Hasz, Lois J. (18 March 1927 - 22 June 2015)

Lois J. Hasz, 88, of rural Granton entered the eternal embrace of her loving Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Monday morning, June 22, 2015. Lois was born March 18, 1927, to Charles and Doris (Davis) Schwanebeck in the Town of Sherwood in Clark County.

At St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Sherwood, Lois was born again through the waters of Holy Baptism and later was confirmed in the Lutheran faith - a faith that sustained her throughout her life. Lois was a 1945 graduate of Neillsville High School. May 1, 1948, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Lois married the love of her life, Albert H. Hasz, after which she farmed with Albert until August 1991. Together Lois and Albert had four boys and were married 60 years.

Lois loved her rural upbringing and the life with Albert on the farm. They made many, many happy memories working together and raising their family on the farm. She loved being around and caring for the farm animals and especially loved cooking for her family, as she was known as a superb cook and baker. Throughout her life, Lois loved vegetable gardening, tending her many flowerbeds, as well as preserving much of the produce from her garden; she passed many of these skills on to her children and grandchildren. Lois also loved sewing and especially sewing “crazy” quilts for Lutheran World Relief.

After retiring from farming with Albert, Lois used her skills and creativity as a baker to craft and sell outstanding wedding cakes. She was loved for her skills at making special themed birthday cakes for her grandchildren and others. Lois also became cook and an active member of the Granton Rotary Club, where she earned the prestigious Paul Harris Fellowship award for service to her community.

Lois was an active member in her local church congregation, Zion Lutheran Church, in the ladies Aid and the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. Lois was also a lifetime member of the Granton FFA Alumni, as well as a member of the Granton Rotary and Senior Citizens organizations. She and Albert were also life-time members of the Southern Clark County Sportsman’s Club. Lois loved to play cards at the clubhouse, now the Granton Community Center.

Lois is survived by her children: Roger (Dawn) Hasz of Granton, Leroy (Marcia) Hasz of Chili, Thomas (Theresa) Hasz of Granton, and Darryl (Justine) Hasz of Wisconsin Rapids; grandchildren: Christopher (Stacy) Hasz, Melissa (Nate) Hilliard, Patricia Hasz, Nathaniel Hasz, Justin Hasz, Erin Hasz, Taylor Hasz, Matthew (Shelly) Hasz, Brandon Hasz, and Hannah Hasz; great-grandchild, Emmalin Hasz; and sister, Joyce (Herb) Zickert.

Lois was preceded in death by husband, Albert; parents, Charles and Doris; sister, Nona; and brothers: Ivan and Wayne.

Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Friday, June 26, 2015, at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, W2880 Granton Road, in Granton. Pastor Daniel Schoessow officiated. Caroline Helm, organist, provided music. Visitation was from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, June 25, 2015 at the Hansen-Schilling Funeral Home, 1010 E. Veterans Parkway, in Marshfield, and one hour prior to the service at church Friday. Interment was in Zion Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery in Granton.

The casket bearers were her grandchildren.

The Hasz family thanks the nurses, doctors and staff at the palliative Care Unit of Ministry St. Joseph’s Hospital for their care during Lois’ short stay there.
