Linda Sue "Aunt Susie" Haas, 68, of Charleston, changed her address from Woodrums Lane to Heaven when she lost her battle with cancer on Saturday, November 26, 2016.
She was born on August 22, 1948 to the late George J. and Vaun Elizabeth Board Haas. She was a 1966 graduate of Dunbar high School and a 1970 graduate of Charleston Beauty Academy. She worked for 42 years as a hairdresser until her illness forced her to retire in 2013. Most of those years she worked for Janet Nelson at Janet's Beauty Salon in Dunbar. She and five of her "shop sisters" then moved to Our Gang Hair Care in Dunbar.
She was a lifelong member of Brown United Methodist Church where she held many offices beginning in her youth when she held different offices in the youth fellowship group. In her adult years she taught Sunday School Class, worked with the youth group as a leader, was Sunday School Secretary, held offices in the United Methodist Women's Group, served on various committees, was a member of the Administrative Council, Chairperson of the Trustees, chaired the committee for the church's 25th and 40th Anniversary Celebrations, was Membership Secretary and did the church's card ministry. Her church and church family were very special to her.
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her brother and sister-in-law, James H. and Patsy R. McCormick Haas, sisters and brothers-in-law, Mildred and Roy Sewell and Rosa Lee "Rosie" and Keith Painter.
She is survived by her sisters, Reva M. (Bob) Clark of Twinsburg, Ohio, Deborah J. Haas of Charleston and Donna J. Haas of Dunbar; nieces and nephews, Missy (Jimmie) Moles of Elkview, James H. Haas, Jr (Marian Vidas) of Cross Lanes, Kelly (Jim) Barnhart of Charleston, Vikki Haas of Dunbar, Stephanie Hess of Dunbar, Jay Painter of Cross Lanes, John (Terri) Painter of Cross Lanes, Jeanie (Terry) Voland of Ohio, Janet Horowitz of Ohio, Jerry (Jodi) Sewell of California and Terry Sewell of Georgia; she is survived by 14 great nieces and nephews and their spouses as well as 14 great-great nieces and nephews. She was called "Aunt Susie" by a great number of people, even those outside of her family. Sue is also survived by the "sister of her heart" her precious friend of 60 years, Brenda Casto whom she could not have made it through these past 3 and a half years without. Thank you so much for your love and giving selflessly of yourself to Susie.
According to her wishes she will be cremated. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 1:00 PM, Saturday, December 3, 2016 at Brown United Methodist Church, Woodrums Lane, Charleston with Rev. Earl Cochran officiating. Family and Friends may visit one hour prior to the service at the church and are invited to share in a reception in the basement of the church following the service.
In keeping with Susie's wishes, the family requests in lieu of flowers donations to be made in her memory to Hospice Care of Charleston, 1606 Kanawha Blvd., W, Charleston, WV 25387-2536. Susie always gave of herself to others and this is one way she can continue to give to others. Thank you for helping us to fulfill her final wishes.
