Sharon was born in Saskatoon on November 30th, 1950. She passed away on May 18th, 2011. Sharon was predeceased by her parents Violet and Peter Strelioff, survived by brothers Gerry and Barry, sister Cathy as well as her guard dog Buddy and four legged companion Jenny. Sharon is also survived by her loving husband Keith, her beloved sons Chad and Scott, daughter-in-law Angela as well as the grandchildren that were so special to her, Evan and Avary.

Sharon was a loving, strong and understanding woman whose great joy was her family. She was so proud of them all and their individual accomplishments. She cherished the time she spent living at “the lake” with her boys and husband in the home Keith built for them on Lake Blackstrap. While living at the lake Sharon served as Alderman in charge of roads, she taught pottery at the College in Saskatoon and worked with the boys ski team. She often spoke of her special memories on the lake with her young family.

Sharon was always caring for others and this was exemplified in the homes she looked after, the daycare she provided for her granddaughter and the bed and breakfast she ran in her heritage home on Vancouver Avenue until the family moved just down the street to their new home. At their new home together, Sharon along with Keith would create a garden retreat beautiful as any work of art. Sharon was a passionate homemaker and exceptional at everything that it entailed, she especially enjoyed the dinners and garden gatherings she had with Keith (“my man”), her sons “the boys”, her precious grandchildren and family.

After 39 years of marriage Sharon was truly an appreciate and loving wife to Keith, she was always there for her “boys” and was the most energetic, affectionate and loving grandmother to her grandchildren. Sharon cherished the time she spent looking after her grandchildren and being “Bamma” to “baby” and Evan meant so much to her. Sharon cared deeply about all those people whose lives she touched and she will be greatly missed but always remembered with utmost love and admiration. A celebration of Sharon’s life will be held at Sand’s on July 8th, 2011 at 1:30 pm with a garden luncheon to follow at 1025 Vancouver Avenue.
