Barbara A. Hauck, age 89, of Sturgis, passed away peacefully early on March 12, 2014. Her last day on Earth was spent surrounded by her loving family and her friends.
Barb was born Aug. 4, 1924, in Iowa, a daughter of the late George and Barbara Pettigrew.
While in Iowa, Barb met and married her late husband, Daniel Hauck.
After leaving Iowa, Barb moved to Indiana, where her husband took a teaching position at Howe Military School. Barb taught at Head Start for a number of years before she retired.
She is survived by a daughter, Trish (Larry) Grubb of Howe, Ind.; a son, Tim Hauck of Pearland, Texas; a grandson, Scott (Renee) Grubb of Howe; and two great-grandchildren, Ashlynn and Skylar Grubb.
Barb was preceded in death by her husband, Daniel; and a daughter, B. Lynn Hauck.
According to Barb’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private burial of the ashes will take place at a later date. The Rosenberg Chapel of Hackman Family Funeral Homes, 807 E. Chicago Road, Sturgis, has been entrusted with the arrangements.
Barb loved her flowers, so the family suggests those wishing to make a memorial donation in Barb’s memory consider Sturgis Garden Club. Envelopes are available at the funeral home.
