Stasia Ann (Schick) Craig, 89, of North Dartmouth, passed away peacefully while surrounded by family on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 after a long illness. She was the beloved wife of James M. Craig for 67 years.

Born in New Bedford, Stasia worked as a clerk for the Dartmouth Conservation Commission, as well as the Secretary to the Principal at two New Bedford area elementary schools--Casmir Pulaski and Phillips Avenue--retiring from the latter in 1995.

Stasia was a charter member of the Ladies' Guild at St. Julie Billiart Church. She was proud of her Polish heritage, which influenced her lifelong passion for cooking and baking. She also enjoyed nature walks, gardening, dancing, animals, and gazing at beautiful flowers. But above all, Stasia cherished family gatherings and celebrating special times together.

In addition to her husband, survivors include a daughter, Susan E. Craig of North Dartmouth; two sons, James J. Craig of Fairhaven and Jeffrey D. Craig of Riverside, RI; and two grandchildren, Justine M. Alves and Christopher C. Alves.

Family and friends are invited to her Funeral Mass on Monday, May 8, 2017 at 11 a.m. in St. Julie Billiart Church, 494 Slocum Rd., North Dartmouth, followed by a private burial in the Massachusetts National Cemetery, Bourne. No calling hours will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the American Diabetes Association, 260 Cochituate Rd. #200, Framingham, MA 01701.
