    I always admired Sharon’s ability to speak boldly, and always give her honest opinion. She always took time to visit and genuinely listen to what you had to say. I will miss her.

  3. Santa Clarita CAAunt Sharon was a favored aunt for Scott and the rest of her sister Pat’s kids, being close enough in age to be an older playmate/companion. It’s been a rough go for her the last several years. Our belief is that her sufferings have ended for her, and for that we rejoice with her. For the family, we share in your grief, and remember what a good person Aunt Sharon was, feeling grateful for the time that we did get to share with her. You will remain in our thoughts and prayers.

She was s great professional and it showed and, while doing a complicated and difficult job, she made sure people and morale were never sacrificed. She created a positive team spirit and was a someone one remembers very fondly. With every warm and caring wish for a sad loss.
