Sharon was born with a best friend and confidant in her identical twin Susan throughout their lives they have been mistaken for each other. Their special bond existed from infancy, as babies they had their own language which has continued over the years, an unspoken message, the ability to laugh until they cried, while others were left wondering what was going on. The grandsons have an additional grandmother in Susan who will do her share in passing on Sharon’s legacy, they will know the best secrets and words of wisdom. When Sharon met Tom it was almost love at first sight they met at the Market chip wagon and 6 months later they were married. Sharon was a caregiver dispenser of advice along with cookies, baker of bread, the best apple pies, tarts and Christmas pudding. Her caring has continued even as she prepared her path for the next life, looking after many details and preparing her loved ones the best she could. Sharon always had advice for a quick meal, good book, worthwhile movie. Her sage advice will be greatly missed by her family.
Cremation has taken place and arrangements have been entrusted to the Garafraxa Hill Funeral Home, Chatsworth. A private graveside service will be held Friday July 9, at McLeans Cemetery, Bognor, Rev. Jack Fearnall officiating.
