Maine Press-Herald
Carol A. Haas
devoted to social work, her family
FALMOUTH — Carol A. Haas, 69, died Friday of colon cancer at her home.
She was born and grew up in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, a daughter of Ruth Cohn Steinberg and Maurice Steinberg. She graduated from Cleveland Heights High School in 1948, from Simmons College in 1952 with a bachelor's degree in social sciences, and Columbia University's School of Social Work in 1954 with a master's in social work.
She was a committed social worker serving children and families over a 30-year career. She worked most recently in the Child Therapeutic Nursery, Division of Child Psychiatry, at Maine Medical Center and retired in 1994 after 17 years there. She helped train many social workers and medical residents over the years. Earlier, she worked in family service agencies and mental health centers in the Westchester and Rockland County areas of New York.
Mrs. Haas brought tremendous commitment to her work and community, and is remembered as a strong and kind advocate for children and parents. Her work reflected her commitment to social justice and to children, and her belief that kindness and empowerment are healing.
She married Walter M. Haas, a social worker, in 1954, bringing up two daughters in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y. They also shared many interests, and were early models for two-career families.
Mrs. Haas enjoyed time with her young children, teaching nursery school part time and leading a Girl Scout troop.
"Our house was full of kids and pets during our childhood," said her daughter, Catherine Haas. "It was a home to which the neighborhood seemed drawn. My mother's warmth and loyalty to friends and family are kind of legendary. She was a natural networker, and there was something about her, a kind of acceptance and presence."
She loved the outdoors, appreciating nature as a source of inspiration and activity. She loved the Adirondack Mountains, bringing her family to the same lakeside spot for some 20 consecutive summers. There, water sports, being in the woods, and enjoying the company of friends and family were central.
After moving to Maine in 1977 with her husband, the Haases discovered Sebago Lake where they purchased a camp.
"My mom loved Sebago, and for our children, it is a magical place where Grandma could swim and play for hours and outlast them in the water," Catherine Haas said. She enjoyed camping with her family, and her children remember many hours of nature inspired crafts and games.
"Her appreciation for birds and wildflowers, and nature's wisdom, is part of all of us," she added.
A devoted grandmother, Mrs. Haas enjoyed helping to care for four grandchildren, baby-sitting often and taking them to theater, dance performances and concerts regularly, as she did with her children.
She enjoyed many hobbies and interests. She played tennis regularly, walked outdoors, and was a longtime yoga enthusiast. A perpetual student, she participated in Elder Hostel programs around the country, enrolled in the USM Senior College as it evolved, enjoying classes, and had a very personal piece recently published in its "Senior Perspectives of Spirituality."
Mrs. Haas loved reading, and belonged to book and gourmet supper clubs, and a tennis group. She supported and attended local theater and art exhibits enthusiastically.
Since retiring in 1994, she and her husband enjoyed traveling together, visiting Europe, Russia, China and Mexico, and the southwestern United States.
She worked very hard for causes she believed in, and contributed time and resources regularly to efforts to protect the environment, to promote social justice, to protect choice for women and to support the arts.
Surviving are her husband of 46 years, Walter M. Haas of Falmouth; two daughters, Deborah Haas Wilson of Longmeadow, Mass., and Catherine Haas of South Portland; a brother, Robert Steinberg of Walkersville, Md., and four grandchildren.
There will be a memorial service in December. Arrangements are by Dolby Funeral Chapel, Windham.
