MONIQUE RUSSELL HABERKORN
Monique Russell Haberkorn, 93 years old, died of cardiac arrest on November 11,2005, at Scott and White Hospital, Temple, Texas. The last survivor of eight children of Clara Belle Dendy Russell and Thomas Jefferson Russell, Monique was bom on January ll, 1912, near De Leon, Comanche County, Texas. A lifelong resident of Texas, she graduated from Holding
Institute, Laredo, and attend A. and I. College (now Texas A. and M. University at Kingsville). During World War II, she worked in defense at the Naval Air Station, Corpus Christi.
Much of her life was spent in south Texas, but upon retirement over forty years ago, Monique and her husband Arnold Haberkorn moved to New Braunfels. People of New Braunfels rallied around them when their home was destroyed by the flood in April, 1972 and around Monique when Arnold Haberkorn died the following year. She campaigned for the Comal County Senior Citizen Center and volunteered for years in the Thrift Shop to raise money for the center. She enjoyed being politically active by serving as precinct chairman of the Democratic Party. For her contributions to the com-munity, Monique Russell Haberkorn received the Unsung Heroes Award in April, 2003.
Nearly a year ago she moved from New Braunfels to TYoy to be near her beloved niece, Andi Smith Gilliland, Andie’s husband Ronnie, and daughters, Jennifer and Megan Gilliland. Monique Haberkom’s other survivors include her beloved sister-in-law, Elvira Brieger Russell of New Braunfels; four nieces and nephews: Mack J. Worsham, Rita Binkley Worthy, and Mary Binkley Budd of San Antonio, and Robert R. Russell of New Braunfels; their children and grandchildren. Monique’s family and friends will miss her unique sense of humor, responsiveness to help others in time of need, and interest in current events. She willed her body to benefit medical research at the University of Texas School of Medicine, San Antonio. Anyone wishing to make a contribution in her memory may do so to the Comal County Senior Citizen Center Thrift Shop, 655 banda Street, New Braunfels or to the Democratic Party.
