Mark, 75, passed away peacefully at his home in Lawndale, Calif.
He was born April 13, 1946, in East Chicago, Ind., to Nick and Ann Mausen.
The then-family of five resided in Illinois until 1948, when they moved to Sweet Home.
One year later, they moved to Virginia, Minn., before returning to Sweet Home.

He moved to Portland in the years following to attend Portland State and was employed over the years by Portland Rubber Stamp, Georgia Pacific, Tidewater, Bechtold, Louisiana Pacific, and retired from Georgia Pacific, while living in Atlanta, Ga.
Retired, Mark moved to sunny California in 2006, where he enjoyed traveling as often as possible. He was a dedicated volunteer at Cedars-Sinai Hospital.
In his spare time, he loved watching old, classic sitcoms, over and over again. He loved trying new recipes, and having friends over to enjoy the feast.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Ann and Nick Mausen; and sister, Madelyn Sant.
Mark is survived by his partner, Derrick Rankins; brothers Nick (Pat) Mausen of Redmond, Tim (Connie) Mausen of Lebanon, and John Mausen of San Jose, Calif.; and sisters, Diane (Kathi Jackson) Mausen of Clatskanie, and Julie (Jeff) Fosnaugh of Sunnyvale, Calif.
