Haritos, Evelyn B. (5 Apr. 1918 - 21 Jan. 2009)

Evelyn "Lynn" B. Haritos, 90, of La Crosse died Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2009, at Alterra Clare Bridge Cottage.

She was born in Chippewa Falls, Wis., on April 5, 1918, to Carl and Aagoth (Bushland) Stenseth. She graduated from Owen High School, where she was salutatorian of her graduating class. On Jan. 19, 1941, she was married to Trifon "Trif" E. Haritos at St. Katherine’s Episcopal Church in Owen, Wis., by the Rev. Ronald Ortmeyer. Trif preceded her in death on Aug. 2, 2007. After living in Florida for 15 years, Trif and Lynn moved back to La Crosse ten years ago.

Lynn was a longtime faithful member of Christ Episcopal Church in La Crosse. She organized the Episcopal Church women’s groups, served on the altar guild and managed the flower fund for many years. She also managed preparation of "The Belfry," the monthly church newsletter, for many years.

Lynn volunteered at Franciscan Skemp Medical Center for several years before the move to Florida.

Lynn is survived by two sisters, Marguerite (Norbert) Heldt of Roseville, Minn., and Ruth Lofthus of Palm Springs, Calif.; and two nephews and one niece, James (Carol) Heldt, Norman Lofthus, Jr. and Kristine (Steven) Chambers.

A service celebrating Lynn’s life will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Christ Episcopal Church in La Crosse. The Rev. Patrick Augustine will officiate. A reception will follow in the church undercroft. Burial will take place in Oak Grove Cemetery. Friends may call from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. Wednesday at the church. Memorials may be directed to Christ Episcopal Church. Schumacher-Kish Funeral Home of La Crosse is assisting with arrangements.
