Annette was born December 31, 1930 and passed on February 19, 2020. She will forever be missed by her family. Annette was a very energetic and active woman her entire life up until the last three weeks of her life when she diagnosed with cancer at the age of 89. She was always busy going to her cabin at Showers Pass and previously Ruth Lake, riding her horses, maintaining her immaculate yard, taking her dog for walks, cooking breakfast for the neighbors and family on Sunday mornings. Always having fresh baked cookies or the best apple pies. She was always quick witted and had a funny line to respond to any situation or anyone, good or bad. The family she leaves behind is thankful she was our mother, grandmother and Great Grandmother, Aunt and special friend.

Annette was predeceased by her husband Roy Hauger until his passing in 1998. Together they raised two children, son Roy J. Hauger and daughter Tawny (Hauger) Mitchell and her husband Craig of Rathdrum, Idaho. She leaves behind her five grandchildren, Shannon Leonardo and his wife Amy of Fortuna, granddaughter Devon Ewing and husband Aaron of Tracy, Jody Scott and husband Eddie of San Ramon, Rogan Hauger of Phoenix Arizona and Jeffery Osborne of Eureka. Her great grandchildren Shaun and Ava Leonardo, Mason Osborne, Hunter, Jonas and Tatum Smith, Elizabeth Ewing. She also leaves behind her beloved dog and buddy Scooter.

Special thanks to her caregivers for all the love and support they gave, Diane Bonomini her niece, Randy Eckhart and Leah Rosa. Thank you to Frye’s Care Home and Hospice for caring for her, you all were a shining star. We the children of Annette thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
