Sharon Louise Parrett
February 7, 1962 – November 24, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sharon Louise Parrett (Haddleton).
Beloved wife of Glen and most wonderful devoted mother of Sydney and Erin Bull, Sharon’s long and difficult battle with cancer, came to an end November 24th. She slipped away peacefully and with the grace she displayed throughout her life, he family and friends at her side.
Born in Prince George, Sharon was predeceased by her parents Ivor Leslie Haddleton and Gertrude (Harvey) Haddleton. The youngest of three daughters, Sharon attended Langara College after graduation from Prince George Secondary School.
Sharon built a successful career as an Official Court Reporter. She performed her duties for more than 35 years, with the same dedication and passion she applied to everything she tackled.
Her cancer journey led her to become a member of the NorthBreast Passage dragon boat team, where she became part of the executive and eventually the president. Her love of life and sparkle shone during practice runs on West Lake and when she joined her team mates at competitions.
Sharon treasured her family and friends and her family extended, and included, many outside her immediate family. She often put her own needs aside in order to offer some help, lend a hand, share a cup of tea or advice, or laughter.
Those who knew Sharon, have described her with one simple word, grace, for that is how she lived her life and treated everyone she met. Her strength, determination, and toughness, were accompanied by the great depth of empathy she had for all.
Sharon’s accomplishments were many, by perhaps, the greatest was the impact and impression she made on virtually everybody she met.
She is survived by her loving husband Glen, daughters Sydney and Erin (Casey Cavers), sisters Mavis Conway (David) and Leisa Haddleton (Geoff Bradshaw) and brother Peter McLean (Julie).
A memorial celebration of Sharon’s life will be held on Saturday November 30th at 1:00pm at St. Michaels Anglican Church.
In lieu of flowers, donation may be made to Prince George Rotary Hospice House.

In grade 2 I got introduced to my best friend Leisa and her family. Sharon, you were the younger sister. Spunky is how I would describe your younger elementary years. Of the 3 Haddleton girls you had the most attitude. You could throw our hair back, turn on a dime and leave Leisa and I wondering what happened. From afar I did marvel at how put together you always were. I always felt like the ugly duckling almost sister. I loved how you called your sister Leis. It was almost musical.
The world will miss you my dear! Heaven is better place with you there. There is no doubt our paths will cross. Laurie
