Janna Jeannette “Netty” Straub passed away on June 20, 2019, at her home in Powell.
She was born May 21, 1933, to Peter Rol and Hindriktje Hidding in the Netherlands.
In 1952, she wed Jeip “Paul” de Haan. During this marriage, they had three children.
In 1962, after answering an ad on a whim for a baker in the United States, she and her family moved to Billings, Montana. From there, they relocated to Powell in 1968, where they opened and ran the Powell bakery for many years.
In 1975, she met and married Lynn Straub. They enjoyed 36 wonderful years together until Lynn’s passing in 2011.
Netty loved to crochet and knit, blessing her family with many handmade keepsakes. She also enjoyed reading and collecting glass baskets.
Netty was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Lynn, daughter-in-law Deborah de Haan and grandson Zachary de Haan.
She is survived by her children Henny (David) Newton of Ross, North Dakota; Pete (Kathy) de Haan of Powell; and Rudy de Haan, also of Powell; grandchildren Greg Kern, Derrick de Haan, Lacee Hooper, Christy Tharp, Jessy Watts, and Rudy de Haan. Netty also had many great-grandchildren whom she loved as well.
Netty was laid to rest next to Lynn Saturday afternoon in a private ceremony at Crown Hill Cemetery.
