Harriet Hughes Naser passed away on April 14, 2012 after a brief illness. She was the daughter of Mary E. and C.I. Hughes of New Castle and Pittsburgh. Mrs. Naser was born in 1920 in New Castle, Pennsylvania. After graduating from Grove City College, she married M. Jack Naser and began a 30-year teaching career in business education with the Penn Hills School District. During this time she received her Master's Degree from the University of Pittsburgh. She was a lifetime member of NEA, and a member of ESEA and the Pennsylvania State Education Society. Mrs. Naser was a sister in PEO and the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1978 she retired to Sugarmill Woods in Hornosassa Springs, Florida, eventually splitting her time between Florida and Foxburg, Pennsylvania. Anyone who was acquainted with Mrs. Naser knew she had abiding interests in dancing, bridge and golf. Her real love, though, was people. From high school students to college graduates to members of her community, Mrs. Naser was avid in her support and admiration of the people surrounding her. She was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, M. Jack Naser, and her daughter of two years, Mollie Pamela Naser. Mrs. Naser is survived by one sister, Marian Hughes Call, of Gastonia, North Carolina, five nieces, five nephews and their families. A celebration of her life will be held on May 20 at 1:00 p.m. at Harbison Chapel on the campus of Grove City College. In lieu of flowers the family asks that contributions be made in her memory to the M. Jack Naser and Harriet Hughes Naser Scholarship fund at Grove City College, 100 Campus Drive, Grove City, PA 16127. Contributions may also be sent to the Senior Independence Hospice, 1815 W. Market St., Akron, Ohio, 44313, whose staff gave loving care to Mrs. Naser in the last month.
