Louise Rahmann Obituary

Louise Rahmann, 82, passed away peacefully at home in Irvine, California on September 4, 2021.  She is survived by her husband of 61 years Calvin; son Kevin and his wife Teri; daughter Karen Ortega and her husband Daniel Ortega; son Steven and his wife Hilda; granddaughters Julia and Natalya Rahmann; grandsons Cody and Taylor Rahmann and Daniel Adam Ortega; great grandson Andre’ Ortega; and great granddaughters Bailey, Daisy, and Sophie Rahmann.  Louise was preceded in death by her grandson Christopher Ortega.

Louise was born on June 19, 1939 in Northfield, Minnesota.  After graduating from Northfield High School in 1957, she began her over 50 year career as a nurse after attending and graduating from the Ancker Hospital School of Nursing in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1960.  She later earned a Master of Science Degree in Nursing from California State University, Dominguez Hills.  Among the honors Louise received for her passion as a nurse and diabetes educator include Nurse of the Year at both Scripps Memorial Hospital and Sharp Memorial Hospital of San Diego, as well as at Desert Oasis Healthcare in Palm Springs.

Louise was a kind, loving, and incredibly hard working woman with a wonderful ability to always brighten people’s days.  She lived a rich and active life.  When she was younger, she enjoyed backpacking and skiing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  She loved to walk daily and especially enjoyed walking on the beach.  She always kept a positive attitude despite any obstacles life threw in her path.  She was comforted in death by her strong faith in the Lord.  Louise touched many lives and will be dearly missed.

  3. I was lucky enough to be touched by this angel. She changed my life forever, and a piece of my heart has gone with her. She had true grit, and determination. She loved her family and her friends. She was quite simply the kindest; most selfless person I have ever known. Her smile, and her sense of humor will remain in my heart forever.

  4. We met Louise at Cody and Marissa’s wedding. She was so sweet and delightful and we enjoyed watching her and Calvin dance. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family as they morn the loss of a very special lady.
