Brenda J. Harstad, age 55, of Northfield, passed away Monday, December 31, 2018, at her home.

Brenda was born the daughter of Fred and Florence (Marrone) Steward on June 29, 1963, at St. Johns Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota. There she was raised and graduated from high school. She lived in Zimmerman, California and in Lonsdale. She worked for Mala Strana in New Prague and at Three Links Care in Northfield.

Brenda enjoyed simple pleasures; being a devoted mother, chatting with friends and family, making candles, feeding the ducks, but mostly spending time with her grandchildren. Brenda will be remembered by her uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and positive way, and her everlasting longing to help others. Brenda opened her heart and her home to many people over the years.

She is survived by her children Charles Eckl of New Prague; Karissa Eckl of Shakopee; Sara (Jeff) Workman of Annandale; Joe Eckl of St. Paul; proud grandmother of 13 grandchildren; and two sisters Gail McDermott and Laura Steward both of St. Paul. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Brian.

Family, Friends, and others whose lives Brenda has touched are invited to a memorial service held on Saturday, January 19th, beginning at 2:00 PM in the Three Links Care Center chapel with lunch to follow in the community room at the apartments. There will be a time for friends and family to gather one hour prior to the service.
