Gifts & Memorial Donations

Emil Haus was born January 16, 1924 in Germany, immigrating to the United States after World War II. He lived most of his life in Queens NY. In 1954 he married Elsie Maurer. The couple had three children, Karin, Doreen, and John. Emil was employed at a machine shop working ten hours a day for forty years to provide for the family he loved. In 1995, Emil and Elsie moved to Hendersonville, N.C. to live near their daughter Karin, and her children Kristal and Michelle who were the joy of their lives. They attended the Fletcher Seventh Day Adventist church. January 13, 2009 Elsie died at home in his arms. He never recovered from the loss of losing his best friend of fifty five years. His daughter, grandchildren, friends, and caregivers tried to fill the void to no avail.

Emil passed away on July 25, 2009 with his daughter, Karin and Kristal and Michelle with him. The last words he heard from his daughter was how much they loved him assuring him the family will be alright and we will look forward to meeting in heaven. With those words he opened his eyes and looked at his grand daughters then over at his daughter and took his last breath.

He will be greatly missed by his daughter Karin Haus and her husband Bob Rapp, and his grandchildren Kristal, her husband Shannon and Michelle. Memories that will not be forgotten include family camping trips to Virginia, playing board games, taking walks which Emil loved to do, going to the park, and teaching all the kids to ride their bikes. We would like to give special thanks to the residents and staff of our Carolina Village family for their compassion and kindness, along with the care givers who allowed him to remain at home.

The family will have a private memorial service at his daughterís home.

    Karin, So sorry to hear about your father's death. He was a good man and I'm sure he will be missed. Praying God will make His presence known to you in a special way. If there is anything I can do for you I am just a phone call away. May God bless you and give you peace. Cathy Wilkie

    Karin, you have been a light in Lorine and Bill Charlesworth's lives while Lorine was at Carolina Village. You are still one in Bill's eyes. We know you were a light in your own parent's eyes as well. We are very sorry for your family's loss of them both. Sincerely, Lewis & Sally Ruhf
