Dennis Rauenhorst

Dennis John Rauenhorst was born on November 9, 1947, in Medford, Oregon, the oldest child of John and Catherine (Korman) Rauenhorst. He moved to Olivia in 1950 and also lived in Willmar. Dennis has lived at a REM home in Marshall since 1977. Dennis worked for Advance Opportunities. He enjoyed watching the Minnesota Vikings and Twins. He also loved visiting with people and typically began most conversations with “Did your car start?” Dennis also enjoyed going out for a cup of coffee or a Diet Coke. Dennis especially adored his special relationship with his brother Bill. Dennis died on Tuesday, July 4, 2017, at his residence in Marshall, under the care of Prairie Home Hospice of Marshall. He is survived by his brothers William “Bill” Rauenhorst of Marshall, Steven Rauenhorst of Redwood Falls, Glen Rauenhorst of the Twin Cities, sister Mary Kae (and Michael) Gaede of Fort Collins, Colorado, his housemates and friends at REM and co-workers at Advance Opportunities. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother Fred Rauenhorst.

Words fall short of expressing my sorrow for your loss. May you find comfort and hope in the Bible promise of a resurrection found in Acts 24:15 And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous and at John 5:28 Do not be amazed this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out How thankful we can be for the sure hope of seeing our dear loved ones again.
