RAUSCH
Mavis Reone Rausch, 87, of Rochester, passed away Friday, August 2, 2019 at Edenbrook of Rochester.
Mavis was born March 24, 1932 in Cherry Grove Township, Goodhue County, MN to John and Alice (Rice) Nicol. After graduating high school, Mavis went on to the Kahler School of Nursing. After nursing school, she began working at the Colonial Building and the Methodist Hospital. She worked as a registered nurse and retired after 40 years of service. Mavis married Robert Rausch on May 30, 1954 at the First Baptist Church in Rochester. Mavis and Bob loved camping or traveling in their RV. Mavis enjoyed doing crafts, crocheting and had amazing sewing skills. She loved going for early morning walks, helping keep her neighborhood clean and kept a watchful eye in her neighborhood. Mavis took in the beauty of the wildlife around her, feeding and watching the birds. She always had a tight knit bond with her sisters, and loved her family. She was meticulous, strong willed and always liked to look her best.

I worked with Mavis in "old" Methodist on second floor. She was an outstanding teacher for me as a new grad. Her patience and skill was admirable. She will be missed. Ginny Gosselin

I worked with Mavis many years ago when I was a new grad. She was so friendly and helpful, always a smile on her face. I have fond memories of Mavis, she brightened the world around her.

I worked with the delightful Mavis at Methodist Hospital Station 43 from 1968-73. She was fun, caring and smart. We had many fun times both at work and socializing outside of work. You kids may remember that your mom & dad got a German Shepard puppy from me—I believe you named him Major. Rest In Peace, Mavis, a special lady indeed!

Mavis was a gift to the whole neighborhood when she walked the area collecting trash every morning. She always had a kind and gentle word for everyone she met. We are saddened by her loss. Jan and Bob
