8/4/1943 ~ 7/29/2021

On July 29, 2021, we lost our beautiful mother Kate Ingegard Lindskog Hare.

Mom was born on August 4, 1943 in Ostersund, Sweden. One of her greatest accomplishments was gaining her citizenship of the United States of America on November 21st, 1969. We loved her story of how she flew by herself to the US when she was 16 years old.

Mom was married to Blaine Hare on August 26th, they would have celebrated 60 years of marriage, love, friendship and adventure this year. Mom and Dad got married after a whirlwind romance that started in Stanley, Idaho. One of our favorite memories as a family is when they took us girls back to their meeting spot. We heard the story that Dad knew she was the one he wanted to marry before she had even finished crossing the road. Read the rest of this entry »
