Maria Ann Haar

Maria Ann Haar, 88, of Elk Creek, Missouri, passed away Sunday, April 5, 2015, in her sleep.

She was born February 14, 1927 to Pauline and Adolf Eberhard in Echterdingen, Germany.

She married Frederic M. Haar, of Kansas, on December 23, 1958 while he was serving in Germany with the U.S. Army. They moved to Elk Creek in the early 1960s. Maria was a city girl, but a hard worker. She adapted to life on the farm and grew to love it. Fred and Maria dairy farmed for 17 years and they became an inseparable team. Their home was always open, and she enjoyed baking and cooking for the many friends and family that visited.

Maria was a lifelong faithful member of New Apostolic Church. She loved her church, her dogs, and the farm.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Fred, and three siblings, Freda, Fritz, and Emma.

Maria will be dearly missed by her niece, Eleanore Schmidhauser and nephew, Roland Walz (both in Germany), church members, and many friends.

Graveside services were held at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 8, 2015, at Longview Mission Cemetery near Elk Creek with Rev. Randy Schmeerbauch officiating. Interment was under the direction of Elliott-Gentry-Carder Funeral Home of Cabool, Missouri.
