Sharron spent her free time curling and having many laughs with her amazing friends. She was a recipient of the Matheson Award in 1997 (Volunteer Award). Sharron was a caring and loving woman, who always made sure everyone was taken care of before herself. She welcomed everyone and anyone into her life and home at any time including holidays. Sharron was a special lady who made sure everyone felt special in her presence. She was loved and will be missed by all.

In memory of Sharron a memorial donation may be made to The Terry Fox Foundation, 2669 Shaughnessy Street Port Coquitlam, BC V3C 3G7.
