Obituary For Sharon Thomson
It is with the greatest of sadness we announce the passing of Sharon Thomson. It is hard to believe it has been a year and a half since heaven gained this true angel. Sharon passed October 25, 2020, at the age of 69 years, with family by her side.
To say she gave her all to the people she loved, and everything she did, would only touch the surface to speak on the person Sharon was. She had energy for days, and that energy was always spent on her family, friends, and health. She was a very devoted wife, mother, and grandmother -family was everything to her.
From the hours she spent in the rinks watching her grandsons play hockey, or at the hill watching skiing, to the summers she spent in their beautiful motorhome with Jack and often the grandkids.
To her cooking the most beautiful meals, never ever missing a birthday celebration with a home made cake, she showed her love single everyday.
Sharon took her health very seriously, be it at SunCapsule in Grande Prairie, AB, or Servus Place in St Albert, AB, she was there everyday, and made some lifelong friends along the way. She always loved her lunches with her SunCapsule girls and girlfriends.
Sharon was born on June 22, 1951, in Neilburg, SK, and spent the first 18 years of her life there on the farm, with her parents and three brothers. She loved helping her mom do all things around the house. She had a great passion for cooking and cleaning that was learnt at a young age, and of course was able to pass on to her own two daughters.
When Sharon turned 18 she packed up and headed west, where she would meet her husband Jack. Jack and Sharon were married for 46 years, and shared a love for traveling, NASCAR racing, curling, country dancing, and camping. They had many great years in Quesnel B.C, Grande Prairie, and finally in St Albert, where they had moved to be closer to their youngest grandsons.
Sharon is so deeply missed by her children: Rollie Thomson (Shelley), Marlee Thomson McAdie (Shawn), and Jacqie Wheeler (Ryan), her grandchildren: Colton, Kaiden, and McKenna Thomson, Dylan Thomson-Smith and Mason Smith, and Grady and Brexton Wheeler; as well as brothers and sisters in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends The girls, would like to extend their deep gratitude and thanks to Dr. Guhle, for his unbelievable care for their mother.
Sharon was predeceased by her mother and father Joe and Agnes Watson, and her younger brother Keith Watson.
