LaVada Patsy Haupt, 89, of Odessa, passed away on Monday, June 22, 2020 at her residence. She was born September 5, 1930 in Runnels County, TX to the late Ollie (Cummings) and Henry Seals.

She married Ernest H. Haupt on April 20, 1949 and was a loving and devoted wife. LaVada worked as the supervisor for the Winter’s school cafeteria for 25 years. She loved the staff and children that came into her life throughout her years there. She moved to Odessa in 1985 to be closer to family and joined the Northside Senior Center. She was a proud member and rarely missed a day.

She loved to socialize with her longtime friends at the center. She enjoyed quilting, Avon, and spending time with family and friends. She always had a smile for everyone she met. LaVada was fiercely independent and beautifully strong willed. A devoted Lutheran, she loved Christ and was an example for Christian morals and faith.

Aunt Lavada was my sweet, funny, beautiful, and loving aunt. She was married to my Uncle Shorty Pants for 50 years. I use to see her quite often at their home in Winters while growing up. Aunt Lavada always had the prettiest and brightest beaded necklaces. She told me when I last saw her that she missed Ernest so much. Well I know they are dancing and laughing in heaven! I bet she is cooking Him up some wonderful meals and lots of desserts! I am so sorry for your loss. She was well loved by all that knew her! God Rest her soul. Genie

“Happy” is what we called her - she worked with my Granbillie at the school cafeteria. She always gave me the biggest hugs and when we had peanut butter cookies she would sneak me an extra and scoot me on just giggling. I loved her and she was so kind and loving. I am so sorry for your families loss - May God gift you each comfort and peace - love you Happy

Mrs. La Vada worked in the cafeteria when I started teaching in Winters in 1972. I had graduated from Winters in 1968 so I had been a student while she was there but now I was a teacher. She was always so kind to everyone but ruled that lunchroom with an iron hand. She was always making sure the kids had what they needed. I am so sorry for your loss!

My aunt LaVada was a strong and gentle lady and was like a mother to me. She loved going to the beauty shop every week to keep her appearance beautiful, and beautiful she was. As a child I spent a lot of time with her and my uncle and have many fond memories of them. She was a wonderful cook in the kitchen. She will be greatly missed. She was a wonderful aunt.

So sorry to hear about LaVada. Tammy, Kimberly , and I were just speaking about her and wondering how she was doing about a week ago. I have very fond memories of Aunt LaVada, sister to my then mother in law Ollie, and Aunt to my previous husband Michael.
