Obituary for CAROL J. HAUGERUD

December 19, 1933 August 8, 2013
Scio, Oregon

Carol Gwinn Haugerud, 79, passed away at her home in Scio, OR, of leukemia
after living with cancer for many years. She was born and raised in Omak, WA
where her father, Mac, developed a variety of local businesses including the
local gas station and her mother Ursul, cared for the home. She attended school
and graduated from Omak High School in 1951. She remained lifelong friends with
many of her childhood classmates. She continued her education at Whitman
College in Walla Walla WA where she received her BA in Social Sciences in 1955.
While at Whitman she met her future husband Carl Haugerud. Immediately
following graduation, she taught third grade at Gregory Heights Grade School in
Burien, WA. In 1956 she married Carl Haugerud, and they were married for 57
years. They moved to Salem shortly after their marriage where Carl worked for
the State of Oregon and Carol focused on raising their family. In 1971, they
moved to a farm near Scio, OR.

Carol embraced the additional activities that living on a farm entailed
including driving tractor, managing rouging crews, and overseeing business
matters. Carl deeply appreciated her business skills as they tested various
crops including brassica seeds, alfalfa, corn, oats, and recently flax. He also
appreciated her tenacious spirit and problem solving ability: regularly he
would call out in passing, Come get me in the field, and she had to
figure out which field he was talking about.

Throughout her life Carol emphasized the value of education and personal
growth. Some of her interests included reading, gardening, rug hooking,
spinning, and her familys genealogy. She was involved with her community
through many organizations including Women for Agriculture, Scio and
Linn-Benton County Planning Commissions, and the Friends of the Scio Public
Library. She also participated in the Save the Covered Bridges
campaign. She enjoyed the company of many friends and was a 60 year Kappa Kappa
Gamma Alum and delighted in her weekly bridge foursome. She was an active
investment club member for over 30 years. Carol was a dedicated mother, wife,
and business partner on the farm. Her sensibility, knowledge and joy in being
with a broad diversity of people to share common interests and to encourage new
friendships, will be missed by all.

Carol is survived by her husband Carl, sons Nicholas Haugerud of Colfax, WA,
Erik Haugerud of Corvallis, OR and daughter Heidi Tyler, of Huntsville, AL. In
lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Leukemia Research at OSHU Foundation,
1121 S.W. Salmon St., Suite 100, Portland, OR 97205 or the Friends of the Scio
Public Library, P.O. Box 283, Scio, OR 97374. Please join us to celebrate her
life on August 24th at 3:00 p.m. at the Scio ZCBJ Hall.
