Tina passed away Friday, Jan. 27, 2023, at her home in Perry, Iowa.

Tina Louise Sass was born July 28, 1971, in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, the daughter of William Francis and Theresa Louise (Kersey) Sass.

She grew up and attended schools in Perry and graduated with the class of 1989 from Perry High School.

Tina loved her family and was a very busy mom, usually working two jobs and coaching soccer when the kids were growing up.

She enjoyed cooking, but all knew that her kitchen was her kitchen (My kitchen, my rules!)

She had a special liking for Iowa Hawkeye sports, gnomes, reading, bookkeeping and working at the Elks Club.

Tina married Gregory A. Haglund on July 15, 2017, at the First Christian Church in Perry.

Tina and Greg loved to go camping, motorcycling and spending time with friends. She was a devoted tractor rider with Greg when the farming needed attended to, and she didn’t like missing trips on the tow truck and went along whenever she could.

Tina is survived by her husband, Greg Haglund of Perry; mother, Theresa Sass of Perry; two sons, Brandon Henry of Altoona and Andrew Henry of Ankeny; brothers, Josh Sass of Perry and Matt (Kristen) Sass of Perry; sisters, Lori (Chad) Matthaidess of Park View, Iowa, and Samantha (Joe) Jarosz of Rancho Gordo, California; mother-in-law, Maureen (Verle) Haglund of Perry; father-in-law, David Hemphill of Austin, Texas; grandmother-in-law, Mavis Struyk of Perry; sister-in-law, Mollie (Curtis) Clark of Yale; brother-in-law, Jeff Haglund of Perry; aunts; uncles; nieces; nephews; cousins; and friends.

Preceding Tina in death were her grandparents; her father, William “Bill” Sass in 2004; two uncles; and one aunt.
