Patricia (Pat) Jo Vassaur peacefully passed away at the age of 83 on July 24, 2023 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Pat was born on April 11, 1940 to Marvin and Frances Manring in Gallatin, Missouri.
She is survived by her husband Bing Vassaur of Tulsa; son and daughter-in-law Robert Mitchell and Laura Brewer; grandchildren Amelia, Elliott, and Charlotte, all of Phoenix; son John Vassaur; grandchildren Rebekah, Nathan, and Rachel, all of Tulsa; and nephew Jeff Manring of Phoenix.
Pat graduated from Tulsa Will Rodgers High School in 1958. She was a cellist in the school orchestra. As a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, Pat graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in Music Education. She played cello in the OSU orchestra and sang in the University Choir.
Pat began her teaching career in an elementary school music classroom. A few years later, she joined the faculty at Keystone Middle School teaching Social Studies. Students gravitated towards her enthusiastic and positive attitude. Pat's passion for engaged teaching made a difference in the lives of her students throughout 25 years of educational service to the Keystone community. She produced and organized student musicals and concerts for Keystone that were always received with gratitude and heart- filled smiles.
In retirement, Pat and her husband Bing loved to travel and experience new places around the United States. They always returned home with fun stories and pictures to back up their hilarious adventures. She was an active walker that could be seen daily around Lafortune Park wearing out the grass along the fence line.
On a personal note, Mom was a colorful, flamboyant, loving person with sparkling eyes and a creative spirit.
