  • Note: American glider pilots, along with airborne forces, spearheaded all the major invasions, landing behind enemy lines in their unarmed gliders in Sicily, Normandy, Southern France, Holland, Bastogne, Rhine Crossing, Luzon in the Philippines, and Burma. One veteran American glider pilot painted a vivid picture of the stark terror they experienced. "Imagine", he said, "flying a motorless, fabric-covered CG-4A glider, violently bouncing and jerking on a 11/16 inch thick nylon rope 350 feet back of the C-47 tow plane. You see the nervous glider infantrymen behind you, some vomiting, many in prayer, as you hedge-hop along at tree-top level instinctively jumping up in your seat every time you hear bullets and flak tearing through the glider. You try not to think about the explosives aboard. It's like flying a stick of dynamite through the gates of Hell." There were only about 6,000 American military glider pilots, all volunteers. They proudly wore the silver wings with the letter "G" superimposed on them. The brash, high-spirited pilots were not a bit bashful about letting everyone know that the "G" stood for "Guts".

Lovila was also a Ladies Auxiliary member of the Mishicot VFW Kempen-Staudinger-Terens Post 7753.

    Lovila was blessed with a wonderful marriage of 63 years to Franklin Haese, who preceded her in death on Feb. 4, 2010. Sadly, Lovila lost two sons, Paul and Richard Haese and a son-in-law, Dennis Theyerl.

    Lovila is further survived by 17 grandchildren and their families (including 20 great-grandchildren): Randy and Leanne (Eis) Kahler, Tim and Paula (Eis) Long, Jeff and Kristin Eis, Chris and Missy Eis.

    The family would like to express its heartfelt appreciation to the entire staff at Northland Lodge for providing exceptional care to both Lovila and Franklin over the years. Northland Lodge easily became an extended family to the entire Haese family. Special thanks, also, to Jackie and Rachel of Southern Care Hospice.
