Sharon Denise Anderton

August 16, 1953October 18, 2018

Sharon Denise Anderton, 65, of Hanover passed away peacefully at her home on October 18, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. She was preceded in death by her parents, Eufaula and Leeman Anderton; brother, Wayne Anderton and her long-time partner, Courteney Morris. She is survived by her sisters, Marilyn Smolen (partner, John Lennerton) and Peggy Anderton; nieces, Jillian Tucker (John) and Mallory Faust (Phill); nephews, Trevor Smolen, Kris Kowar and Kyle Kowar-Pensiero (Chris); great-nephews, Hayden and Charlie Faust and great-niece, Claire Tucker. Sharon had been a leader in the Lakeside business community. From 1981 to 2008 she operated Roy's Big Burger on Lakeside Avenue. She began working at "The Burger" at the age of 17. During the years following her retirement, she has counted among her greatest joys and ultimate compliments, the times friends and family asked that she cook burgers "Roy's Style" for birthday and holiday celebrations. Sharon loved taking her nieces and nephews jeeping, found great fun in driving on rugged trails in her beloved Rubo, and enjoyed participating in Jeep charity caravans with fellow Jeep owners. Sharon was best known for her kind heart, her generous spirit, and her intoxicating, wry sense of humor. She and her boundless charm will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Sharon's passionate, life long love for animals and their humane treatment began on the family farm, thus in lieu of flowers, Sharon would be delighted if you offered a donation to Double Dog Rescue, Inc., P.O. Box 435 Unionville, Connecticut 06085 or online at Checks should be made payable to Double Dog Rescue. Services will be private.
