Grace E Haugen, 98 slept peacefully away April 26, 2013, at home surrounded by family. Grace was born April 19, 1915, in Detroit, Mich.
Grace was amazingly cognizant right up until the time she closed her eyes for the final time. She grew up in a time when high school was a luxury that most could not afford, so she went to work right after eighth grade. Grace always enjoyed crossword puzzles and keeping up with current events. She learned computers well enough to become internet savvy, and she used her skills to keep up with current times via emails to her friends and studying the Drudge report.
In 1942, Grace married the love of her life Olaf K Haugen. Ole and Grace shared travel adventures together for many years after his retirement and spent the summers in Ole’s favorite place, Superior.
Grace is survived by her son Robert K and daughter-in-law Tally of Statesville, N.C. and her son Richard D. and daughter-in-law Michelle D Haugen of Divide, Colo.
Grace will be interned with husband Ole at Riverside Cemetery in Superior.
