Victoria Elena Haugen passed away December 28th, 2019 at the Brendan House in Kalispell, Montana following a 5 month battle with lung cancer. Vicki was born in Ely, Nevada on November 16th, 1941. Her family moved to Plains, MT in 1948 where she attended school and graduated. It was there that she met Terry Haugen, her husband of 57 years.
They were married on July 27, 1962. They later moved to Libby in 1965 where they raised their 3 sons. During the years the boys were in school, Vicki worked and volunteered in the Libby School District. After the boys graduated, Terry's career in the lumber business took them to Underwood, WA, Jacksonville, FL, and Mobile, AL. They settled in retirement in Jacksonville, FL and Upper Thompson Lake near Happy's Inn, MT. Vicki was an active member in her Lutheran Church in Plains, Libby and Jacksonville where she and Terry both worked tirelessly at the Spirit of Life food pantry. Vicki was a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. In addition to spending time with her grandkids, family and friends, she enjoyed her plants and flowers, baking, fishing and traveling (it’s a long way from Florida to Montana, with many side trips).
She is preceded in death by her parents, Mark and Elaine Edwardton and her sister, Carol Ann Bartholomew. She is survived by her husband Terry, and her sons Steve (Kara), Kyle, Curtis (Bridget) and her grandchildren, twins Kennedy and Cassidy, Neva and Turner.
