Birth: 1894

Death: Dec. 24, 1902

Second oldest child and first daughter of Johann (John) Ruebhausen and Helen Wilhelmina von Grummisch Ruebhausen. Sister to Fred, Helen, Frances, Edythe and Carol (aka Esther). A darling, endearing child, nicknamed Racie, whose friendliness cost her her life. While traveling on a train, she played with a child seated nearby and unfortunately contacted diphtheria, which was then passed along to my grandmother, Frances. A vaccine had recently been developed and Frances was the second person in Salt Lake City to receive one. Sadly, it was too late for Racie and she was to die on Christmas Eve at the age of eight. Earlier in the month, she had written a letter to Santa Claus, asking for a bride and groom doll set. Although initially placed under the tree, the dolls were brought to her bedroom and was told Santa had come early Christmas Eve morning, just for her. She died with them near her and after brief family services, darling Racie was buried late Christmas Eve afternoon, with her beloved dolls. Tragedy continued to mark the Ruebhausen family as three years later, a stillborn baby girl was delivered on April 28, 1905 and was pronounced dead at 3:45pm. She, too was interred in Salt Lake City Cemetery next to her sister the following day, April 29th.
