Rachel Marie (Hawks) Lampl went home to be with Jesus on September 13, 2022 at Essentia in Fargo, ND.
Rachel was born in Park Rapids, MN on January 2, 1958 to Faith Fern (Fay) and Clyde Dorrick Hawks. She graduated from Park Rapids HS in 1976. She married Paul Duane Lampl on June 14, 1975. They moved to Fargo after her graduation in 1976. They were blessed with one child in March of 1977. Wanting to be home with her daughter she blessed several other families by caring for their children in her home from 1977-1984. She lovingly shared her home and the love of Jesus with over 100 foster children from 1984-1999. She worked as a nurse’s aide at St.Lukes Hospital in Fargo and then returned to school and received her nursing degree in 2001. This was a lifelong dream for her. She worked in the hospital settings and in Home care. Her favorite was Home care and she found her passion in caring for medically challenging clients in their homes. Rachel shared her healing touch and her love for Jesus with many patients and families until she retired from nursing due to health issues in 2020.
Rachel loved animals and opened her home to all kinds of animals as well as enjoyed caring for them. Her farm became a refuge for many animals over the years. Her favorite pets however, were her beloved Monkeys.
She is preceded in death by her husband Paul Lampl, her parents Faith and Clyde Hawks, Sister Eva (Hawks) Fritz, Sister Patricia (Hawks) Johnson, Brother Timothy Hawks.
She is survived by her daughter and Grandson. Sister Kathleen (Hawks) LaGue of Mahnomen, MN, Curtis Hawks of Park Rapids, MN, Steven Hawks of Mahnomen, MN. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews.
I know that she will continue to intercede for each and every one of those that she loved and knew. She did not want anyone to fuss over her so in her final requests there will be no funeral service for her. She will be buried at the Rollag cemetery next to Paul. I am asking if you want to give a memorial in her name to your local church or favorite charity or an animal shelter. That would be a way to honor her as she always tried to help those in need.
