    Raeann, you are forever in my memory a bright, cheerful classmate growing up at Shanley High School with me. You were always friendly and a friend to everyone. If I remember correctly, you lived across the street during high school and probably had the easiest commute of anyone. I always thought of you as a bit wiser and more grown up than the rest of our lot. You will be missed.

    I am very sorry for your loss. Although I did not know your loved one personally, I hope knowing that they are in our loving heavenly Father’s memory will bring your family comfort during this difficult time. Very soon now we can look forward to God’s promise at a Revelation 21:4: “… Death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore, the former thing have passed away.”

    My heart is heavy and the tears flow for everyone that misses you and loves you. I have known you a long time, I have no words to express my grief and sorrow. You were always, always, always cheerful and so sweet. You will always be known as my Madonna singer, because no one can sing it like you.
    When I see your mom, I see you and I will take comfort in that and find peace with your passing. May Norma, Jared, Gina and Bianca find peace and comfort during this difficult time and may you continue to surround them with your eternal light. May you rest in peace and fly high among the angels in heaven.
    Until we meet again, my friend, surrounded by the purple ribbon.

  23. Amie Martens says:

    I will remember going out with friends and running into her often. Always smiling and welcoming me to join the fun. I’m not sure I ever saw her not smiling. I will miss seeing her at events and running into her randomly. Always was a treat. No matter how much time passed it seemed like I just saw her yesterday. She really had a knack to make people feel comfortable and accepted. Truly a child of God. Raeanne you were a gift to all who were blessed to meet you.

  24. Tina Pierce says:

    Thinking of you. I remember Raeann from when you would come to Cando to visit Mary and Norman. May you find peace in the coming days.

  25. Yolanda Hanson says:

    Jared and Norma,
    I do not even know where to start with this entry. I am total disbelief that this young beautiful soul was taking from all of us to soon. Norma, I grew to love you and Raeann thru my life, all you ever talked about was her and it showed you were an amazing mother whom would do anything for this sweet face. I finally got to know Raeann soon after, and felt like i knew her even the 1st time we met, we kicked if off. I feel like i was there thru her accomplishments and thru her pain while she was sick. Who knew her fight would end way to soon. I am so sorry for your loss and believe this is going to be very tough for so many, including me. Norma i love you and you!! You and Jared are in my prayers. Condolences to the entire family and friends of Raeann, she was an ray of sunshine every time we’d see her. I sure am going to miss her and her crazy sense of humor. I love you Raeann and i wished i could have said good bye.
    Good bye my sweet friend,
    your “christina Millian” (inside joke with her and I)

    I was so happy to have known you as your Nurse when you had to come in to the hospital for the extended days of IV’s and RT therapy to help you threw this disease.
    I say I had many good talks and fun times with you and your mother although the many inpatient stays were very difficult for you.
    I Pray that your mother and family and friends and loved ones can find some relief throughout this time of sadness as they journey threw the grief process.
    And comfort in knowing your resting with the Lord.
    I pray they may feel a healing peace from all the love and prayers from those you leave behind.
    Your memories will live on always in the hearts of those you had contact with.
    I believe you lived life to the fullest extent girl and I treasured the time I new you!
    Raeann rest in Peace .

  35. Lisa Schwinden says:

    I’m so sorry to hear of Raeann’s passing. I remember her from the ‘old’ days at St. Anthony’s Junior High. Being such a small class, you got to know everyone and we were like a big family. She was a passionate person and will be missed.

  36. Jeff Holien - Surrey, ND. says:

    Norma Ann, I am very sorry for the loss of your Daughter Raeann. I know what you are going through, nothing in this world will ever replace your loss. You will think of Her every day in some way or another. Some thoughts will make you cry others will make you smile and some may even make you giggle a little. Cherish them all for the rest of your life and she will be with you always in your heart.
    In times of sadness I have found comfort and solace in prayer to our Blessed Mother who is our Mother of Sorrow as she watched Her Son die. Take Care. My Prayers are with you and your Family.

  37. Linda Tegtmeier, MSUM Fin Aid says:

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Though I hadn’t seen Raeann since she graduated from MSUM, I remember watching her grow and mature throughout her college years–always with a smile even through the difficult times. What I saw is that you gave her such strong and dependable support–she matured into a lovely young lady! My prayers are with you as I too know the pain of losing a child too soon. God bless you and all of her family. May He comfort and strengthen you until you meet again.
