SMITH (NEE JENSEN), Sharon Kathren

October 22, 1954 – April 14, 2017

It is with heavy hearts that we say good-bye to Sharon, beloved wife of Noel and loving mother to Ryan. She was predeceased by their son, Jason, and parents Agner & Helen Jensen. She leaves to mourn her brothers Darrell and Alan (Rose) Jensen, her brother-in-law, Larry (Sue) and sister-in-law, Deb Ryall, numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and many surrogate grandchildren.

Sharon was born in Vernon and, except for a few years away from the area, has made, with her high school sweetheart, a welcoming home for family and friends in the Okanagan area. Her mental strength and determination through her life’s trials are much admired by those who knew her. Her cheerfulness, love, and acceptance of all who crossed her path made their home a gathering place for many over the years.

A Celebration of Sharon’s life will be held Tuesday, June 20th at 10 am at the Women’s Institute Hall, Coldstream, BC. Please come and join us to share your treasured stories and memories of Sharon.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation in support of the Transplant Research Foundation of BC in her name.
