Farrah Rose Rauch, 17


Farrah Rose Rauch, also known as Fae-ven, died at age 17 on Feb. 28. Farrah had a huge heart for people. Her mother was Heather Sue Rauch (Hausmann-Heaton) and her father was Steven Rauch. Survived are her siblings; Jett Steven Rauch and Ty Daniel Rauch. Grandparents were Rosalie Rauch, Douglas Peter Rauch, Renee Hausmann (husband Gary) and Jeff Baker. Farrah has many aunts, uncles, cousins and great cousins in four territories of the United States: west coast, midwest, east coast and Florida.

Viewing of her beautiful well-known face and “Celebrating Farrah’s Life” will be on March 10 at the Old Dana College Campus Clock Tower Building housed now by the most amazing Christ Lutheran Church Campus located at 2905 College St., Blair. Service begins at 2 p.m. and likely, quite the event with music, prayer, a beautiful message by Pastor Mark and a mini-marathon 12-step meeting on the side. Come one and come all and bid farewell to a most blessed soul! We love you Farrah!

Farrah was born in Santa Barbara, Calif. She attended the Santa Barbara Oaks Parent Workshop and then Monte Vista. She loved to kayak, surf, skateboard, going on Bill’s boat and taking trips to all the Islands off the Santa Barbara coast. She loved swimming at Red Rock, tidepools and hiking all the local Santa Barbara trails and running around Castle Park. She was a star hockey player and had a mean face-off! She was a member of Ocean Hills Church on the Beach and loved having birthday parties at the Santa Barbara Zoo.

She moved to Blair in 2009 and attended West, Arbor, Otte and Blair High School. She continued soccer in Blair and was accepted into the Girls Show Choir. She loved to snow ski and zipline at Mt. Crescent for free, as her dad was a ski instructor there. Farrah enjoyed Lake Okeechobee, Adventureland and road trips with her best friends and brothers; to east coast, west coast and everywhere in between. She loved the spas and chai lattes with her mom and many other adventures in life.

She developed her music and was becoming quite the singer-songwriter, finding an avenue to express her inner emotions and challenges in her life. She loved to play video games with Jett and the two of them became best of friends. Farrah will be missed and never forgotten every single day; forever while we are on this earth. I know Rosie, Percy, Nari and Fireheart will miss her dearly, too.
