We were all so blessed to have Sharon in our family! Even though we didn't get to see her as often because of distance, I always loved it when we had a big family event and heard Sharon would be there. She was such a bright shining light and her genuine love and concern for others was so heartfelt. And her laughter was so contagious!
I loved how she always remembered and sent flowers for my Mom and Dad's birthdays,and how she always remembered details about our lives. SHe had a special connection with my daughter Kelsey and it was mutual.
Sharon will be missed so much but we will keep her light and love in our hearts forever.
Sharon and I were a team in Student Services at Whatcom community college.
I was one of the first employees, and I think she joined me not too long after!
My memory is a bit foggy, but it's been awhile!)
It is sad to hear that she is no longer with us.
Sharon was a good person to work with, we always had good laughs together. She will be forever in our hearts.
Sharon: your light, laughter, and goodwill having touched the lives of so many continues to live. Your memory is with us forever.
I am honored to have had Sharon as a friend for almost 50 years. All who knew her will remember her laugh and great smile. She was a good communicator; sharing her opinion or organizing Halloween parties, stuffing hundreds of Easter baskets, or arranging social groups ( movies, books, cards, WCC retires). She enjoyed travel, plays, dancing, and people. She loved to read and learn. I will think of her every time I watch Jeopardy. My condolences and prayers go out to Mike, their puppies and her family. She'll be greatly missed.
I knew Sharon through my childhood friend Mike. Before Mike moved to Bellingham after his military service in the early seventies, we did a lot of things together such as camping, surfing and just hanging out in Southern California. But I knew when Mike met Sharon up there in Bellingham he wasn't coming back. She was his everything and much more. When I went up to visit them in the late seventies and met Sharon I could see the connection that they had. Sharon had this contagious laugh that wanted you to keep saying things that were funny to keep her laughing. I will miss seeing my old friend Mike with his Sharon, but I will always have those memories of them together.
I am so sorry to hear of Sharon's sudden passing. I remember so fondly the years of fun and friendship we shared. She will be missed and my deepest sympathies go to Mike and the family.
Sharon and I were a part of a large group hired at WCC in 1975. I was one of the lucky recipients of her Easter baskets each year. People usually drift apart after retirement, but not when Sharon was involved. She gathered us regularly, not to be the center of attention, but to let us enjoy our history, our present, and our hopes for the future. It is hard to imagine life without Sharon.
Sharon was one of the most good humored and plain spoken people I knew at WCC. She didn't just hole up in the business office but was a welcome part of our social events and life at the school. After retirement she graciously organized breakfast events for us retirees, and always had good stories to share. We will certainly miss her, and our sympathies go out to Mike.
