In Memory of
Patricia Ann Hauglund

It is with great sadness that we share the loss of our dear Patricia Ann Hauglund (Lamoreaux), who passed through the veil to her eternal home on December 24, 2020.

Patricia was born October 16, 1956, in St. Anthony, Idaho.

She was preceded in death by her beloved parents, Orien and Hazel Lamoreaux, brother Don Lamoreaux, and brother-in-law Jeff Hiram.

She is survived by her husband Loren Hauglund, daughter Jessica Hendricks, sons Benjamin and Matthew Hauglund, granddaughter Raina Hendricks, grandson Ian Hendricks, brother Gene Lamoreaux, sisters Darliene Thompson, Betty Berry, and Sue Hiram, and many more beloved members of her extended family.

Patti spent much of her early years in Las Vegas, NV. She attended high schools in both Las Vegas and Tulsa, OK, and studied at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. She worked for many years as an insurance underwriter and later as an IT Documentation Manager with a major oil company.

In 1981, she was living in Tulsa when she met Loren at church on a bright Sunday morning and both knew almost immediately that the stars had aligned for their eternal happiness together. They were married for time and eternity on July 15, 1981, in the St. George, Utah, temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Bringing her the greatest joy she had ever known, her children Jessica, Ben and Matt were born respectively in 1983, 1986, and 1989. More joy followed with the birth of her grandchildren, Raina and Ian. She considered her beloved children and grandchildren to be gifts from God and she loved, taught and protected them throughout her life.

Serving many years in both teaching and leadership positions in our church, Patti loved to teach and share her love of life with the children and youth, influencing their lives with her gentle spirit and strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

She enjoyed talking and laughing with family and friends. She looked forward to family reunions, vacations and visits with loved ones.

Our hearts mourn but we are comforted by our testimony of the eternal nature of life and families. Patti would wish that our memories of her bring us smiles, fill our hearts with joyous anticipation for the sweet reunions that await us, and inspire us to be kind and loving towards one another.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic and to minimize the risk to family, friends, and loved ones, there will be no immediate formal services celebrating Patti’s life and the Savior’s plan of eternal salvation. But please find comfort, if you wish, by sharing your memories and experiences as the opportunity allows so that Patti’s legacy of love, joy and kindness to all will continue.

With loving regards,

The Hauglund Family

image1.jpeg There are times in this life where it seems we must do things almost too painful to be born, but bear them we do. Sitting down to write a bittersweet memory of your beautiful baby sister whose time of making memories is now finished, is one of those times. The sorrow is in the joy of it, remembering happier days, days filled with hope and laughter and beginnings, seeing Patty as she once was, vibrant, vital, filled with spirit, filled with life. Like with most of us, life slowly chips away from dreams as we move into reality, but all along the pathway are those moments of pure gold. Patti was a moment of pure gold for her family when she came to us – a cuddly little bundle with down on her ears, curly hair, legs kicking. It’s true that most memories are like old photographs, sepia, greying with time, but I remember vividly at 10 years old, sitting on my parents bed and holding her for the first time. It was magic. When we moved from Idaho to Henderson Nevada, she was about four, a precious beloved child. We loved swimming in our little backyard cinderblock pool, which fit her a lot better than it did us. But we still had fun together. It was also there she was hit by a car and rushed to the hospital, scaring us all, but was right as rain. We later moved to Las Vegas and went our way from there into the world.

But Patti? Patti should’ve been a zoologist, she loved animals, all of them, and spent several days at the hospital because she was so allergic to cats and just couldn’t leave them alone. She had a white rat she adored forever, and it had free reign of the house - until an unfortunate accident in the bedroom door. She was inconsolable. She also had a bunny that had full reign of the house until it was banished outside, it was spoiled and fat.

She spent time at college and I still have her letters tucked away, buried somewhere in our attic. She and Sue were the best buddies, helpful and caring of each other. I remember her most at Tulsa, because she often came and stayed with us in Missouri. She was such fun to be around and her sense of humor and timing always left people smiling and chuckling. Her great talent was putting people at ease instantly, and when she met Loren, their spirits just meshed, with the same personality, love and support for each other. Our daughter Kristie was a flower girl at their wedding, and she couldn’t stop talking about it. I remember when Jessica was born, when Ben was born, and when Matthew was born - her children were the nexus of her life, and then her grandchildren, and I know how proud she was of them.

She and Lauren moved first by our brother Gene in Ohio, and later to Texas, so far away, but when we talked we were still close, and enjoyed sharing our lives. We didn’t see one another often after that - at a reunion or two, at funerals. But I know we’ll see each other again. Patti was what might be referred to as a candle in the night: she had plenty of hard times and challenges, more than most, especially in these later years, but still she gave out a steady light and she managed to laugh about her circumstances, not to complain but to share. She brought joy to those around her with her beloved Loren by her side as her constant support. She should have had many more years, but I’m glad we had her as long as we did, and our world has dimmed because she has left it. We look forward to the time when we’ll all be together again. Now we hold her only in our hearts and minds, and the next time we see her she’ll be welcoming us to that new life the way we welcomed her to ours.

I remember serving with Patti in the Primary. She was wonderful with the children, always kind and loving. She taught and shared her love of the Savior and His gospel with them and was always kind and friendly to all. She will be missed.

It is with great sadness and heavy heart that Jim and I say goodbye, for a time, to my "baby sister", Patti (Patricia Ann Lamoreaux Haugland). I can still remember, as if it was just yesterday, that she was born, by caeserian section, in Ashton, Idaho. We were living just a "hop, stick, and away"---or just "a stone's throw" away from St. Anthony, Idaho at the time. I turned 13 yrs. old the day after she was born. She was such a beautiful baby, with dark, wavy hair and big, chocolate brown eyes that pulled you into her tiny little soul, and I was hooked! We all loved her so, and were fiercely protective of her, wherever she went.
When she was about four, our family moved to Henderson, Nevada. I was about 17, and a Junior at Basic High School. She
