Lasting Memories

Emma Grace Haus
Dec. 4, 2001-March 28, 2017
Pleasanton, California

Emma Grace Haus passed from our world on Tuesday, March 28th 2017. A Celebration of Life will be held at 4:00pm on Monday, April 17th at CrossWinds Church in Livermore California. The services are open to all who Emma touched in her lifetime.

Emma Grace came into the world December 4, 2001 in Arizona, the beloved daughter of Rich and Katlyn Haus of Pleasanton, California. As a freshman at Amador Valley High School, she played on the girls Water Polo team -- wearing her favorite number -- the #7 cap. She was enormously curious and adventurous. She had a love for learning, and constantly asked questions and explored the world around her. She was frequently the one to lead the charge for a project, an adventure or a cause to help others. She had a passion for the outdoors and spent some of her best times backpacking, rock-climbing and riding her horse. Emma’s greatest aspiration was to play Water Polo at Stanford and become a pediatric neurosurgeon: combining her love for others and passions for science and learning.

Emma was an old soul and very deep thinker who challenged herself to learn and experience life to its fullest. She had a huge heart and was always kind to everyone she knew and loved helping others. She will be remembered for her fierce loyalty, love and dedication to her siblings, family and friends. Emma Grace will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.

She was the kind of young woman anyone would be proud to call daughter, granddaughter, and friend. Emma is survived by her father, Richard, her mother Katlyn, her beloved siblings Abigail and Gavin, and her mother’s fiancé Paul, all of Pleasanton. She also leaves her maternal grandparents, Loretta and Ed Dutra and John Hallum, and paternal grandparents Arnold and Karen Haus and Wendy Roberts and Bob Presley. Several loving aunts, uncles and cousins as well as a host of close friends and family, also survive her.

In lieu of flowers please consider a gift to a charity of your choice in her name. She loved science, medicine and helping others in need around the world. Friends of the family have also established a GoFundMe account to support future charitable projects and scholarships in Emma’s memory, continuing her passion for helping others.
