Liselotte "Oma" Haf 1913 ~ 2010 We Celebrate You Today and Always ~

The services for Liselotte "Oma" Haf are being held today the 26th of May 2010 at the El Camino Memorial Park here in San Diego at 1:00 P.M.  Deacon Bob Ekhamel officiating.

Oma was born  on the 19th of December 1913 and passed away in Augsburg, Germany,  on the 5th of April 2010.  Our family will be celebrating her life of 96 years and keeping her memory alive always. Oma was preceded in death by her husband, my grandfather, Adalbert Haf (1907 - 1968) and her two twin sons, my uncles, Helmut Haf (1940 - 1994) and Adalbert Haf (1940 - 2004). 
Her service will be a small Urn burial...but huge in our hearts.
Oma lived a long and fulfilling life...she will be so missed, we love you Oma.

Mom returned from Germany on April 15th, 2010 after having a beautiful mass and service for Oma in the Catholic Church I was baptized in, St. George's Church in Augsburg, Germany, where the Mozart Family had been connected for a long time.

Oma was cremated in Germany, her ashes were finally received last week by the El Camino Memorial Funeral home...Oma is finally home and at her final resting place, very close to me where we can spend as much time with her as we would like.  Oma had visited us here in the U.S. many times and loved it here. Her wishes were that this be where she would rest in peace...

I am sending out a huge Thank you to all of  my wonderful genea-friends, for your kinds words, love and are the best.
