Kathryn M. Haas, Warren, Ohio - obit

WARREN, Ohio – Kathryn M. Haas passed away Wednesday, November 30, 2016 at Humility House in Austintown.

Kathryn was born August 12, 1921 in Oil City, Pennsylvania a daughter of the late George and May Bosela Williams.

She was a 1940 graduate of Warren G. Harding High School.

During World War II she was employed at Trumbull Lamp in Warren.

On July 27, 1946, Kathryn was united into marriage with William J. Haas and together they shared 63 loving years until his passing on January 9, 2010.

A member of America’s Greatest Generation, Katy grew up during the depression and she passed along all she had experienced. Hard work, loyalty and independence were but a few of the lessons taught. She also believed in a fair and firm approach. She had a fair aim and a firm hand when called upon and enjoyed a cold beer in the summer.

Kathryn will be sadly missed by her daughter, Patricia (Raymond) Gordon of Austintown; her sons, Michael Haas of Kent and Robert (Denise) Haas of Champion; seven grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild and her guard dog, Molly.

Kathryn is preceded in death by her parents; her husband and two sisters, Ann Drebing and her twin, Mary Botko.

The family would like to thank the staff at Humility House in Austintown and everyone that helped with Mom through the later years. Caregivers are truly God’s Angels on earth.
