and Holly Mentele of Epiphany, Les and Pam Boer of Sioux Falls), Great Grandmother (Verna Boer of Rock Valley, Ia.), and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

I am so sorry to hear about Patrick. It sounded like he put up a brave fight during his short time with you. You are were such a loving family to him in his short life. My prayers are with you as you go through life trying to deal with this raw pain and find a new normal without his physical presence.
