SHARPSVILLE, Pennsylvania (MyValleyTributes) – Jean Marie Hauger, age 77, of Sharpsville, entered eternal rest on Wednesday, August 18, 2021 at UPMC Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she donated her organs.
Jean was born on May 6, 1944 in Sharon, Pennsylvania. She was the daughter of the late Francis and Bertha (Wilhelm) Herrmann.
Jean was a faithful member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Sharon, Pennsylvania.
She was a devoted high school business teacher, retired from Kennedy Catholic High School, Badger High School and West Middlesex High School. Over the many years that she was teaching, she coached several different sports including golf, basketball, softball and cross country.
Jean loved to golf, after retiring she golfed in four leagues a week. She oversaw the Over 45 women’s golf tournament at Buhl Park for 25 years. During the winter months she bowled in two bowling leagues. She was a past President of ABWA, once being named woman of the year and also was an active member of Mercer County Women’s Association.
Jean never met an animal that she did not try to bring home, many of them she did over the years. She adopted or rescued 20 dogs and several cats. When Jean arrived in Heaven, there were too many past pets to name waiting for her.
