Obituary for Lorraine Haas

Lorraine Emma Haas, age 88 and a resident of Hartland, died in an automobile accident on Saturday, February 18, 2017, along with her daughter, Kimberly Trasciatti and son, Kevin Haas.

Lorraine was born in Detroit, Michigan on July 29, 1928, the youngest of three children to Gustav and Anna (nee. Frobel) Reck. Lorraine graduated from Bridgeman High School in 1946. The young Lorraine Reck met Rourke Haas in Bridgeman in 1947, and the couple married in September of 1948. Together they raised their eight children in the Detroit Metropolitan area, moving every five to six years, until settling in Hartland in the early 1970s.

Lorraine was an avid golfer and loved to play cards, but faith and family were the foundation of her life. She was a devout follower of the Lord and was a longtime member of Our Savior Ev. Lutheran Church. She was currently the oldest member of the church, attended services three to four times a week and kept active reading to children or helping with funeral luncheons. Lorraine was a loving person and the family matriarch. She was a mother to everyone, and the mother everyone wanted. Lorraine was always kind and willing to help or give counsel without judgement.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Rourke in 2015, son, Kerry and brother, Maurice. She is survived by her sons, Marc (Susann) Haas, Richard (Madhu) Haas, Randy Haas, Sean (Alex) Haas, Kelly (Michelle) Haas; daughter-in-law, Lisa Haas; son-in-law, Alan Trasciatti; grandchildren, Matthew, Melissa, Jamie, David, Rory, Heidi, Nic, Tyler, Joe, Sena, Joshua; eight great-grandchildren; sister, Lucille (the late Dick) Rennhack, and many extended family members and dear friends.
