June 14, 1916 – December 14, 2019

   Vera was born June 14, 1916, in Detroit, Michigan. 

   She married Norman J. Raupp in 1931 and had 13 beautiful children: Joyce, Patricia, Marilyn, Leonard, Norman Jr., Christine, Douglas, Catherine, Lawrence, Michael, Mary, Ronald, and Charlotte.  She also called Laura and Chet Schreiber her children and included them when talking to others about her children for many, many decades.  She is the grandmother of 32, the great-grandmother of 55, and great-great-grandmother of 8. 

   Vera loved her family and traveling around the United States, as well as several trips to other countries.  As a young child she loved ice skating and being outdoors; in later years she enjoyed reading and fashion. 

   Her remains will be put to rest at Fairview Cemetery in Colorado Springs, with her love, Norman.  We know they will enjoy the view of the mountains and rest together forever, while remaining in our hearts.

This Obituary Has 2 Condolences

  1. I personally did not know Vera but, my thoughts are with the family. I hope you can find comfort where I too have found in the past, 2 Cor. 1:4 “Who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trail with the comfort that we receive from God.”

  2. So sorry for loss of your mother …what an awesome family she had and you took care of her well. Wish we had been able to get out there and gotten to know her better. Our Jessica and Nick will always remember the road trip we took out there and Nick got to drive his grandma around like “driving Miss Daisy”….I think she really loved that too. Love you all. Charlie and Cindy Layman
