Carol J. Haas, 81 of Jefferson, joined her Savior in Heaven on Monday, September 21, 2020.
Carol was born on January 8, 1939 in La Crosse, WI, the daughter of Edward and Laura (Peaslee) Pratt. She graduated from Logan High School in La Crosse in 1956. On December 20, 1957 she married Robert Haas, after knowing him just 6 weeks and the couple had 4 children. Carol and Bob would have celebrated 63 years of marriage in December. Carol was more than an avid reader. She read an average of 140 novels a year and read the bible – cover to cover 23 times. Her knowledge was vast, and she was a valuable reference. She was a collector, amassing over 1000 dolls and enjoyed accumulating butter pat dishes. She followed the Green Bay Packers closely and had ownership in the franchise. Her and her husband have seen all 50 states and many foreign countries. Carol and Bob have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles together with their “girls” (dogs) Kiki, Kizzie, and Poppy. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church of Lake Mills and the family is comforted in knowing that she is now resting in Paradise.
She is survived by: her husband Bob Haas of Jefferson; children Bonnie Lynn of AZ, Robert Jr. of Lake Mills, and Kelly Jean of TX; 8 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Carol is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents, daughter Lauri Ann, 2 brothers, and 3 sisters.
