Marian Haugstad

Marian Haugstad, Sioux Falls, SD, died November 26, 2015, at Good Samaritan Village. She was 94 years old.

Marian Lorraine (Slaman) Haugstad was born December 8, 1920 in Lennox, SD, to LaMont and Jennie (Struck) Slaman. She moved with her family to Sioux Falls in 1927. Marian graduated from Washington Senior High School in 1938.

On January 18, 1944, Marian married Kenneth Swaney. She worked for JC Penney as an office clerk.

Marian was united in marriage to Donald Haugstad on June 6, 1962, in Sioux Falls. Shortly thereafter, she began working at Montgomery Ward as a payroll clerk. Years later in 1978, Marian worked at School Bus, Inc., and the Bergland Senior Center. Don preceded her in death on December 12, 1987. Marian retired in 1995, and continued working part-time as a volunteer with Meals-on-Wheels, and AARP. In her free-time, she enjoyed making rugs, working cross-word puzzles, and reading.

Marian dedicated her life to her children. Kind and generous, she sacrificed much to the benefit of others. Blessed with a loving and faithful spirit, she would always put the needs of others before her own.

Grateful for having shared her life are her sons, Harold Swaney and his wife, Sandra, De Smet, SD; Ron Haugstad and his wife, Cindy, Sioux Falls, SD; daughter, Lori Hofer and her husband, Jeff, of Hot Springs, SD; nine grandchildren; seventeen great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren. In addition to Donald, she was preceded in death by a grandson, Kenneth; great-grandson, Justin; two sisters, Violet and Eva; and her parents.
