Obituary for Marva Beth Haase

Marva Beth Haase of Sevierville, TN passed away at University of Tennessee Medical Center on Thursday, November 30, 2017 at the age of 78. Born on Christmas Day 1938 in Jacksonville, TX to Jim and Magdalene Leverett, she was the oldest of three girls. Growing up, she attended several schools in the southwest due to her father’s work, but easily made friends everywhere she went.

After working as an Executive Secretary to several CEO’s in the Long Beach area, where she also taught ballroom dance at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio, she moved with her family to Dugway, UT. There she met the love of her life, who she married after only knowing him less than a month. Their love lasted 50 years until his death in 2013.

She spent her life in service to others, nurturing her family and volunteering at her children’s schools, her church and the local hospital. When not volunteering, she loved playing Bridge, working crossword puzzles in ink, and she was always up for any trivia game, especially if it involved movies or music. Her love of music knew no bounds and crossed all genres – a love she passed on to her children.

Marva is preceded to Heaven by her husband, Otto F Haase Jr, her mother and father, and her sister Wanda Alford.

She will be dearly missed by her children Susan Reller (David) and Michael Haase (Ellen); grandchildren Stephanie Haase, Samantha Haase, Nicholas Dempersmier, Jacob Reller (Misty Ford) and Jessica Reller (Corey Goins); her sister Joyce Gonzales (Dennis); sisters-in-law Edith Reed and Della Ranker; cousin Annie Bryson; several nieces and nephews; and of course, her sweet Kylie.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial gift in her name to Small Breed Rescue of East Tennessee from where she adopted her precious Kylie, who was such a joy and comfort to her in her last years.

The family will receive friends 4-6 PM Thursday, December 7 at Atchley Funeral Home, Sevierville, TN. Graveside services will be held on a later date, where she will be laid to rest next to her husband at Rock Island National Cemetery in Illinois. Online condolences may be made at
