Resident of Mill Valley, CA
Helen Hazard Haug, 75, passed away peacefully holding her husband's hand on November 16th, 2020 in Mill Valley after undergoing a valiant battle to treat B-cell Lymphoma cancer. She is now in God's hands.
Helen was born in Peekskill, New York on September 5th, 1945. Helen earned her MBA from Stanford in the early 70's. There is not one word that can describe Helen. As a senior executive in finance, she was highly intelligent, formidable, quick-witted and coveted excellence every day. She especially liked to mentor young women in developing their business careers with advice and guidance. She was wickedly funny, a great story teller, willing to share her insights, devoted, warm-hearted, generous, kind and both classy and classic at the same time. Helen enjoyed collecting art, gourmet cooking, and she was deeply devoted to the Catholic faith.
Helen was employed by General Electric and their subsidiaries for 28 years, and the McKesson Corporation for four years before retiring, due to multiple sclerosis.
Helen is preceded in death by her father, John Hazard, mother Helen and sister Jane. She is survived by her loving husband Dick. They were together for 27 years.
