Obituary for Caroline Haas
Caroline Haas was born in Grayson on November 10, 1930. Caroline was the 3rd of 8 children born to Frank and Pauline (nee Exner) Fuchs. She grew up in the Grayson area and attended Hauer School until 1937 when her family moved to a farm east of Grayson and she then attended school at Grayson where she finished grade eight. Caroline was a good ball player and mostly helped her father work on the farm as well as helping with the barn dances they hosted. It was in the summer of 1951 that she met the love of her life, Jack Haas, at a sports day, and they married on November 10, 1953 in Grayson. Caroline was kind, friendly and she had a good sense of humor. She learned to cook when she got married and became a great cook and baker. She also had a huge garden. In 1991 her son Ken took over the farm, Jack and Caroline semi-retired and moved to an acreage just south of the family farm. They had 7 children, 12 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.
Caroline enjoyed playing cards, dancing, listening to music, crocheting and watching Monday night wrestling with Jack as well as visiting with whoever happened to appear at their doorstep. Her mobility declined over the past 20 years and she couldn’t get out much. In the fall of 2015, Jack and Caroline moved to Melville and that October Jack passed away. Caroline missed her soulmate and best friend dearly. She moved into the St Paul Lutheran home in March of 2016. She enjoyed the activities there and always spoke of all the friends she had there. Caroline was battling the flu these past few weeks and passed away on February 22, 2018.
