At age eighteen she married Ronald "Bud" Haugen in Portland Oregon. She bore three daughters Teresa Ann, Diane and Suzanne. She is a woman who lives life honorably true to her principles.

Her deep faith in God has been a source of inspiration and strength. A few adjectives to describe this lovely woman include: Talented creative loving kind intelligent and competent. Our family had many difficult times yet she remained strong and a stabilizing force. Her influence in our lives continues into adulthood. We experienced her courage as she faced breast cancer. She fought for her life ... and won! If only we could capture in words the sparkle of her personality. Faithful wife mother and grandmother. You are well loved by your husband daughters eight grandchildren and as of this writing (March 1995) eight great-grandchildren.
