Fifty year resident of La Jolla, Harriet Northfield Stasik, transitioned from this world on August 2, 2013. She arrived in this world on January 20, 1924, to twenty below zero weather in Minneapolis, MN. |
After graduating from the University of Minnesota in early childhood education, she taught kindergarten for 38 years until her retirement in 1991. For 25 of those years she taught at Marie Curie School in University City.
Upon retirement she became an active volunteer with the Assistance League of Greater San Diego and enjoyed working many hours at the Bargain Box and forming wonderful friendships.
She is survived by her two daughters, Barbara (Herb) Kwan and Marge (Norm) Dodge; her granddaughter, Michelle (Brian) Carter; two great-granddaughters, Bethany and Abigail; and the many who called her Grandma Harriet.
A private family celebration will be held in November.
