Anna Mae Haskamp, age 90 of Sauk Centre, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2023, at the CentraCare Care Center in Sauk Centre.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Sauk Centre with Rev. Mark Botzet officiating. Interment will be in the parish cemetery.

Visitation will be held from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. Feb. 4 at the church.

Anna Mae was born May 9, 1932, in Sauk Centre to Michael and Rose (Mayers) Essler.  She graduated in 1949 from Sauk Centre High School. On May 11, 1954, she was united in marriage to Ervin Haskamp at St. Anthony’s Church in Padua, and were married until Ervin passed away unexpectedly at age 62.  Anna Mae worked for St. Michael’s Hospital, Northwestern Bell, Skogmo and DHIA.

She was an active member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Christian Mothers, American Legion Auxiliary, Carpetts Line Dancing Group and many card groups. Anna Mae loved traveling to other countries and her trips to Mission, Texas. Anna Mae enjoyed her kids and grandkids, sharing how to bake, cook and play cards and games, as well as her good sense of humor. The hardest thing is watching somebody you love forget the family she loved. We thank those of you who helped support our mom and her family during this journey.

Those who shared in her life include her children, Carol (Rick) Jones, Deborah (Mark) Sutherland and John (Carrie) Haskamp; seven grandchildren, Kristy (Rick) Barhorst, Katie Huesman, Brianna (fiancé, Matt), Beau (Morgan), Jake, Dylan and Kelsey; five great-grandchildren, Hallie, Derrick, twins Sophia and Hunter, and Brock; sisters-in-law, Betty Breitbach, Irene Haskamp and Myrna Essler; brother-in-law, Julian Haskamp; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Anna Mae was preceded in death by her husband, Ervin; parents; in-laws, Henry and Emma; brothers and sisters, Henry, Alois, Felix and Don Essler, Veronica “Fronie” Ripka, Kathryn Gruber-Borgman, Rose Walker, Marie Welters and Yvonne Ahles; grandson-in-law, Nicholas “Nick” Huesman; and many in-laws and friends.

Thank you to the staff at CentraCare Care Center for the excellent care and kindness shown to our mom.

Arrangements were made with Patton-Schad Funeral and Cremation Services of Sauk Centre.
