Funeral Homes   Submit Obituary



April 24th, 1956 – January 28th, 2019

It is with great sorrow that we announce, Sharon, age 62, lost her courageous battle with cancer and passed away on January 28th, 2019 at the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital. She was born in Kelowna, BC to Donald and Barbara Sandberg and lived with her husband Jerry in Prince Rupert, BC for many years.

Sharon is predeceased by her father, Donald and her brother, Peter. She is survived by her loving husband Jerry de Boo, her mother Barbara Sandberg, children; Christopher (Samantha), Jeffery, Melanie (Hugh); step-children, Natalie (Scott), Gregory (Michelle); grandchildren, Duncan and Caelynn; step-grandchildren Lukas, Phaedra, Kylie, Rene and Avery; brothers Danny (Jo-Ann) and David, and sister Jo-Ann (Daryl); as well as 3 nephews, a niece, Aunts, an Uncle & many cousins.

Sharon was creative in many ways throughout her life. She loved spending time in her backyard gardening, growing and building with her husband Jerry.

Sharon was dedicated to her family and loved being with her grandchildren. Becoming a Nana/Oma brought her many days of joy. An avid animal lover, Sharon cared for many pets and was known to help any cat or dog that crossed her path.

At Sharon’s request there will not be a service or Celebration of Life. Instead, a donation can be made to the Prince Rupert Wildlife Shelter in honour of Sharon’s memory. Please email: [email protected] or mail them at: Prince Rupert Wildlife Shelter PO Box 26, Prince Rupert, BC V8J 3T4.

Our families would like to thank the staff at the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital, 2nd Avenue Medical Clinic and Kelowna General Hospital for all the care provided to Sharon in her final months.

A Dragon Fly to remind me
Even though we are apart
Your spirit is always with me
Forever in my heart…

    Barb and family,
    Very sorry to hear of Sharon's passing. We both grew up living on McCurdy Road and sometimes would walk to school together. I always remember her being kind and caring all through our school years. May all your memories of her always fill you with comfort and love.

    Someone as special as my cousin Sharon will never be forgotten. She was a beautiful, gentle person inside and out, and I am grateful for the memories of us growing up in a big, close family. We will miss her very much, and I am especially thinking of our family, and Jerry and his family.
    Much love,

    It is with a huge amount of sorrow that I read this. Sharon was my life long friend...someone who would call to ask my opinion on many parts of her way too short life and to give me the same in return. My most heartfelt sympathy to you.. Mrs. Sandberg, Danny, David & Jo-ann...her wonderful children...Chris, Jeff & Melanie...and especially to you Jerry. I remember her phone call when you first asked Sharon out ( one of those opinion times).
    I will miss her dearly.
    Love to you all
