Patricia Claire (McKasson) Mashburn passed away peacefully on 5/6/2013 surrounded by her family and loved ones following a year-long battle with pancreatic cancer. Pat was born in Wallace, Idaho on March 10, 1938 and later moved to Tacoma and then Eatonville, where her parents were caretakers for the Hellyer’s Horseshoe Lake Ranch. She graduated from Eatonville High School in 1957. Pat’s life was one of compassion, unconditional love and service to her family and others. She always put the interests and comfort of others before her own. Her caring nature led to her choice of careers as a child daycare provider, handicap shuttle operator, and finally as the owner of the Mashburn House, her own adult family care home. She dedicated nearly all of her time to providing compassionate care to others.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Ila (Durkee) McKasson of Eatonville, and is survived by her brothers Earl (Pat) McKasson and Charles (Judy) McKasson of Eatonville; son Ted (Janice) Kiestler of Spanaway; daughter Ila (Dale) Reynolds of Reno; son William (Lisa) Kiestler of Idaho Falls; son Donny (Sharon) Kiestler of Graham; 13 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
