Laura M Hauger
March 5 1930 - June 7 2011

This online memorial was created in loving memory of Laura Hauger, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign Laura's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Laura forever.

Laura Hauger was born in Detroit, MI to her parents Edward and Loretta(Dunn) Dicker on March 5th, 1930.  She was eighth in a line of nine children and lost both her parents by the age of ten.  Her oldest sister Ruth stepped in and helped raise the younger children through their school years and Laura credited her with instilling in her a love of music and the written word that she continued through her life as well as a strong work ethic.

To put her self through X-ray school, she worked as a sales associate at Sears. She frugally saved money by drinking only water with the lunches she brought from home and walking to work both ways up hill instead of taking the bus.(this according to what she told her kids)

After graduating from school as a Certified Radiological Technologist she was then  employed at Port Huron Hospital.  The hospital was involved in doing a lot of work for the U.S. Army and in the course of events Laura met and married a handsome Army Private named Paul Hauger who would soon be shipped over to Germany.  Laura made her own way to Germany to be with her new husband after living for a time near the Army base in Kentucky.  She decided to leave Kentucky after being accosted by giant cockroaches and felt even the uncertainty of moving across the ocean to a new country was better than being carried away by large ugly bugs.  While in Germany she lived with a German family in a small rented room that she paid for with two pounds of coffee from the Army PX and she also worked part time as a civilian X-ray tech on the base. 

After a year in Germany Paul and Laura moved back to Detroit Michigan to begin their civilian life together. Laura continued to work as an X-ray technician while Paul received his degree as a CPA and began work in an accounting firm in downtown Detroit. As usually happens, along came children. First a wonderful daughter named Linda and then a son Jonathan who was the holy terror of Baldwin Ave. After his birth they decided that two children were enough. In 1960 the family moved to the suburbs of East Detroit and Laura dedicated herself to becoming a full time housewife and mother and was very active with the children and the PTA.

1967 brought an opportunity for Paul to work for the Midwest Abrasive Company in Owosso. This is where the family moved "up north" to become part of the country club scene and Laura gained her love of the game of golf.

1974 Linda their oldest child left for college and the rest of the family moved to Sterling Heights when Paul received an offer to become President of a company in Warren. They refused to tell Linda where they had moved for two months and then relented allowing her to come visit for the holidays. She was not amused. Due to the stress of another move and other factors Laura and Paul divorced in 1977 soon after Jonathan graduated from High School.

Laura had a rough start to her single life getting back into the work place after so many years. However, she had kept up her X-ray certification and was soon employed full time at the clinic in Macomb county. To make ends meet she also received training in massage therapy and the Bonnie Prudence School of Acupressure Therapy. Upon completing her courses she worked out of home to help many people with their pain and other health concerns. She also researched tirelessly on the methods of homeopathic medications. She loved helping others feel better and became lifelong friends with many of the people she helped. A visit to Laura's house usually involved being given some small white homeopathic pills to take or a bolo in your back to relieve whatever ails you. Even the dog next door was given weekly pain erasure treatments which she loved as well as the Popsicle or cheese treat afterwords. Human patients received a smile, a hug and her undying friendship.

Laura did everything to its fullest be it work, volunteering or just fun. When she wasn't working she volunteered in many community projects and causes. She mentored teens and adults in AL-A-TEEN and AL-A-NON. She helped out at the women's shelter in Macomb county and tirelessly worked to improve women's rights even marching to Washington with the National Organization for Women (NOW). In Sterling Heights she worked with the Library on their literacy projects even going into the Macomb County jail teaching inmates to improve their reading skills. In later years she found joy and many friends working with the library's English as a second language program helping our foreign speaking citizens to improve their English language skills to get better jobs.

She also was involved in several community choirs, golf leagues, and senior centers where she loved to play pool and ping-pong. She was a staunch advocate for recycling and reusing anything she could to save the environment. Laura delighted in rewashing plastic bags and in her collection of twist ties. You knew she really loved you if she sent you home with a baggie of twist ties. 

In her spare time Laura volunteered on her condominium's board of directors serving both as President and Vice- President for over 25 years. During her tenure she planted many trees and installed carports to improve the condos. She also started the tradition of stickering parking violators. A tradition that is held up to this day. Laura prided herself in being the longest living home owner in Sterling II and elected to stay in her home in Hospice care until the day she died. She died near the neighbors she loved with family and friends near by.

Laura was a wonderful Mother and Grandmother, a friend to many and an asset to the community and she will be truly missed.
