Sharon was born on October 16th in Breckenridge, Minnesota the only child of Merton and Virginia Karlsbak. She received her education in Wheaton, Minnesota. She joyfully celebrated her 60th Class Reunion last summer, and boy, did she have stories to tell.
As a young family, Sharon and her husband Wally moved to Montana where they loved camping, snowmobiling and watching their children grow. Sharon was employed at the Park Clinic and enjoyed every minute of it. Having completed a year of nursing school prior to having children, she loved the medical field and was happy to contribute.
Sharon was proud of her family: four children: Tim, Brenda, Julie and Brian; especially her five grandchildren, Keelan, Mallory, Nathan, Heidi and Lane. Most recently, she relished doing “projects” with her four great-grandchildren Tyzer, Hailey, Skyler, and Callie. Quilting, knitting and crafting became her retirement hobby in part because she spent time doing this with her wide circle of friends.
Sharon will be welcomed to heaven by her parents, husband and other dear friends and relatives.
Arrangements are under the care of Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory.
