“Arianna” Barbara Jean Haines
On December 13, 2021, “Arianna” Barbara Jean Haines passed away from natural causes in Vancouver, Washington.
“For his eye is on the sparrow, And I know, He watched over me.”
She was a wonderful wife and mother and loved singing, dancing, and adopting rescue dogs. She raised her daughters to be strong, independent women.
Arianna was born Barbara Jean Wilkie to the late Aldon and Jeannie Wilkie in Portland, Oregon. Her father was a professional baseball player, so she lived all over the United States, eventually settling in Newberg, Oregon. Barbara graduated from Newberg High School along with her twin brother, Arnold “Jack” Wilkie, in 1960. She attended Portland State University when she met her future husband, Teddy “Ted” Haines, on a blind date. They married in Corvallis, Oregon, in 1963 and were married 58 years at the time of her death. Arianna worked as a bookkeeper and an office manager before getting her real estate license in 1978.
Ted and Arianna became the principals in “Haines Real Estate” with her brother-in-law and sister-in-law in Longview, Washington. Ted and Arianna retired to Scottsdale and later Oro Valley, Arizona. Ted and Arianna eventually moved to Ridgefield, Washington, to be closer to their daughters, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Arianna is survived by her husband, Ted Haines, of Kelso, Washington, brother, Jack Wilkie of Happy Valley, Oregon, daughter, Wendi Steinbronn (Richard) of Camas, Washington, daughter, Kristi Haines of Vancouver, Washington, grandchildren, Amber Walters (Randall Ball) of Tumwater, Washington, Tara Housden (Bryan) of Chehalis, Washington, Christopher Steinbronn of Camas, Washington, and two great-grandchildren, Jackson Ball and Olivia Housden.
At her request, there will be no service. Instead of flowers, contributions to the Human Society of Southwest Washington (HSSW) in her memory would be appreciated.
