Patricia (Pat) Ann (Mola) TOOKE (65) Beloved mother and grandmother left this earth on September 24, 2011.
She was born in Renton, WA on September 13, 1946. Â Grew up in Normandy Park and graduated from Highline High School in 1965.
She is survived by her 2 children: Annastacia Tooke of Charlotte NC and Patrick (Darcey) of Burien, WA and 2 granddaughters.
Pat recently retired from the Highline School District as a paraeducator. Â She loved her work in education and felt it was extremely important that everyone receive a quality experience.
Her latest passion was the Zoo. She loved being a docent at the Woodland Park Zoo. Â The family wishes that memorial gifts be made to Woodland Park Zoo (https://www.zoo.org/donate), 601 N. 59th St., Seattle, WA 98103 in memory of Patricia Tooke.
“My mother recently passed away,” said her daughter Staci Tooke. “She was a lifetime resident of the Burien area – I think the only time she didn’t live in Burien was when my dad was stationed in Germany, the picture is of Me as an infant and my parents.”
