Katie Haven passed away on July 30, 2017, while in hospice care for the last several weeks if her life.
She was a valued 50-year American Association of University Women Laguna Beach Branch charter member, having come to Laguna Beach in 1967 with her husband Al who became the first principal of Top of the World Elementary School.
Haven was very active in the community and served as treasurer of the Branch and of the AAUW Laguna Beach Foundation during her busy career as an insurance officer at AON in Santa Ana.
Two daughters Lin and Laurie and son Scott graduated from Laguna Beach High School. They and her grandchildren and many great-grandchildren survive her.
Carrying out Haven’s wishes, donations may be made to the AAUW Laguna Beach Foundation Scholarship Fund in her memory. Send checks, made payable to AAUW-LBF, to Susan Kent, P.O. Box 219, Laguna Beach, Ca., 92652.
