Elfriede "Elfie" Haf Haf-Serafin
Birth: Mar. 21, 1933
Bavaria (Bayern), Germany
Death: Jul. 21, 2010
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Elfriede, my beautiful Mom, passed away on July 21st, 2010 from a massive stroke. She lived in San Bernadino County and passed in Torrance, CA, while visiting friends.

Elfriede was born and raised in Augsburg, Germany. In 1957, she immigrated to the United States and started a new life in Monterey, CA. Elfriede's first job in 1957, was at the Bear Flag Restaurant located within the historic Cannery Row in Monterey CA - (

When her job ended at the Bear Flag Restaurant, mom started her career at Montgomery Wards in Monterey, CA. She started out as a sales girl in the Woman's Fashion Dept. Later, she was transferred to the San Jose downtown store and went on to be the first woman to become a District Merchandise Manager in the history of Montgomery Wards. She continued to climb the ladder to a Corporate Regional Executive Manager's position and was very successful up until her retirement 35 years later. Elfriede leaves behind many close friends and co-workers from her career at Montgomery Wards.

She is survived by her daughter, Virginia 'Gini' Webb, son-in-law Steve Webb and granddaughter, Lacie, great-granddaughter Emma, and great-grandson Ethan, her niece, Marion Haf Markou and sister-in-law, Gitta Haf and cousin, Inge Kaiser Kaps.

In death, she is reunited with her mom, Liselotte Haf née Kaiser-Saule (1913-2010), her twin brothers, Helmut (1940-1994) and Adalbert (1940-2004) Haf and her father, Adalbert Haf (1907-1968).

She is deeply missed, loved eternally and her memory is kept alive each and everyday.

~ Rest In Peace my beautiful Mom ~
