I worked with Sharon many years ago @ Sts Mary & Elizabeth Hospital. She was a great person & I'm so glad that I've kept in touch with her on FB. She loved being a nurse & she loved her husband & children then grandchildren....she would talk about them all the time. She was a devout Christian. So sorry for her loss & I'm sending condolences to her friends & family during this difficult time.

When I first started working as an agency nurse at St Mary and Elizabeth Hospital years ago, Sharon was one of the first to make me feel welcome. I remember her talking about being involved with her daughter's activities at school . She was a great mother,

Sharon was one of the nightshift charge nurses when I started at St Mary’s in 2000. She was a brilliantly knowledgeable nurse and was one of my mentors, helping me grow and learn as a new nurse. They don’t make them like her anymore. Rest In Peace, Sharon. You will be missed 💗
