Karren Marie Peterson Haskell, our Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Niece, Daughter, Wife and Friend, returned to her Heavenly Father, on Tuesday, July 12th, at home with her husband at the age of 58.
She was born the third of five children, in Nephi, Utah on March 16, 1953, to Stanley Junior and Colleen Smith Peterson. She spent most of her life in Payson, and graduated from Payson High School and L.D.S. Seminary. She was a member of the L.D.S. Church and believed strongly in Priesthood blessings.
She married the love of her life, Craig Haskell, in the Provo L.D.S. Temple, on September 8th 1972. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and aunt up until her health declined at which time she struggled to do all that she had done in earlier years, but her love for her family and friends never changed. During those good times, there was not a better wife, mother or grandmother. When her kid's friends would come over she became a young child with them. They all loved her and wanted to be in her home. She also was a cat lover and there never was a time in her married life that she didn't have a cat in the house, which she loved immensely.
She was a stay at home Mom in later years, but had worked at the Fritzi sewing plant in Spanish Fork, Utah and for the Division of Family and Child Services in Orem. After obtaining her Certified Nursing Assistant degree, worked at Country View Manor in Provo.
During her husband's military deployment to Iraq in 2004, there was not a better support system than what Marie gave to him. She never let on about what was really going on at home, but she was stalwart in her support of him and his job there. No wife gave better support to their husband than what Marie did during that time.
She was precede in death by her parents, both sets of grandparents, and her sister Tracy, whose death she never fully got over. She is survived by her husband, Craig, her children Jennifer (Chet) Reynolds, Salem, Wade (Brynn) Haskell, Payson, Matthew (Nikki) Haskell, Payson and Chelsey (Jared) Hone, Santaquin, seven grandchildren, Wyatt, Whitley, Macy, Ty, Mallie, Jericho and Haize, 3 brothers, Randall Peterson and Douglas (Carol) Peterson, Payson, and Jeffrey Chugger (Mary) Peterson, Redmond, Father and Mother in-law Ivan and DeLowa Haskell, Payson, nephews Ryan Mikesell and Callie Mikesell, Payson and Kris Mikesell, Montana, brothers and sisters in-law, Jeffrey (Aldean) Haskell, Idaho, Betty Ann (Bill) Murray, Rose Park, Steven (Karen) Haskell and Sandy (Joe) Dinkins, Salem, her Aunt Donna (Don) Nelson, Salt Lake City, many nieces and nephews, and her cat Lizzie.
