Sandra Sue Haack was born February 8, 1945 to Dale and Florence (Fieldbinder) Hadfield in Sheldon, Iowa. She was a graduate of Sheldon High School and AIB Business School in Des Moines, Iowa.
Sandy married her high school sweetheart, Rich Haack, on December 27, 1964. One of the highlights of their early-married years was following Sandy’s idea to join the Peace Corps, serving in Nigeria for two years. Soon after, Sandy and Rich were blessed with the arrival of their two daughters, Susan and Nicole, whom they enjoyed raising on the family farm near Sheldon.
Sandy was a person of prayer, and loved being involved in her home church as well as reaching out to other women in her community. Her interests included Bible Studies, prayer times, encouraging others in their faith, and personal conversations with people over the phone or a cup of tea. She passed from this life on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at the age of 72.
Cherishing her memory, she is survived by her husband, Rich Haack; her two daughters: Susan and her husband, Todd Huesman, and Nicole and her husband, Kirk Sims; her three grandsons: Nicholas Huesman, Aidan Sims, and Eli Sims; her sister-in law, Donna (Don) Koepnick; other relatives and many friends.
Preceding her in death were her sisters: Joan Benz and Peggy Kuiper; her parents, Dale and Florence Hadfield; her in-laws, Nick and Effie Haack; and her sisters-in-law: Nella Mae Haack, Rebecca Thompson, and Barb Haack.
Sandy died as she lived, full of love for her Lord and for people.
In lieu of flowers, the family would request memorial monies be given
to the prayer ministry of Sheldon United Methodist Church.
