WARREN — Kathryn M. Haas, 95, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2016, at Humility House in Austintown.

Kathryn was born Aug. 12, 1921, in Oil City, Pa., a daughter of the late George and May Bosela Williams.

She was a 1940 graduate of Warren G. Harding High School. During World War II, she was employed at Trumbull Lamp in Warren.

Kathryn was a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish at the SS. Cyril and Methodius worship site and was an active member of the church’s Altar and Rosary Society.

On July 27, 1946, Kathryn was united into marriage with William J. Haas and together they shared 63 loving years until his passing Jan. 9, 2010.

A member of America’s Greatest Generation, Katy grew up during the Depression, and she passed along all she had experienced. Hard work, loyalty and independence were but a few of the lessons taught. She also believed in a fair and firm approach. She had a fair aim and a firm hand when called upon and enjoyed a cold beer in the summer.

Kathryn will be sadly missed by her daughter, Patricia (Raymond) Gordon of Austintown; her sons, Michael Haas of Kent and Robert (Denise) Haas of Champion; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and her guard dog, Molly.

Kathryn was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and two sisters, Ann Drebing and her twin, Mary Botko.

The family would like to thank the staff at Humility House in Austintown and everyone who helped with Mom through the later years. Caregivers are truly God’s Angels on Earth.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish Building Fund, 185 Laird Ave. NE, Warren, OH 44483, in Kathryn’s name.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered 11 a.m. Monday, Dec. 5, 2016, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish at the SS. Cyril and Methodius worship site, 1234 High St. NE, Warren, with the Rev. Craig A. McHenry officiating. Friends may call 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4, 2016, at Staton-Borowski Funeral Home, 962 North Road NE, Warren and one hour prior to the services Monday at the church.
