Corrine was born on October 11, 1944 to Warren and Matilda (Drewlow) Priebe in Breckenridge, MN and grew up on a farmstead outside of Woverton, MN. While spending time in Breckenridge with friends, most likely Karen Kemp, she ran into an electrical student at Wahpeton’s State School of Science. That student was Ordean Haugen. On June 6, 1965 the two were married in Woverton and went on to have two children. After a few years of traveling for work, the couple settled in Mandan, ND in 1973 and made it their home ever since.
It is in Mandan where Corrine ran into the most fantastic group of people at Messiah Lutheran Church. She had so many friends within the church and loved spending time helping with potlucks, weddings, funerals, Bible study, and many other church activities. We always said if we wanted to get out of church and go out to eat, you better drag Mom or otherwise she would be gabbing away with everyone she could find. Her passion was church and the great women she built life-long relationships with, including those at the local Hardees coffee group.
Much of Corrine’s time was spent reading, going on drives looking for wildlife, fishing’ and most importantly raising two boys from home. She did spend some time working at part time jobs to fill time, but when she could, she traveled with Ordean to Wisconsin and Minnesota as he worked on various large projects. She loved traveling and had a great time traveling to Maine, Nova Scotia, and most importantly, to Arizona with great people, special sister-in-law, Kay and her husband, Jake.
She will forever be missed by friends and family who remember her for who she was before her diagnosis. A special thank you to the Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center and all the great people who took care of Corrine during her final year.
She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Ordean of Mandan; two sons David Haugen of Mandan, Darren (Debra) Haugen of Mandan; step daughter Sharon Haugen of Wahpeton, ND; three grandchildren, Dominic, Dayton, and BreAnna; a sister, Renee (Scott) Hootman of Eldora, Iowa; and brother, Dean (Debi) Priebe of Lincoln, ND.
She is preceded in death by her parents and very special sister, Carol Buth.
