Posted in Chatfield Obituaries

Ione Pernella Haugen, formerly of Chatfield, died Friday, May 15, 2015, at Samaritan Bethany Nursing Home on Eighth in Rochester, where she had resided for almost four years.

She was born Jan. 30, 1929, in Spring Grove, to Peter and Ida (Otterness) Gulbranson. She graduated from Spring Grove High School in 1946. Following graduation, she completed Teachers Training School in Preston and taught at a rural school in Houston County. On July 17, 1948, she married Dale S. Haugen at the Black Hammer Lutheran Church in rural Spring Grove. Ione was a homemaker and did substitute teaching for a number of years.

She was a longtime member in the Chatfield community and supported her children and husband, Dale, who was in education for many years. The community of students and friends became their extended family. She was a member of the Chatfield Lutheran Church and active in many WELCA activities. Ione was an avid reader, and bridge card hostess, and also grew to love fishing on the Mississippi River near Wabasha. They retired to live in Rochester. Her most cherished love was Dale, as they were married 63 years and loved spending time together with their family.

Survivors include two daughters: Patricia (David) Reiland of Rochester and Kathryn (Larry) Hawk of Chaska; eight grandchildren: Keri (Dan) Halberg of Rochester, Kelly (Raymundo) Mares of Rochester, Erik Schmidt of Chaska, Katelyn Schmidt of Minnetonka, Jenny Hawk Johnson of Savage, Amanda (Travis) Hagaman of Shakopee, Chris Hawk of Belle Plaine and Jason Hawk of Savage. She is also survived by seven great-grandchildren, Salana and Ximena Mares of Rochester, Kazia Hawk Johnson of Savage, Gavin and Hunter Hawk of Belle Plaine and Madison, and Hailey Hawk of Savage.

Memorial service was held 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 19, at Chatfield Lutheran Church, with Pastor Mark Docken officiating. Visitation with family was one hour before service at the church. Following the service, burial took place in the Chatfield Cemetery.

Thank you to the Riley Funeral Home of Chatfield and the staff of Chatfield Lutheran Church along with the Samaritan Bethany Nursing Home staff of Rochester for their care and service to Ione and her family.

Riley Funeral Home of Chatfield was in charge of arrangements.
