Marvel Vonnie (Johnson) Haas age 80 of Canby, MN peacefully entered the gates of Heaven on Thursday, January 24, 2019 in Sioux Falls, SD surrounded by her family. Funeral Service will be 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Canby, MN. Burial will be at the Canby City Cemetery in Canby, MN. Visitation will be from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. with a 7:00 p.m. Prayer Service on Monday, January 28, 2019 at the Houseman Funeral Home, Birk Chapel in Canby, MN.

Her story starts on August 14, 1938 in Oshkosh Township. She was the only daughter of John Johnson and Evelyn (Lueders) Johnson/Dahl. She was baptized at St. Stephens, Canby and received her first communion and was confirmed at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Canby. On April 23, 1954, she married Leo Haas in Canby, MN to this union three children, Sheila, Wanda, Terry, were born.

She enjoyed running Smitty’s pool hall and visiting with friends while playing pool and her favorite card games especially Wist. She was a devoted homemaker until 1992 when her husband Leo passed away. After his passing she went on to get her GED and started her career at Sanford in Canby, MN until her retirement in 2014. In her early years she loved to go fishing with her husband Leo. Marvel was an avid Twins fan and loved watching her grandchildren and great grandchildren in their activities; she was their biggest fan. Shopping with her daughter, Wanda, was always something she looked forward to. She was very heartbroken when her favorite store Herberger’s closed down. Marvel would never miss an episode of, Wheel of Fortune or Young and the Restless. Her family was her pride and joy, she would do anything for them; “Family was forever always, no matter what.”

Keeping her memory alive are her children, Wanda Winter and Terry (Karol) Haas; fourteen grandchildren, Jamie (Lisa) Lokken, Melissa (Keith) Helgeson, Ron Jr. (Angela) Winter, Jody (Shaun) Vernlund, Doug (Julie) Winter, Jennifer (Jesse) Engesmoe, Tammy (Nathan) Johnson, Kelly (Steve) Gagnon, Markeela (Matt) Toreen, Lacie (Keith) Petersen, Chaske (Tasha) Faulk, Brittany (Jarrett) Pridal, Chelsea (Jamie) Mosier and Shonteera Haas; thirty-four great-grandchildren, Shauna (Preston), Emma & Alexa Vernlund, Blake & Ashton Helgeson, Chantz, Evan & Rona Engesmoe, Avery & Hailey Lokken, Courtney, Andrew & Abbie Winter, Gwyneth, Ian & Lucy Winter, Bailey & Aleah Johnson, Easton Gagnon, Eliana, Jaxton, Emerly & Henley Petersen, Kyra, Keagan, Sophie & Addie Toreen. Silis, Rodriek, Ryder & Baby Girl Faulk, Briella Pridal, Owen & Baby Girl Mosier; and her best friend Lucy Hansen.

She was welcomed into heaven by her parents; her husband, Leo Haas; her daughter, Sheila Lokken; son-in-law, Sheldon Lokken; son-in-law, Ron Winter Sr.; and great-granddaughters, Elizabeth Lokken & Braylee Pridal.

Blessed be her memory.
