Sharron Young

September 22, 1945 - May 17, 2017


It is with profound sadness we share the passing of Sharron at Powell River General Hospital. Left to cherish all of her memories and to carry her love in our hearts are devoted husband of 53 years Wayne, daughter Kim (Ernie), son Kevin (Debbie), grandchildren Jamie, Sydney (Callem), Sarah and Adam, sister Maureen (Bill), brothers Ernie (Kelly) and Rick (Lisa), as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives in BC, Alberta and Ontario. Sharron was predeceased by her mother Violet in 2002 and father Bill in 2008. Sharron was born in Edmonton, Alberta. In 1955, the family moved to Powell River where Sharron attended school and, after graduation, went on to work briefly at the Hudson Bay Company. Sharron met Wayne at Willingdon Beach in the summer of 1963 and was married the following year on May 1, 1964. They raised two children together. Sharron was a dedicated stay-at-home mom involved in all the children’s interests, such as softball, hockey, and baseball. When the children were older she went to work for Civil Liberties as a legal secretary until her retirement in 1991. When the grandchildren came, Sharron tirelessly encouraged and supported them in their individual talents, passing on her creative knowledge in crafts and various pursuits. Sharron was the heart of her family, worked hard at creating a loving home and spent many hours beautifying her garden. She had a creative spirit and unbelievable vision. Sharron also served in many volunteer positions, such as, Powell River Hospital Auxiliary and Alano Club of Powell River and president of Powell River Therapeutic Riding Association. Sharron enjoyed camping with her family every summer in various spots in BC, Alberta, across Canada to the Maritimes, and also down the coast to Disneyland. Sharron and Wayne made many trips to Las Vegas with friends to challenge the one-armed bandit. In 2007, she started adventuring to Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales with her sister Maureen, which was supposed to be a one-time adventure and blossomed into four trips. Sharron lived life with a great amount of humour and positivity. She was often heard quoting “this too shall pass.” She was truly a remarkable woman who handled her health challenges with quiet dignity and much courage. The family is deeply grateful for all of the medical professionals who assisted Sharron through her tribulations, including Doctor Dohm and her staff, Doctor Takhar, Doctor Hoffert, Doctor Uhlmann, Doctor Rossouw, Margie Woloschuk, laboratory staff, ICU and emergency room staff, fourth floor nurses, Dawne Briggs, Safeway Pharmacy staff, our paramedics and first responders, and BC Air Ambulance crews. Sharron will be deeply missed by immediate and extended family, friends and community. Her funeral service will be held at 11 am on Saturday, June 10, at St. David and St. Paul Anglican Church, 6310 Sycamore Street. Death is no more than passing from one room to another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see. ~ Helen Keller Donations may be made if desired to Canadian Diabetes Association in Sharron’s name.
