Marjorie Maxine Rauch

March 16, 1932 ‒ July 14, 2016

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: Marjorie Maxine Rauch passed away Thursday, July 14, 2016 in Wedgewood Estates in Mansfield, surrounded by her family. She was 84.

Marjorie was born March 16, 1932 to parents Eli & Vestie (Howard) McKenzie in Morehead, Kentucky. She had worked as a nurse’s aide at many health care facilities in the Mansfield area until her retirement.

On August 28, 1964 she married Gabriel Rauch and they enjoyed nearly 50 wonderful years of marriage until he passed away on March 31, 2014. They are now together again.

Marjorie will be remembered for her feisty personality. She was famous among her friends and family for her undeniable fashion sense and she always looked the part with the perfect outfit—complete with the right shoes and purse! Her fashion sense spilled over into her home décor. She could visualize the perfect redecorating pieces and she always kept a beautiful home for her family.

She was a wonderful cook and baker even though she rarely measured the ingredients and never used a recipe. Just one look in the cupboard and she knew what to make. Above all, Marjorie deeply cared for and cherished spending time with her children and grandchildren.

She is survived by four children: Patricia (Ronald) Hunt of Mansfield, Michael Perkins of Omaha, NE, Mark Haston & fiancée Rachelle of Omaha, NE, and Paula Thompson of Mansfield; grandchildren Kevin (Vickie) Perkins, Sean Haston, Kyle Haston, Jennifer Thompson, and Michelle Thompson; great-grandchildren Kyle Perkins and Kayla Perkins; three great-great-grandchildren (with one on the way); special friends of the family Mark, Braison, and Nicholas Hawkins; along with numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

In addition to her loving husband, she was preceded in death by her parents and siblings: Myrtle Rose, Clayton McKenzie, Ann Davis, Irene Wukela, Virginia Hamm, Rosela McKenzie and Robert McKenzie.

The Rauch family sincerely appreciates and acknowledges the kind and compassionate care that was extended to Marjorie by the staff of both Wedgewood Estates and OhioHealth Hospice

The family will receive friends 4-6 p.m. Monday, July 18, 2016 at the Marion Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where a funeral service honoring her life will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday. Celebrant Jerry Wilson will officiate and burial will follow in Mansfield Cemetery.
