Marion L. Rauscher

February 22, 2018



Marion L. Rauscher passed away on February 22, 2018 following a lengthy illness.


Born in Scranton on January 5, 1937, she was the eldest child of the late Joseph “Scotty” Gower and Marion Noone Gower. Marion resided in Wilkes-Barre for most of her adult life, and is survived by her husband of over 55 years, Ludwig “Lou” Rauscher, and sons Lou and Scott.


Also surviving are sisters, Ann Marie McLaughlin and Jean Paris, Scranton; brother Joseph Gower and his wife, Robin, New Jersey; many nieces, nephews, and numerous cousins.


In times of good health, Marion enjoyed spending time with family and friends. She was an excellent cook who liked to shop, celebrate her favorite holidays, and sing in the old St. Boniface church choir.


She was an avid reader, and an enthusiast of classic cinema, theatre, and many types of music.


Marion maintained a lifelong devotion to St. Anne, faithfully attending the solemn novena every July until her health began to fail.


In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother James.


At the request of the deceased, there will be no calling hours. Funeral services will be held privately at the family’s convenience.


The strife is o’er. May she rest in peace.
