Emogene Monica Haugen

October 7, 1933 — October 4, 2022

Emogene Haugen, 88, Pocatello, passed peacefully to be with her Heavenly Father, surrounded by family and close friends October 4, 2022, following a brief illness.

Emogene was born October 7, 1933 in Mahnomen County, Minnesota, the youngest of her brothers and sisters. She spent her early childhood on the White Earth Ojibwe Reservation in Minnesota before moving to Vancouver, Washington at the age of 10. With the untimely death of her father, Emogene then moved to Battle Ground, Washington, where she lived with her sister. She graduated from Battle Ground High School in 1951. Emogene then went on to start her career with a secretarial position with Corders Auto. It was there that Emogene met, and later married her lifelong love, Alfred Haugen on February 25, 1952 and while living in Portland, Oregon, they started their family. The family moved several times, first to Sherwood, Oregon, and eventually settling in Newberg, Oregon, as she worked at positions with Tektronix and Adec.

While living in Newberg, Emogene took time to focus on her education and started training as a nurse, however, she shifted direction instead attending Bible college. She successfully graduated and was ordained as a minister. This experience she shared with her husband Alfred, as he also became a minister. She had an unwavering faith and devotion to her Lord. She would witness and pray for all who were in need. She was active with AGLOW Women’s Ministries, holding various offices including President. She also enjoyed being a chaplain for the women's jail on the reservation. Emogene further demonstrated her faith in opening her home to anyone who had need for support.

Emogene loved the outdoors. She cherished the many memories of camping, hiking, huckleberry picking, and especially trips to the Oregon coast. She enjoyed traveling; either to visit with friends and family, or exploring new places. Her and Alfred enjoyed an unexpected Hawaiian getaway that provided cherished memories for years to come.

As Alfred’s health began to fail, the couple moved to Pocatello, Idaho in order to be closer to their daughter. They have resided here since 2003. Emogene has developed many new friendships, and was active in the senior, faith and Shoshone-Bannock communities where she felt very welcomed.
