She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack Haga; six brothers, Donley, Roey, Luther, Lester, Walter and Joe Hart; and two sisters, Reba Hart and Hattie Price.
Mrs. Haga never lost sight of what was truly important in her life. She had an abiding faith that never wavered and an unconditional love for her family and friends.
