Betty Ann Rauch Obituary
July 8, 1927 - June 2, 2015 A loving mother and grandmother, Betty Ann (Halicus) Rauch passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family at the age of 87. She was born in Los Angeles, grew up in Long Beach, and lived most of her life in Seal Beach, CA. She was a graduate of UCLA in 1948 and a proud member of the Delta Zeta sorority. After the death of her husband, Leo Rauch, in 1962, she went to work as personnel manager at Buffum's department store. Upon retirement she devoted herself to numerous charitable and political causes, mostly related to women, children and education, taking a leadership role in organizations such as American Association of University Women, Friends of the Seal Beach Public Library, and many others too numerous to list. Those who knew Betty Ann will remember her outgoing nature, infectious laugh, keen intellect, and kindness to all. She is survived by her daughter Susan, son-in-law Edward, and granddaughter, Elizabeth Tschabrun. A memorial gathering is being planned.
