According to FindaGrave.com 5 Feb 2016:
"Parents were Peter Raven and Mary A. Christianson, both of Denmark."

At least one handwritten note on a photograph (by Edith Poapst Wallace?) gives her maiden name as "Cecilie Raure."

Her Minnesota marriage record has clearly written "Rawn." That of her son Gordon's marriage gives her name as "Cecilia Raven."
