She was born in Chicago to the late Herbert H. and Kathryn E. Engelhard. She graduated from Evanston Township High School in 1954 and attended Northwestern University.
A courageous woman of great warmth and faith, she lived life with gusto and humor and never failed to end every phone conversation by telling those she loved how much she loved them.
Her husband Howard “Buck” Haines predeceased her. She was the mother of Kimberly Aultman Dobro (Richard) of Northbridge, Massachusetts, and Michael Stewart Aultman of West Palm Beach, grandmother of Megan Joyce Dobro Solis (Benjamin) of Leverett, Massachusetts, and Brandon Dobro of Medford, Massachusetts; great-grandmother of Arlo Solis; and sister of Constance Murray of Arlington Heights, Illinois. Her brother Herbert Engelhard, Jr. predeceased her.
At her request her body will be donated for the advancement of science. A Celebration of Life with immediate family will take place in the future.
