Patricia Morehouse

Patricia had a servant’s heart and helped her family and friends whenever and however she could.

Patricia Ann Morehouse, age 83, of Brier, WA, loving wife and mother of four, peacefully passed away on June 28th, 2019.

Patricia was born on March 26, 1936, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. When young she moved to and grew up on Vashon Island in Washington State, later graduating from Vashon High School in 1954. In the mid-1950’s Patricia was a dental x-ray technician. Patricia married Kenyon E. Morehouse on November 11, 1955, in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. She shared a life and marriage with Ken for 63 years. She worked with her husband in their bakery, The Bread of Life Bakery, starting in 1958 for several years and then went on to raise four children alongside her husband Ken.

Patricia loved the home Ken and she created together and it was known for its beautiful garden, welcoming warmth, home-canned goods, and the accordion, piano and organ music she loved so well. She loved the Lord first, followed by her family and was known to pray for them individually, daily. She will be remembered for hosting and cooking beautifully prepared family meals for events, her love of playing board games with friends and family, and her love of roses.

Patricia had a servant’s heart and helped her family and friends whenever and however she could. Patricia is survived by her husband, Kenyon; son Tony and wife Linda Morehouse of Snohomish, daughters Robin and husband Jerry Waldron of Lynnwood, Tricia and husband Loren Ray of Kenmore, and Amy Morehouse of Federal Way; 11 grandchildren: Karlee Blake, Bryan Morehouse, Blake Morehouse, Clayton Morehouse, Jacob Morehouse, Emilee Morehouse, Collin Thomas, Katie Morehouse, Tiffany Ray, Jason Ray, Andrea Geyer; 15 great-grandchildren: Jordyn, Zyan, Cruz, Rocky, Kaylee, Madison, Logan, Bentley, Van, Opal, Dorothy, Olive, Klara, Edward, and Alfredo and one great-great-grandchild Ava. She is also survived by sisters Donna Morse of Edmonds, Sharen McLean of Tacoma, Marilyn Murphy of Tacoma and 22 nieces and nephews.

Patricia was preceded in death by her father Elmer Svane, mother Mabel (Langland) Svane, brother Rocky Svane and sister Frances Reagor.
