Beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Friend, and Teacher Margie Rauch, 78, died on April 28 of a stroke. She passed away peacefully at Stanford Hospital, surrounded by loving family. She left her children, Marta, Erik, and Loren, and their families, including five grandchildren; her brother, Andy Beyer and his family; and her cousins Kathryn Posin, Elena Pehlke, Glenn Schweitzer, and their families. She was predeceased by her husband, Herbert E. Rauch, and son Evan Rauch, in whose honor she helped endow the U. C. Berkeley "Evan Rauch Chair of Neuroscience." Margie attended Stanford University, and received a degree in Education with a focus on early childhood development. While at Stanford, she met Herb, the love of her life, and they married in 1961. They made their home in Los Altos where they raised their children. Margie enjoyed reading to her children, singing with them, showing them the natural world, bringing them on trips and adventures, and cheering at their sporting events - including many soccer games.
