Carole Ann Haag

January 18, 1942 ‒ August 27, 2017

Mansfield, Ohio

Carole Ann Haag entered the Pearly Gates by being sung to by her 2 yr old great-great niece singing “Happy Birthday” while her family members in Heaven came to take her “Home” on Sunday August 27, 2017 in her Mansfield home surrounded by family.

She was born January 18, 1942 to parents Ralph & Effie (McNeely) Barrett in Mansfield. Carole married Daryl Haag on November 22, 1958 at St. John’s United Church of Christ. They shared 58 wonderful years of marriage together.

After staying home with her children for several years, Carole began working at Therm-O-Disc in 1972. She later left and worked for Diela’s Photo lab, and then Hartman Electric until she was laid off. Carole then returned to Therm-O-Disc until retiring in 2006. Always the prankster, Carole loved to laugh and make others laugh – she made work fun.

In her spare time, Carole enjoyed crocheting. She made beautiful snowflakes, angels, baby outfits and afghans for family & friends. The Haags spent many weekends perch fishing on their boat at their lake home on Lake Erie.  After retirement they spent more time there. Lovingly known as “Grammy” by all the grandchildren, she was their biggest supporter at all of their sporting events. She will be remembered by always including a couple of “Hershey Kisses” in their birthday cards. Family dinners and gatherings at the Haag household were always full of love and laughter.  Carole enjoyed cooking for her family.

She loved her friends like family, and the love for her family was very special. Her smile was contagious and will be missed by all who loved her.

She is survived by her husband Daryl W. Haag; children Dana Haag, Dirk (Julie) Haag, and David (Jessica) Haag; grandchildren Chris, Tina (Levi), Devan, Josh, Matt, Brent, Torrey, David, and Makenzi; great grandchildren Jeff, Lucas, Abbie, Alivia, Kennedy, Sofia, and Ally; sisters Beverly (Charles) Bauer, and Mary Lou Householder; and sister-in-law’s  Patricia Barrett and Joan Barrett.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son Daryl W. Haag, Jr. and brothers William “Bunk” Barrett, Ralph “Jack” Barrett, Robert Barrett, and Norman McNeely.

The Haag family will receive friends from 2-4 p.m. on Friday, September 1, 2017 in the Marion Avenue Snyder Funeral Home Finefrock Chapel with a memorial service beginning at 4 p.m. Officiating is the Rev. Dr. Faith Proietti.

Contributions in Carole’s memory to OhioHealth Hospice may be made at the funeral home.

  • Dear Cousin Daryl, Dana, and Family…….

    Although I am anything but good at this, I hope and pray that It can be understood how much we loved and enjoyed Carols laughter and comforting presence as well as her special, beautiful smile that I for one, never saw her without.

    She is one of the few people in my lifetime that I never forgot how special she is. I say is, because to me her special memory is still with me and always will be, and now she abides in Heaven. Even though circumstances have brought us to South Carolina, our hearts and memories of our years there, stay constant and do not fade.

    I only wish I could take away some of your sadness and pain, but with prayer and time I believe it will at least diminish some what.
    A very special song by Micheal Phelps “The end of the Beginning” says it better.
    And “In Christ alone” by the Booth Brothers also.
    But for now I am sure that Carols spirit is resting with the Angels in Heaven. For our spirits surely will live forever and we will all see her again one day soon.

    Daryl, Dana and family, please trust in God, turn inward toward all of your own, and comfort one another with the softness of memories and the pain will ease………

    Love and miss you all …… Jerry, Darlene and families

  • Condolences to all her Family. She will always be remembered for her smile and the love she shared with her family and friends.

Hugs and Prayers to you all.
