The youngest of three daughters, she grew up on the farm homesteaded in 1852 by her Grandparents in Crabtree. Nancy attended Crabtree Elementary school and Albany Union High School before attending Oregon State College and receiving her Bachelor's degree in Home Economics as a member of the class of 1958. She married Arthur Haas on August 17 1958 and became a Home Economics teacher at Tillamook High school. In 1963 She and Arthur adopted the first of two boys they would raise as their own and in 1965 adopted the second.

They moved to Tigard, Oregon in 1966 where she taught Home- economics at Tuality Jr. High while working toward her Master of Education degree at Portland State University. After receiving her Master's degree, Nancy worked in counseling at Aloha High school and then West Linn High school, finishing her career at Cedar Oak Elementary school before retiring. Nancy knew she wanted to be a teacher from her earliest memory and never considered any other career.

Nancy continued to have a roll in education in retirement by administering standardized testing across the state for several years. She participated in the Partners of the Americas program where students and teachers travel between Oregon and Cost Rica eventually becoming the president of the Oregon chapter of Partners of the Americas. She hosted exchange teachers from Costa Rica, Japan, and Australia in her home, treating each one like part of the family, and maintaining close ties to many of them for years after.

She was a member of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority at Oregon State and kept active connections with her sorority sisters for the rest of her life. She was an active member of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas and delighted in the activities of the organization.

Nancy is survived by her two sons Brian and Daniel.

Nancy will be laid to rest at Providence Cemetery in Scio, OR on October 11, 2021 with her husband Art, near her parents, grand-parents, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
