Amy Joan Alsleben, 62, of Claremont, South Dakota, died Thursday, July 27, 2017, at her home.
Funeral services were held Monday, July 31, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Aberdeen, South Dakota, with the Revs. Samuel Bobby and Josiah J. Fitch officiating.

Amy Joan Haar, daughter of Roland and Marlene (Heyne) Haar, was born Feb. 14, 1955, at Mobridge, South Dakota. As a child, she lived with her family in Forbes, North Dakota, Watertown, South Dakota and then Bath, South Dakota. When she was a teenager, the family moved to Aberdeen, and she graduated from Central High School.
She worked as a waitress and a bartender in the Aberdeen area. She lived in New Auburn from 1978 to 2001. In 2001, she purchased the Claremont Café and operated it for a few years. She then returned to bartending.
She attended Lutheran churches and believed that Jesus Christ was her savior. She thoroughly enjoyed puzzles, board games and cribbage. She also liked gardening and fishing. She took the time to read her Bible and taught herself how to play the piano. In her younger years, she enjoyed dart leagues in Minnesota, and camping always made her happy. She had many fond memories of when her kids were small and they went camping.
Grateful for having shared her life are her children, Nicole Dunlavy of Aberdeen, Natalie (Matthew) Stuewe of New Auburn and Alex (Jennifer) Alsleben of Aberdeen; eight grandchildren, Dakota Boese, Spencer Dunlavy, Kaitlyn Dunlavy, Ashlyn Stuewe, Addisyn Stuewe, Quentin Stuewe, Owin Alsleben and Eldin Alsleben; father, Roland Haar of Aberdeen; four brothers, Rory (Kathy) Haar, Dean (Gaylene) Haar, Kary (LeaAnn) Haar and Paul (Jody) Haar, all of Aberdeen; and two sisters, Lisa (Glenn) Evenson of Humboldt, South Dakota, and Stacy (Chris) Serr of Aberdeen.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Marlene, on Nov. 27, 2015.
The family prefers memorials to Wylie Park, Storybook Land and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Sunday school.
