Nettie was born in Michaelsfeldt, Bessaarabia, Russia near the Black Sea. She was baptized in the Lutheran Church in Michaeldfeldt as an infant.  Nettie was born to William and Margaret Adolf. At the age of 6 months, Nettie and her mother along with four of her siblings arrived at Galveston, Texas in 1908. They were detained at the port in Galveston due to her older sister, Margaret’s, eye infection for 3 months. They traveled by train to Bethune, Colorado where they united with her father and other siblings who arrived several months earlier.  Nettie lived and grew to adulthood in the Settlement Community attending Prairie View School and the German School at Immanuel Lutheran Church were she was confirmed.  As a young woman she helped neighbors, cooking and cleaning and caring for their children when a mother was ill or needed help. She married Jacob C. “Jake” Hasart at Immanuel Lutheran Church on April 27, 1927. She moved to the Hasart Farm 12 miles northeast of Stratton, Colorado. There, her children were born, Gerald, born in 1928, and died at the age of 6 days, Jim born in 1929 and Virginia born in 1932.

Nettie was a very hard worker helping her husband by picking corn, shocking feed, helping with harvest, cooking meals for harvest crews, raising chickens and turkeys, milking cows and other chores. She was a great cook and housekeeper and loved to crochet, embroidery and later in her life making quilts for family and friends and for charity with her women’s group at church.  Jake and Nettie moved to Burlington, in June of 1954 and transferred their church membership to First St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. Many winters were spent in Phoenix, Arizona area with friends from Nebraska and Colorado. Jake passed away in 1976.  After she was widowed she spent many days and evenings playing cards and games with friends. She was a member of RSVP and active in their kitchen band and helped hand quilt many quilts. In 1996 she moved to the Legacy as one of its first residents. In June of 2000, after breaking her hip she was admitted to Grace Manor Care Center where she lived the last seven years.
