Our beloved Suzanne Rauch has left us. Born August 2, 1929. Died February 15, 2023. She was born in Marion, IN to Ray A. and Roxy Helen Benjamin during an unusual August cold snap. There was no heat, because a new furnace was in the process of being installed! She was a baby sister to John (“Ben”), Ray, Jr. and David.
Suzy attended Ball State University as a Piano Performance and Education major. She was married to her high school sweetheart the late
Richard A. “Dick” Rauch in 1950. They were devoted to each other and their family, son Richard A Rauch, Jr. (Deborah), daughter Rebecca Sue and grandchildren Richard A. Rauch, III and Samuel Gregory Rauch. Also many cherished nieces and nephews.
Suzy was vivacious, elegant and beautiful. She designed and kept a beautiful home and always served wonderful meals. She made sure the cookie jar was always full! She loved to entertain and was right beside Dick in his roles at the Chicago Real Estate Board and Chicago Union League Club, among many others. She served as president of the Winnetka Woman’s Club and was active in the New Trier Republican Organization, the P.E.O. Sisterhood, Chapter GC, Il, her church circle, and PTA. She was a life long lover of nature and animals. She was a devoted friend to many.
Services are private per Suzanne’s wishes.
She will remain in our hearts forevermore.
