Harriet Martinson passed away peacefully at the Turlock Living Care Center on July 14, 2022. She was born to Harry and Emma Rasmussen on February 1, 1930. Her sister Ruth was born in 1931. Their father passed away in 1932. Her mother remarried in 1936 and had five more children to complete the family. After graduating from Little Falls High School, Harriet was employed by the Randall Minnesota Land O’Lakes Creamery where she met Richard (Dick) Martinson. They married in 1953. In 1959 their son Bradley was born. In 1962 the family relocated to Minneapolis, MN. Harriet worked as a church secretary. The church had a day care for handicapped children. She always had a heart for volunteering and would spend her lunch break helping feed the children. Her afternoons were spent visiting shut-ins.

Another move took them to Redwood City in 1977. Harriet worked for State Farm Insurance and then the Sequoia School District. Her dream job was working with her husband guiding a church senior citizen group. She introduced the California group to the Scandinavian tradition of Lucia Breakfast. It became so popular that two sittings were needed.

Another move took them to Turlock in 1988. Being unable to find employment in data entry, Harriet decided to be a volunteer at Emanual Hospital. She was a mail courier until 2016 when she stopped for health reasons. She also volunteered as an offering counter at church.
Harriet’s hobbies were reading, gardening, and preparing food in the church kitchen. She loved to visit shut-ins and drive them to the doctor.
She was preceded in death by her father Harry Hoffstedt, mother Emma Hegg, stepfather Roy Hegg, sister Ruth Borud, sister Jean Carey and brother Daniel Hegg.

She is survived by her husband Dick Martinson, son Bradley Martinson and wife Janice, sister Nancy Vander Linden, brother David Hegg and wife Darlene, and brother Darrell Hegg and wife Renee, and nieces and nephews.
Nothing was more important to her than serving God and loving her family.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
