She is also survived by her beloved and devoted sister, Lorene Williams of Moccasin; brothers Marlin Haker of Stanford, Myron and wife Betty Haker of Hobson; a sister-in-law, Betty Haker of Great Falls; and numerous nieces and nephews.

      She was preceded in death by her husband, Orla in 1974; a son, Gerald in 1965; a daughter-in-law, JoAnn Worm Dester in 1987; sisters Margaret, Mildred and Loretta; and a brother, Vernon.

      She was born March 23, 1910, in Groton, S.D. Her parents, Herman and Elizabeth (Denzin) Haker and children moved to Stanford in 1918.

She was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Stanford and in her last years, enjoyed listening to and visiting with Pastor Weishoff and was grateful for all the taped sermons he brought her every week and his visiting.
