A light has gone out in Toronto with the passing of Sharon she was a vivacious, beautiful, caring and fun loving woman I will miss her dearly. We may have lived at either side of the pond but we were firm friends and we had the joy of being able to travel around Ireland and Canada together. The most memorable had to be our trip to Vancouver and Whistler when we stayed with old friends of Sharon’s and hooked up with her extended family she was in her element and I am so glad now that we were able to make that trip. She loved being with everyone and they loved being with her so take heart Kelly and Mike hers was a life well spent and take comfort knowing that she loved you all dearly and that she has now left us to be with your dad!

What an amazing woman. She lived and loved life and family to the fullest. I have the fondest memories of visiting the east coast. Always wished I lived closer so that I could see them more often. My favourite time to visit was at this time of year, Christmas time. Sitting around the dining room table for hours, laughing, talking, greeting the many people who would stop by to wish a Merry Christmas and share a cup of cheer. Then there was decorating the Christmas tree. No one could put tinsel on a tree like Sharon. All of us gathered around the bar, still talking, laughing all the while listening to Jo Stafford's Christmas Album.

I'm pretty sure Sharon and John are slow dancing to Moonlight in Vermont, while smiling and looking down on the two of you, Taylor and Connor.

May wonderful memories help you through this difficult time.

Sending you so much love and deepest condolences.

Dearest Kelly and Mike,

Love and kisses to both of you. Aunt Sharon will be missed by so many. Aunt Sharon was one of a kind: happy, funny, witty, the life of the party, caring, giving, compassionate, sincere and loved her family dearly. I remember when you were both babies and Aunt Sharon and Uncle John were so proud of you. I have more pictures I will send later.


Aunt Sharon, Uncle John, Kelly and Michael are so special to us.

So many warm beautiful family memories.

Your family would come to our house in Hamilton or we would go to yours OFTEN when we were children into our teens. Laura, Scott and I would be in the back seat with Mom and Dad in the front driving to the Greer household. Enjoyed the simple things in life like dinner together, playing fun board games (Jeopardy was a favourite), swimming in the pool or just laughing and enjoying being together. Long after these get togethers Gordon and I received many letters and Christmas cards every year. We would call if in Toronto and were always welcome to stop in and catch up.

Your parents were always supportive and there for so many: personally helped me get ready for my Grade 12 grad, my wedding, invited me to stay over while attending Real Estate admin courses and much more.

Aunt Sharon is VERY SPECIAL to those who were fortunate to have known her.

Love you both to the Moon and Back, Take care.
Kelly the picture has the Christmas balls I made with your Mom and Grandma!

Dear Kell and Mike,

So many memories of your Mum and Dad on Craigmore growing up. They were alway so welcoming. One of my favourites is being at your house around Christmas and how lovely festive and warm the basement was with your tree with the snowball lights in the corner and the music playing., Cricket curled up on the couch. Your Dad made me a mixed tape of that music..and I always think of them when I hear Baby it’s cold outside😊.. Always lots of laughter from your mum. Much love to you all. Andrea xoxo

Dear Kel and Mike

I am so sorry that your Mom has passed. She was a great lady who had such a sense of joy and fun. I will always remember the hours and hours I spent in the pool swimming with Kelly. I was always welcome. I remember her laughing at how blue and wrinkled we would be!

I can still hear her wonderful laugh over the backyard fence.

All my love

Bill and I have been next door neighbours with John and Sharon for 58 years! Our kids are the same age, so they were back and forth, with two yards for play. Our girls were always welcome when they had had family and friends drop in.
It was the same with us.

Sharon and I had a day out regularly. The kids would go to one house for lunch and return there after school until the mom came home from her very welcome day out.

We enjoyed hearing Sharon's laughter and having chats over the fence.

We have been blessed with John and Sharon's friendship for so many years. There are many memories.

Dear Kelly and Mike...

My heart aches for your loss. I’m so glad Sharon and I had our vacation in Barbados.. great memories.... along with SO many others from the past 40 years. I intend to share thoughts with you going forward.. it will not only keep us those memories fresh in my mind, and no doubt provide a few laughs for you at the same time.

Love Frankie.

One of the many fun memories I have of Sharon...We went on one of our excellent adventures to the symphony and we always enjoyed dinner first with a good gab and laughter. We were in a restaurant opposite Roy Thomson Hall. Sharon ordered a Steam Whistle and I had coffee because I would fall asleep during the performance if I drank, lol. They had just brought Sharon's beer when the fire alarm went off and everyone had to leave the restaurant. Sharon insisted on taking her beer which was in a glass. Outside we were being ushered to the street and a waitress stopped Sharon and said she could not leave with her beer so she said "fine" and parked herself in the outdoor patio. A fireman came over and said we had to leave and Sharon proceeded to tell him we were from a family of fireman and gave him all the details. Turned out he knew Wayne Greer. So Sharon held court to all the fireman as each came to visit. She even convinced the waitress to bring us sandwiches. We didn't have to pay for anything! What a hoot it was. Only in Sharonville did this sort of thing happen! I was lucky enough to be a part of her world!
