Rita Watchie Past Baker

Rita Watchie Past BAKER

Our dear mom, Rita went home to be with our Lord and wonderful dad, Bud on March 19, 2013.

She is survived by her children, MaryJane, Teri, Nancy, Jim (Vicki), John (Desiree) and Kathleen (Rod). She is also survived by her step-brothers, Father Michael J. and Tim Ryan, 13 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews who she loved so much.

Rita Past Baker was born in Seattle to Howard and Helen Fitterer Watchie on June 27, 1931. She attended St. Patrick Grade School, Holy Names Academy and the University of Washington. She married Frank M. Past (Bud) in July 1954 and began what she said on many occasions “was the happiest time in my life”. Sadly, Bud passed away in 1969 and we still miss him deeply.

She was blessed again when she met and married wonderful Paul C. Baker and his children Paul (Buzz), Kathy, Tom, Sara and Theresa. He preceded her in death in 1979. Also preceding her in death were her mother, Helen; father, Howard; second mother Katherine Ryan Watchie; brothers, Dick (Sheila and Mary), John (Jeanne and Sally); sisters, Marion, and Emma (Jerry) and Mary Pat (Beryl).

Funeral Mass will be celebrated Monday, March 25th, at 11:00 AM at Sacred Heart Church in Bellevue, Washington with a reception following. Donations may be made to your favorite charity or Rita’s favorite charity, Katherine’s House, c/o 100 23rd Ave. S, Seattle, WA 98144-2302.
