Marjorie Lue Hauan was born Jan. 3, 1935 at the farm near Scarville, to parents Melvin and Elsie (Carlson) Peterson. She attended country schools near Roland, IA and Kiester, MN until graduating from Scarville High School.
After school, Marjorie worked many jobs to care for her family. She worked at Deluxe (Fleetgaard), Winnebago Industries, and Benson Quinn Commodities in the Twin Cities. For a long time, she was a nurse’s aide at Timely Mission Nursing Home, Buffalo Center, and at Good Samaritan Society, Albert Lea, Minn., where she would retire.
Marjorie enjoyed attending her children’s activities in her younger years. Marjorie was a lifelong member at Bethel Lutheran Church in Vinje, where she served in numerous roles. She liked collecting Department 56 collectables, and finding good deals at area rummage sales. Marjorie could be seen as sometimes stubborn and set in her ways (it was usually her way or the highway). Deep down, the reason behind all of that was to protect her family.
Marjorie is survived by her children: Mike Hauan (Robin), Violet Birk, Doug Hauan (significant other, Kim), Scott Hauan, Julie Hauan Domaille (Jack); grandchildren: Matt, Laurie, Joshua, Amber, and Andrew; several great-grandchildren; siblings: Eileen Sunde and Darris Peterson (Sue); as well as many extended relatives and friends.
She is preceded in death by both parents, Melvin and Elsie Peterson; son, Richard Hauan; son in-law, Tom Birk; granddaughter, Mandy Hauan; brother, Paul Peterson; and brother in-law, Duane Sunde.
