In memory of
LILA ANN (HAUGE) LEE
Lee, Lila Ann (Hauge), 80, of Costa Mesa, California, our beloved mother, sister, grandmother and friend, passed on January 8, 2017 from a surprisingly advanced lung cancer. Into her last days and hours, she carried on with all the tenacity and gusto, that we all knew and admired in her. Born in Los Angeles, October 9, 1936, she enjoyed most of her life in the Newport Beach/Costa Mesa area. Through her varied career, she worked as a Bookkeeper, Corporate Executive, Performing Artist Manager, Commercial Real Estate Appraiser, and Pari-Mutuel clerk at Los Alamitos and other Southern California horseracing tracks. A 1958 graduate of UCLA, she was a 1956 initiate of Alpha Psi chapter of the Alpha Chi Omega Sorority. Celebrating her Norse heritage, Lila was active in the Sons of Norway, including serving as president of the San Clemente lodge during the 1980's. She is survived by her sister, Ellen Hauge Harshbarger; brother, Robert Hauge of Las Vegas, Nevada; son, Quinton (Karla) of Indianapolis, Indiana; daughter, Cindy Ashmead (Tom) of Somerset, California; and grandchildren, Joel Ashmead, Cherilyn (Ashmead) Neider, Sierra Ashmead, Eric Ashmead, Krystlyn Lee, Cheré Ashmead, and Victoria Lee.
