Jane Glenn Haas, an iconic columnist and reporter for the Orange
, wore many hats during her career: journalist, feminist,
author, TV host, theater lover, inspiring public speaker and founder of
WomanSage, an organization promoting the potential of women in midlife
and beyond. But she will be remembered above all as a superachiever who
never ran out of ideas or the enthusiasm to bring them to life.
Haas died at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday from complications after a stroke. She was 75.
