Nicki L. (Corsen) Raufer

Nicki L. [Corsen] Raufer, 70, a long-time resident of Cinnaminson, New Jersey, passed away on November 5, 2019, surrounded by her family. She grew up in Lancaster, Ohio, and met her husband, Roger Raufer, at Ohio University. They were happily married for 48 years.

In recent years, she traveled widely with her husband, including visits to France, Greece, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Most recently, they were living in Nanjing, China.

Not sure what to say?

Nicki s passing is so sad. She will be missed a lot and remembered very fondly. A wonderful person! Many good memories of Curves, as well as, our impromptu lunches when she was home from China now & then. God bless Nicki and all of her family. My love and sympathy to all who knew Nicki and loved her.

I am so sorry to hear of Nicki's passing! Shocked! I was friends with her for years since she joined the Curves in Cinnaminson. She was also in our book group. I lost touch with her when she moved to China.
I'm in Florida so I won't be able to make it to the funeral but I'll certainly be praying for her and for all of you. God Bless.
