ANGELA MAE HAASE
March 6, 1968 – August 4, 2022
It is with great sadness that the family of Angela Hasse née Goodman announces her peaceful passing with her family by her side on August 4, 2022, at the age of 54 years.
Angela will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by her children Calvin and Aaron, her parents, Doug and Louise Goodman, her siblings Stacey Webster (Jarret), Derek Goodman (Dawn), and nieces and nephews Joshua, Reece, Nicholas, Conner, Bridgette, Grace and Great Niece Alexa and Great Nephew Lukas. Her many cousins, Godchildren, and close friends will also miss Angela.
Angela was born in Thompson but raised in Winnipeg and Calgary. Angela graduated High School in Winnipeg and then attended Red River Community College. After college, she moved to Vancouver to work as a CAD designer before heading back to Thompson to start a career with Inco (Vale) that spanned 31 years.
Angela started her career as a designer with Inco in the engineering department in 1991. She transferred to the Information Technology department in 2010 to work as an IT Business partner. According to Angela's coworkers, she had an excellent understanding of the mining business and how the power of technology could improve mining safety and production. Angela was never afraid to roll up her sleeves and tackle any job. She was always optimistic and focused on positive results. She was known to say, "every problem has a solution.".
Angela fell in love with her hometown and the North. She picked out her piece of paradise on Liz Lake, and with the help of her Dad, they designed and built her dream home. Her boys grew up in the house she created, and they took advantage of all that nature had to offer.
Angela was also involved in the community. She joined the weekly Hash Run and played Ringette in the early days. Later volunteering her time on the Paint Lake Cottage Owners Association and Thompson Minor Hockey Association as both Calvin and Aaron played hockey. Angela loved music, there was always music playing in the house. She enjoyed countless concerts and festivals. Concerts were something that Shelley and Angela enjoyed doing together.
Angela also loved to travel and had many adventures with her friends and boys. Angela loved her camper checking out new campgrounds, especially with extended family. Another one of her favorite things to do was her annual canoe trip with the Canoe Sisters. What happened on the trip stayed on the trip, so no stories to tell. Floating off her dock in her piece of the lake had to be one of her top favorite things. She and her friends and family could spend hours out there.
Angela was an excellent mother. She was fiercely independent and very brave. She raised her boys to be strong, kind young men and was immensely proud of them. Angela held onto her convictions and could be strong-willed at times but never unkind. She was hardworking and always caring for others. Proof of this are the many friends she has gained over the years; she will be greatly missed.
Angela did not lose her battle with cancer; you cannot lose something you can never win. There is nothing Angela set out to do that she did not succeed at; she simply ran out of time.
A Celebration of Life will follow at a later date. In the meantime, Angela's family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by watching the photo-biography above.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
