September 13, 1928 – October 28, 2022

Alice May Hafner (Hauber) passed away peacefully on Oct. 28, 2022. She was the oldest of 9 children born to Alvina and Charles Hauber. Alice graduated from Mount Mary College, Milwaukee WI in 1953. It was in Wisconsin that she met the love of her life, Rollie Hafner. They lived in Wisconsin, then the Denver area, and eventually settled in Glenwood Springs. Alice was very strong in her Catholic faith and was a long-time member of St. Stephen’s Catholic Church. She volunteered for many years as a greeter at Valley View Hospital and was a regular at the Glenwood Hot Springs pool. She was a member of the Wednesday Wanderers hiking group and quite proud that, well into her 80’s, she climbed Ms. Sopris and hiked to Hanging Lake with her friends and son.
Alice loved to make cards with pressed flowers she collected and was known for baking bread and cookies to give to friends. She will be greatly missed. Alice was proceeded in death by her husband, Rollie, and her parents Alvina and Charles Hauber. She is survived by her son, Patrick Hafner of CA, brothers Charles Hauber of FL, Richard Hauber of IN, Edward Hauber of MT, John Hauber of IL, Robert Hauber (Char) of UT, Gerald Hauber (Patty) of Pueblo, CO, Timothy Hauber (Judy) of IN, sister Patricia Tharp of IN and many nieces, nephews and friends.
A funeral mass and internment took place in Valpariso, IN on Nov. 12, 2022. A Rosary service will take place at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Glenwood Springs on Nov. 20, 2022 at 3:30 p.m. All of Alice’s friends are welcome to join in this celebration of her life.
