Edith Rahe’s love of life didn’t come to an end with her passing. Her contagious love, compassion and joyous spirit will forever live on in all the lives she touched.
Edith passed peacefully on July 19, 2022 at the age of 86 surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor her legacy by living their lives to the fullest spreading love, compassion and joy the way Edith taught them to.

Rahe on January 15, 1955 in Birnamwood, Wisconsin where they started their life-long journey together after dating for one month. In 1959 they moved to Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Edith’s greatest joy was her family, though she worked full-time for 30 years at Bemis Manufacturing, her family was always her love and focus. Prior to Bemis, Edith worked for Sheboygan Iron Metal and also shared her time as a caregiver.

Your mom was such an inspiration to me with her ever-present positive attitude toward life. She went through some of the hardest times in her lifetime, yet never let them get her down. She always plowed on through and became more resolute with her drive and positive attitude. You could not have had a better role model in life, Brenda, Debbie, and Henry. God’s peace and blessings as you carry forth with the beautiful love and memories of your dear mother.
