Luella Ann Rauch, 95, died peacefully on May 30, 2015, in Roseburg, Oregon, of age related causes.  She was born in Tualatin, Oregon on April 17, 1920, to Alfred Blank and Ada (Westfall) Blank.  Along with her older brother, Mel, Luella was raised in Lake Oswego, and graduated from West Linn High School.  She met her future husband, Lynn Byron Rauch during high school  They both attended Linfield College.  Lynn and Luella were married on November 15, 1941.  Three children were born to this union,  Susan, Thomas and Mary Ann. The Rauch family moved to Powers, Oregon in 1953, where they owned and operated the Powers Market and Variety Store.  Luella was active in Lioness Club, Pottery Club, PTA, and was a great supporter of Powers High School athletics.  She enjoyed baking treats as a class room mother, and was also a Cub Scout den mother.
