On Nov. 13, 2016 the Haumberger family expressed sorrowful goodbyes to "Mama," an exceptionally sweet lady whose infectious smile, heartfelt love and affection for everyone that knew her will be difficult to forget. Maria (Mitzi) Haumberger was born on Nov. 4, 1931, in Markt Neuhodis, Austria. She immigrated to America in 1955 with her husband Hans and their first born son, Hans Jr. settling in Oklahoma City, where their second son was born. In 1964 the family moved to Butte, Montana, where their third son was born. Mitzi lived a great life and family was everything to her. She tirelessly devoted herself to family events where she lovingly delighted us with her wonderful Austrian/Hungarian meals. During retirement Mitzi and Hans enjoyed RV trips to Arizona and made many new friends. Mitzi is survived by her husband of 64 years, Hans Sr., her sons Hans Jr. (Ellen), Jerry (Cynthia), Karl (Michelle), granddaughter Raquel, two sisters and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins in Austria, Chicago and Oklahoma. Remember Mitzi through donations to a food bank of your choice.
