Obituary of Lois Rahme

Please share a memory of Lois to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Lois Rahme, 93, of Ocean City , NJ  passed away peacefully at her home with her loved ones by her side on  July 24, 2022.

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to the late Earl and Gertrude (nee Leypoldt) Kullmann, she had many great memories of her childhood in Wisconsin especially spending family summers at her grandparent’s house at Lake Okauchee.  Lois attended Juneau High School in Milwaukee. After graduating from high school, Lois relocated with her family to Woodbury, NJ. She attended Glassboro State College  (Rowan University) where she met her future husband, Conrad, and graduated with a BS degree.  Conrad and Lois were married for 67 years prior to his passing in 2019 and together their lives were full of many good and wonderful years.  Lois was a teacher for over 20 years in the Mt. Ephraim and Haddon Heights school districts.  After raising their family in Haddon Heights,  Connie and Lois lived in Clearwater, Florida before returning to Ocean City, NJ where they  resided for the past 20 years.

Lois lived life with enthusiasm and determination. She had a special interest in exploring new places and nature. She enjoyed the shore wildlife and in particular the night herons that returned each year to nest in the backyard. Travel, reading, and playing bridge gave her enjoyment but the best times were always with family and friends. She was generous in time and spirit and had an enormous capacity for friendship.  She volunteered at Shore Medical Center, was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary in Ocean City and was active in the Parkinson Life Center of Southern New Jersey. She was named a Paul Harris Fellow with the Rotary Club. Lois was also a long time member of Grace Lutheran Church in Somers Point, NJ.

In addition to her husband, Conrad, she was predeceased by her siblings: Jean Burke, Ruth Carroll  and James Kullmann.  She is survived by her beloved children: Glenn (Laurie) Rahme, Donna (Michael) Ratliff,  and John “Jack” Rahme.  Also surviving are her loving grandchildren: Alissa, Derek, Brandon, Michael, Matthew and Paisley as well as five great grandchildren: Ava, Simone, Jacob, Austin and Adalynn.  In addition to 19 nieces and nephews, she is survived by brother-in-law Alan Carroll and sister-in-law Ellie Kullmann as well her devoted caregivers, Nancy and Bella , and many dear long-time friends.

A service of Memory and Love will be offered on Wednesday, August 31st at 11 o’clock from Grace Lutheran Church, Shore Road, Somers Point where friends may call from ten o’clock until the time of service.  Burial will follow in Cape May County Veterans Cemetery, Cape May Court House, NJ.
