Our Sharon enjoyed cooking on the grill and being outdoors, especially picnics, hiking and taking long road trips with enjoyment of the scenery with her partner Mo. Sharon really valued the enjoyment of being with her beloved children, family and friends. Sharon always loved making everyone laugh with her teasing and wonderful stories, so many priceless times she gave to our family. We will always remember Sharon’s smile, whole hearted good advice and always taking care of her children, family and friends. We will dearly miss Sharon as a loving daughter, mom, partner, sister, auntie, being Momma Shar and always a good friend. A memorial service will be conducted by Calvary Church located at 4001 Osuna Road N.E., Albuquerque on Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. Thereafter, a reception will follow in the PLEX right after the memorial service to celebrate Sharon’s life. During this time the family would love to hear your stories and fond memories of Sharon. Our family truly expresses their extreme gratitude for your condolences and prayers. We also are so very thankful to Gabaldon Mortuary and Calvary Church for our beloved Sharon’s final arrangements.
