After a lengthy illness, Cheryle ("Cherry") Haugen, 85, of Rochester passed away at her home on October 2, 2021. She was born November 4, 1935 in Cannon City Township, Rice County, Minnesota to Rueben and Mamie (Ryder) Schwert. She graduated from Faribault, Minnesota High School in 1953 and briefly attended Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. On November 28, 1954 she married Duane W. Haugen in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Cheryle was passionate about reading, history, and her family, which she combined in an extensive interest in genealogy and tracing the family history back to the Mayflower. She was active in several community organizations, served a variety of volunteer roles, and was a long-time member of Bethany United Methodist Church and later Evangel United Methodist in Rochester. After raising four children she began a career planning and leading guided bus tours, and served as a tour escort and trip planner for Glenn's Motorcoach Tours of Rochester for over 25 years, guiding trips through all 50 states, Canada, and several foreign countries. She escorted her last tour in 2020 when she was 84.

Cheryle is survived by her husband of more than 66 years, Duane, three sisters, Colleen (Martinson), Sharon (Cox), and Pam (Vohs), four children, David, Kim (Dan Gapinski), Heidi (Bruce Martell), and Gary (Lori Hallum), as well as 7 grandchildren (Megan, Kelli, Katie, Sarah, Ben, Emilee, and Jacqueline), 4 great grandchildren (Lacorion, LJ, Layla, and Isla), and nieces, nephews, and many special friends

Cheryle's family extends its sincerest gratitude and appreciation for the compassionate care that Cheryle received from Seasons' Hospice, Rochester Rehabilitation and Living Center, and the Mayo care team.

A funeral and memorial service are planned for 2:00 pm, Friday, October 8, 2021 at Evangel United Methodist Church, 2645 North Broadway, Rochester, Minnesota 55906.

Over the years, Cheryl has touched the lives of all of us and our customers. Her caring and loving presence has created special experiences that we will cherish forever. Her hard work and dedication to Glenn’s Motorcoach Tours has helped our Company become what it is today. Words cannot pay tribute or truly capture the sense of loss that we are all feeling. Cheryl was always there for anyone who needed her. So today we honor Cheryl, by expressing our loss but also remembering an amazing person who has played a unique and special role in all of our lives.

Renae & Fred, Marie, and Glenn's Motorcoach Tours Staff
