Cleone Campbell Post Hageman

Much of my political perspective is due to this woman.

April 29, 1921 - June 17, 2007

Cleone Campbell Post Hageman passed peacefully, Sunday June 17, 2007 at the age of 86 in Southington, CT.
Born April 29, 1921 in Albany, NY Cleone was the eldest daughter of Cleone (Rich) and C. W. Post. She was predeceased by both her brothers Benjamin F. and Richard Post and sister Nancy M. Lange.

Cleone graduated from Albany Academy for Girls and continued her studies at Alfred University in New York State. At Alfred, Cleone studied Ceramic Art. It was there where she met and married L. Coulson Hageman, in 1942. The couple was happily married for 47 years until Coulson passed in 1989.
During those 47 years Cleone and Coulson lived in the Berkshires, Cape Cod, Ohio, Pennsylvania and for many decades in Colorado.

Cleone was a trained artist who had a love for creating, and invested her talents into landscape design and custom home projects. In the Denver metro market, she enjoyed a career as well in retail sportswear where she excelled. Cleone was a member of both the DAR and the Society of Mayflower Descendants.

In 2004 Cleone relocated to Southington, CT to share more time with her family.
Cleone is survived by her children: Douglas C. Hageman (Gail) of Southington CT and namesake, Cleone C. H. Johns of Las Vegas NV, and was predeceased by daughter Nancy S. Flibotte. (Donald R.) She is also survived by grandchildren Christine Bullard (Jay), Susanna Petrovich (Timothy), Mark Johns, Coulson Hageman and two great-grandchildren, Katrina, Luke Petrovich, and daughter-in-law Carol Hageman, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Cleone will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know and love her.

A memorial service is scheduled in Berlin, CT at Bethany Covenant Church at 11:00 o‘clock on Saturday, June 30. The family will receive friends at 10:00 at the church.

Interment will be in Hyannis Mass at a private ceremony. In lieu of flowers, friends may donate in her memory to the Bethany Covenant Church Scholarship Fund or Friendship #33 AF & AM (Freemasons) in Southington, CT

The family wishes to extend their deepest and heartfelt thanks to the caregivers at Farmington Care Nursing Home for the splendid care and attention provided to Cleone for the past year.


  1. My sympathies on your loss, brother.
