Here they are in 1940, with their name spelled as Rapp. It looks like Emma re-married

I would not say for sure they changed it to Rapp, the enumerator could have misheard the name, or spelled it wrong.
I think that Paul Raab who died in California is a pretty good possiblity. I would suggest you put a request on the Riverside County board, and see if someone will look for an obit for him

Stanley,s parents listed as Paul Joseph Raab b. Germany and Emma Marie EHERNBERG b: 1892 in Stanton, Ill. Paul and Emma must have divorced also.
