My deepest sympathies to Sharon’s family and friends. I have so many wonderful memories of Sharon and I at work and outside of work. It’s hard to imagine a world without her - her smile, laugh, determination, compassion and optimism. Heaven just became a little brighter. RIP Sharon.
My goodbye note to A BEST FRIEND When I close my eyes I see you smile, I hear you speak and remember your laugh, when I allow myself to flow through memories I cry but know those are gifts you left me My Memories of you are like colours of a rainbow Beautiful, magical, happy, and always a pot of gold I love you
Met Sharon less than a decade ago but the friendship garnered from her love for life and laughter will be forever remebered as a light for my life as well. A constant reminder she will be to the goodness within people
Sharon was my mentor when I first arrived in the London office. She was caring, compassionate and very patient. She had a wonderful sense of humor and I will always remember her laugh. What a lovely lady.

Sharon was a compassionate and dedicated Caseworker who made a positive impact in the clients she served. Her determination is a great example for all of us. My sincere condolences to her pets and family.
I had the pleasure of working with Sharon for a number of years, during which I grew to know an incredibly courageous woman, with a wit and accompanying laugh that I remember warmly after almost 40 years. She had a toughness and determination, wrapped within generosity, kindness, and simply put, Sharon was such a good person, and they really don't make em like that anymore. Sleep with angels, Sharon.
With great sadness I am sending my condolences to the family of Sharon. She and my step mother Blanche went on a few adventures together with alot of great things said about Sharon from Blanche. Sending hugs for comfort.
My sincere condolences to Sharon's family. We worked together many years ago and also went on training to Windsor together. I appreciated her dedication to her clients and her camaraderie with coworkers.
So saddened to hear of Sharon's passing. She was a great coworker and a very loyal friend. I regret losing contact over the years. My sincere condolences to her family. Love always. RIP.
So sorry to hear about Sharon's passing. I worked with her for years before her retirement and she was always so kind and gracious. Definitely a mentor anyone would have been lucky to have. My deepest condolences on your loss.
My deepest condolences Janet & Brad and families. I feel truly blessed for being able to spend time with her and make many wonderful memories with Sharon. Most of all for being able to call her my friend. She was a very special lady and will be deeply missed.

Our most sincere condolences to All of Sharon's family and friends. We first met when Sharon was a receptionist for the provincial government in downtown London. The "front line" for any and every caller to that office. A very busy, high-profile and many would say, stressful, position. Her responses to these calls were unmatched. A finer and kinder person we will never expect to meet. An open and generous heart, a pleasant word for everyone she met or spoke with, a spicy sense of humour, a total absence of any complaint or negative thought. Rest now in Peace, Sharon.
