Mark Rake-Marona Memorial at MASON UNITED METHODIST
August 29, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Mark Joseph Rake-Marona, son of Kathleen Prince and Vincent James Rake, died on Monday, July 22 at Tacoma General Hospital surrounded by his family. Mark served as Executive Director for Hospice and Palliative Care, CHI Franciscan Health since 1991. He served on the boards of the WSHPCO, NHPCO, and the Associated Ministries of Pierce County. He was an avid singer and loved his many roles at Tacoma Musical Playhouse. The community at Immanuel Presbyterian Church of Tacoma was a meaningful part of his beautiful life. With all his accomplishments, what Mark is best remembered for is his compassion, his goodness and his hearty laughter. He is already deeply missed. He is survived by his wife, Jenny, sons Spencer and Joel, grandson Jack, two brothers, Greg and Jon Douglas and a large extended family. In lieu of flowers and other gifts, donations may be made to Franciscan Hospice and Palliative Care, American Heart Association, designating LMNA research or the charity of your choice.
Due to the outpouring of love for Mark, the family has decided to move Mark’s memorial to Mason United Methodist Church, 2710 North Madison, Tacoma. The reception will be Immanuel and we are asking any who are able to please park in Saint Patrick’s parking lot. They have graciously given permission to park either at the Parish Center or their main lot.
