Kathryn L. Hague

Blue Earth Kathryn Loraine Hague, age 92, of Blue Earth, died Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2012, at United Hospital in Blue Earth.

Funeral Services will be held Monday, Sept. 17, 2012, at 11 a.m. at Patton Funeral Home & Cremation Service with Rev. Vic Vriesen officiating. Visitation time was from 4-6 p.m. on Sunday, and one hour prior to services on Monday at Patton Funeral Home in Blue Earth.

Kathryn Loraine Southers was born Feb. 9, 1920, to Roy and Leona (Washburn) Southers in Trenton, Mo. She attended No Creek school in Grundy County, Mo. She moved to Blue Earth in 1936. She was united in marriage to Howard E. Hague on Dec. 24, 1938 in Blue Earth. The couple shared 56 years of marriage here in Blue Earth until Howard’s passing in 1995.

Kathryn was a homemaker, raising eight children along with all the bookkeeping for her husband’s business Hague’s Tractor Repair. Chores started early for her, cooking three meals a day from scratch, washing clothes to hang out to dry, then ironing, baking, tending a large garden and canning just to name a few. Her children all enjoyed her homemade pancakes fresh off the griddle with warmed butter and syrup along with many other favorites. She was quite a cook. We will all miss her welcoming smile, her listening ear and her loving patient heart.

Kathryn is survived by her sons, Larry (JoAnne) Hague, of Worthington, Russell Hague, of Fairmont, Steven (Patty) Hague, of Blue Earth, and John (Shellee) Hague, of Mankato; her daughters, Patricia (Jack) Samuels, of St. Joseph, Mo., Betty Lou Hagedorn, of Ely, Lois (Gayle) Ensrud, of Frost, and Wanda (Alan) Gieser, of Blue Earth; sister, Garnett Arnold, of Minnetonka; sister-in-law, Ilene Southers, of Trenton, Mo.; brothers-in-law, Robert Hague, of Fulton, Mo., Gerald (Berniece) Hague and Burley Don (Marie) Hague, of Moberly,?Mo; special family friend, Barbara Hague, of Columbia, Mo.; 12 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Howard; sisters, Opal (Chet) Garriott, Pearl (Harold) Brice, Hazel (John) Williams, and Helen Schwartz; brothers, Charles (Ruth) Southers and Edgar Southers; son-in-law, Ronald Hagedorn; two grandchildren, Terry Lee Samuels and Kimberly Jo Hagedorn; brothers-in-law, John Arnold, Wade (Ruth) Hague, Darrell Hague, Denver Hague, and Calvin (Oceola) Hague; sisters-in-law, Lucy (Chester) Simmerman, Edna (Richard) Palmer, Trieva (Art) Simmerman, and Thelma (Herman) Boettcher.
