Gretchen Jeanne Haas, of Ellijay, GA, wife of Capt. Roger Haas, passed away
on 3 February 2017. Born in Memphis, TN in 1931, she was a graduate of
Sacred Heart High School. She served as a Reservations Agent for C&S
Airlines in St. Louis before moving to Atlanta to become a Ticket Agent with
Eastern Airlines at Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport. She married
Roger Allen Haas in 1962 and raised her two daughters in Atlanta before
moving to Ellijay in 1985 where she began a career in real estate on Walnut
Mountain. She was an avid tennis player, competing in the Atlanta Lawn
Tennis Association (ALTA) and an enthusiastic supporter of the Atlanta
Falcons. She was a great lover of dogs and enjoyed traveling with family and
friends, including a memorable trip to the Ice Hotel in Kiruna, Sweden.
She is survived by her husband, Roger A. Haas, and two daughters: Laura J.
Haas of New Orleans, LA and Linda C. Haas of Asheville, NC as well as a few
grand-puppies: Jake, Abiquiu, and Tilghman, too, as well as Amite, the tiny

Special thanks to the superb staff at the Gilmer Nursing Home and at
