Rozinia “Rosie” Haugen went to be with the Lord on March 27, 2017 at St. Clare’s Living Community in Mora, Minnesota. She was 99 years old.

Rozinia Lucille (Johnson) Haugen was born to Arthur and Emma Johnson on December 18, 1917 at home near Red Top Minnesota in Aitken County. She lived there with her parents, sister Helen and brother Raymond until 1922. Her family then moved to Detroit Michigan where her father was employed in the auto industry. She finished her schooling in Detroit graduating from the 8th grade in 1931. She returned to Minnesota at that time to help care for her elderly grandparents (Jonas and Anna Elvendahl) in Dalbo, Minnesota.

Rosie met Roy E. Haugen around this time and they were united in marriage July 27, 1935. They were blessed with one child, Patricia. They made their home on Roy’s home farm in Knife Lake Township until 1941 when Roy was drafted during WW II. Rosie and Patricia moved to Detroit Michigan at this time to live near Arthur and Emma Johnson while Roy was overseas serving his country. Rosie, Roy and Patricia returned to the farm after the war to resume farming and tending the land.

Rosie worked at Mora High School for many years until retiring; she made sure everyone had their vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K.

Rosie was a devoted Christian who read her Bible every day and was a member of Hillman Baptist Church. There she taught Sunday school and Bible school during her earlier years.

Rosie loved her family very much; she had kind words for everyone. Rosie was a “Grama” to many people and neighborhood kids.

Rosie loved to cook and bake for her family making chicken dumpling soup, Carmel rolls, sugar cookies and most of all her chocolate chip cookies as signature specialties. We will forever miss her hugs, bright smile and sense of humor.

Love you Mom, Grama, Great Grama, Great-Great Grama, Aunt and Friend.

Rosie is survived by her daughter Patricia (Vernon) Lovaas of Mora; grandchildren, Keith (Karen) Lovaas of Brooklyn Center, and Diane (Robert) Odencrans of Mora; great grandchildren, Andrew (Robyn) Odencrans of Mora; Adam (Nikki) Lovaas of Roseville, Kristina (Angel) Sosa of St. Paul and Michael (Mandy) Odencrans of Ogilvie; great-great grandchildren, Spencer Odencrans, Aydan Odencrans, Anabele Odencrans, Cooper Odencrans, Scarlet Sosa and Oscar Lovaas.

Rosie is preceded in death by her parents Arthur and Emma (Elvendahl) Johnson , husband Roy E. Haugen, sister Helen (Johnson) Lind, brother Raymond Johnson, niece Renee (Lind) Kadlec and nephew Deward Mattson.

When I visited her across the hall a couple of weeks ago, I really think she knew me. She looked at me with those big brown eyes, smiled and squeezed my hand, then went back to sleep. I will miss her very much. With much love, sincerely Ruth Johnson Bassett (99 in May)
