LuAnn (Weeks) Raschke, 59, passed peacefully in the comfort of her home on Monday July 12, 2021, after her battel with cancer. A ceremony will be held Thursday July 22, 2021, at 2:30 PM at Trinity Lutheran Church, where she had been a member since childhood.
LuAnn was born on June 15, 1962, in Benton Harbor to Neale Manley Weeks and Sally Ann (McTague) Weeks . She was one of five siblings: Neale, Larry, Richard, and Laura. She was a graduate of the 1980 class from Benton Harbor High School. From there, she worked at State Tool & Manufacturing for many years, Trinity Lutheran School & Early Childhood Center, and later moved to LECO Corporation where she worked for five years before being forced into retirement due to her illness.
Although her illness was not a blessing, it did allow LuAnn to reconnect with her three daughters: Emily, Anna, and Rachel. During this time, she was able to take her dream vacations to Colorado and the Bahamas and live the last few years to the fullest. She was surrounded with love and compassion by her daughters and relatives in her last moments.
She is survived by her daughters, Emily, Anna, and Rachel Raschke.
