Obituary -- LaUna "Ticky" Hass 1928-2017

LaUna Hass (born Wrinkle) of Grant City, MO (formerly of Platte City, MO), was born October 2, 1928 in Preston, MO and passed peacefully on May 15, 2017 at the age of 88 after declining in health over the past year. She resided at Orilla’s Way of Grant City, MO where she was lovingly cared for and pampered.

Ticky (as she was known to all) was a formidable force and could be counted on to enliven any event. She is survived by her loving husband, Carl Hass, Jr., after being married for 39 years. In addition, she leaves a big family who will miss her dearly. They are: Barbara Hall (Dick) of Bella Vista, AR; Jeanie Claytor (Tim) of Kansas City, MO; Michelle Ross of Phoenix, AZ; and Ginger Skaggs (Jes) of Dearborn, MO as well as 12 grandchildren (one waiting to greet her in Heaven), nine great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, and many, many friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents (Liva and Alta Mae Wrinkle) and her three siblings: Berneta Walker, Hoyt Wrinkle and JR Wrinkle.

Ticky grew up in the Camden Point, MO area and attended school there. She went to the reunions faithfully every year. She worked hard all of her life at many jobs and hobbies using her skills in farming, sewing, cooking, gardening, wallpapering, school bus driving, antiquing and just plain manual labor. In 1966 she landed her dream job at TWA as a mechanic in the upholstery shop. After 23 years, she retired in 1989 leaving many memories and close friends. TWA allowed her extensive travel opportunities that she readily took advantage of with Las Vegas a favorite destination with Poker being her game of choice. She used her self-taught sewing skills throughout the years to sew or repair many boat cushions, pillows, curtains, etc.

Ticky was happiest when at the Lake of the Ozarks swimming, fishing, entertaining or just relaxing on the dock. She lived a full life and she would tell anyone to do the same. Savor every day, watch Wheel of Fortune, watch the Royals and Chiefs with passion, take a young one fishing, play video games; just LIVE! As she always said, “You’re not getting any younger!”

Visitation will be held 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 18, at the Camden Point Baptist Church.
Funeral will be Friday, May 19 at 2:00 p.m. at the same location.

Burial services will be at Camden Point Cemetery immediately following the funeral service.
In lieu of flowers, it is suggested donations to Children’s Mercy Hospital of Kansas City, MO or Mosaic Life Care Hospice of St. Joseph, MO (Stanberry, MO location).

Arrangements are through Hixson-Klein Funeral Homes and condolences may be made online at www.hkfuneralhome.com.
