Rose S. Motola Obituary
Rose S. Motola

Rose Motola was a Seattle native, whose parents, Nessim and Sultana Amira, immigrated from Turkey in the 1920s. After graduating from Garfield High School in 1945, Rose worked at a Seattle credit reporting agency. She enjoyed ballroom dancing to the sound of swing music. In 1949 she met her sweetheart on a blind date and within 3 months married Isaac Motola, a USAF vet. For nearly 64 years, she maintained a happy home with her family, congregation and the Jewish community as the center of her life. She was honored for many years of service to the Sephardic Bikur Holim Congregation as Woman of the Year. She will be especially missed by her Mah Jongg circles, the Red Hat Society and the Southeast Seattle Senior Center. Rose is survived by her husband, Isaac; her daughter, Marlene and son-in-law John C. Barnes; her sons, Jack and Sam; and her grandchildren, Michael and Rebecca Motola-Barnes. Family suggests remembrances to Sephardic Bikur Holim or the Kline Galland Home, where she received excellent care from hospice, resident, home health, and the rehab staffs. Services are held 3/5/13 at 1:00 p.m., Evergreen Washelli Funeral Home, 11111 Aurora Ave. N., Seattle. Grave site services follow at Seattle Sephardic Brotherhood Cemetery 1230 N. 167th St. in Shoreline, WA.
