In loving memory ~
Sharon Eleanor Pease (nee McConnell), beloved wife of Michael died on Thursday, February 2, 2023, at the age of 91, after a lengthy battle with dementia.
Sharon is survived by her husband, Michael, and daughters Marielle (George), Richenda (Jim), and Larissa (Vaun), granddaughter Abbey, her younger brother Arlen (Sylvia) and sister-in-law Marion. She is predeceased by her other three siblings David McConnell (Mae), Marie Messmer (Earl), Stallard McConnell, and parents Alice (nee Mallard), and David McConnell.
Mom had a sunny attitude, kindness, and social nature. She loved big band music and would often reminisce about the dances that she would attend as a young woman. She was very creative and as a teacher, spent endless evenings during her career creating new lesson plans for her students, and art projects for her classroom. Sharon excelled at all the domestic arts. She asked little for herself and gave endlessly to others. She immensely enjoyed the camaraderie of her female friends and cherished and nourished each friendship. She always had a smile on her face. She will be missed greatly by her family, friends, and community.
Many thanks to the staff at Pine Grove Care Facility for their excellent care of Sharon in her last eleven months. By Sharon's request, she was cremated and there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, a donation could be made to the Alzheimer's Society of BC.
