Sharon M. Mannion Saint John , IN

Sharon M. Mannion age 58, passed away Monday, May 18, 2020, with her caring family by her side. She is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Timothy Mannion; children, Michael (Elizabeth) Mannion and Julie (Chris) Hall; mother, Janice Carlson; siblings,Kenneth (Kelly) Carlson, David (Lynn) Carlson, Nancy (Dean) Carlson and Donald (Michelle) Carlson; grandchildren, Emil and Harper Mannion; other "mom and dad" Michael and Sharon Mannion and "sister" Chrisanne Mannion. Also left behind were many adored nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews. She was preceeded in death by her father, Vernon Carlson and nephew, Derek Carlson. Sharon graduated from Munster High School in 1979 to go on to Purdue Northwest, graduating in 1981 with a nursing degree. On September 5, 1981, she married her high school sweetheart, Tim and would later raise two beautiful children together. After graduation, Sharon worked as a nurse for Methodist Hospital until she moved into the oncology field for Cancer Health Treatment Centers. Sharon devoted her life to excellent patient care, being sure that every patient knew her love and joy of helping those who needed it most. Sharon did so while fighting her own battle with cancer, having beaten it three times herself. Sharon was a fighter and was sure to let her patients know anything was possible with the right attitude and willingness to fight any battle. Sharon loved spending time on the water, always looking for the perpetual "cold spot." She loved cooking, whether for her family or to send to those who needed it more, often using recipes she found in her Food Network magazines, marking only the best. She loved to go see her "babies," Emil and Harper, any chance she could. At holidays, Sharon always made sure each and every niece and nephew had a gift basket, with loving teddy bears and unicorns from Build-A-Bear. Those who didn`t know her soon did due to her contagious laughter. Sharon was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend and will forever be remembered by any heart that knew hers. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, May 23, 2020 at 12:00 PM at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home (8178 Cline Avenue Crown Point, IN) with Rev. Michael Surufka, OFM officiating.

To the Mannion Family ,
I worked with Sharon for many years on 4W3 at Methodist . The first thing I always think of when I hear Sharon’s name is how she could always make me laugh -mostly when I was trying not to. She would make a face or a gesture that no one else saw and I would crack up .
I remember her jewelry and thinking how cute she always looked in all her gold.
And I remember what a great nurse she was - she was so smart , and fast , and caring , AND fearless ! She would try anything - do anything to help her patients .
I am so sorry to hear of her loss.
She will be missed by all who ever knew her.
Wishing you peace ,

Sharon was one of my dearest friends way back in high school and before. Sharon was always kind. I truly don't remember a time when she wasn't kind And so fun, as well as ridiculously funny! And when Tim entered the picture, we all had another friend, and it just added to the fun! From the very beginning, that was a match made in heaven! I have such wonderful memories, helping Sharon get ready for prom (of course her date was Tim), crazy high school stuff, visiting Tim at the Marathon station, etc. etc. Tim, you and your family and the Carlson household are all in my prayers. Much Love, Joanie Taylor Saucier

I started working at Methodist in 1976. Sharon started working on the Oncology floor maybe it was 1981..any way...I worked with her the entire time until she moved over to the Cancer Center. What I remember the most was her infectious laugh. She would get me going..sometimes it was just so hard to stop. She always enjoyed her work but especially her patients. She was a very special person!!
Rest in Peace Sharon. Sending prayers to your loving family.

My memories are mostly from my childhood years. Our family would travel north every few years and visit with my mom's side of the family. Every time we went there were more names to learn. Every trip was a blast and great times were had by all. Summer and Christmas visits were magical. My heart goes out to all who knew and loved Sharon. Rest assured one day those family gatherings will happen again - and they'll be many more names to learn. Sharon is with her father now and they are having a magical time together. Lift your heads high and make the most of life because Sharon wouldn't want it any other way. Love and prayers for all.

Sharon was a wonderful friend, coworker, and nurse. I had the pleasure of working with her and respected her greatly. Prayers and hugs to her family! She fought a long hard battle and she is now without pain and at peace. I am so glad I was able to know her! Much love!

I remember Sharon and Ken Carlson from Lanier Grade School. They were the only other set of twins in our class.
Sharon always had a smile on her face and was very kind. As a twin, my brother looks like my dad who was Swedish (I look more like my mom who was Scotch Irish) and I assume Sharon and Ken are/were of Swedish decent also. I was very sad to hear of her passing. Sending prayers to the family.

Tim, Michael, Julie, Jan and family, my deepest sympathy to you on the passing of your beloved Sharon. I have so many wonderful memories through all the years since we were 8 years old (or there about) She was always so much fun and had the best attitude about life! So smart, and caring. I'm going to miss her as a good friend. Love and hugs to you all. She is among the angels with her dad and we will all see her again. Love, Sue Brown/Gunia
