She was predeceased by her father and mother, Alfred and Madge Lepage. (nee Blackman) and her brother, Norman. Sharon was the granddaughter of William Nelson Lepage, the developer of Lepages glue.
Sharon was a long time teacher of typing and Pitman Shorthand at Malaspina College in Nanaimo and was a substitute teacher at many area schools.
She was so involved with the PTA at Lantzvilles Seaview School that the senior girls cup was named “The Sharon Stewart Cup”.
She was one of the first female members of the Kiwanis Club of Nanaimo and was chairman of the board of directors of Kiwanis Lodge during a period of great growth and building. She was a long time Sunday School teacher who believed that children should be taught the basics of living a spiritual, full life.
She will be greatly missed by all but will remain in our hearts. There was no funeral service by her request. Donations could be made in Sharon’s name to the charity of your choice.
