Sharon Kay Prine Lantrip passed away on June 22, 2020. She was born in Yakima, Washington on November 30th, 1947 to Russell Prine and Gladys Simpson Prine.

Growing up in Yakima, Sharon attended Jefferson Elementary, Washington Jr. High, and A.C. Davis High School, graduating Class of 66. She enjoyed being a part of the class reunion committee, McClure PTA, helping in the cafeteria at Riverside Christian, and Davis Booster Club where she helped organize the Christmas Tree lot and spent many years running the corn booth at the fair with her buddy, Bob Vandyke.

Married in 1966, she and Gary enjoyed 53 years together. She truly enjoyed watching their two children, her niece Sara, and 4 grandchildren grow up. If there was a game, dance recital, band concert, or fundraiser she would be there. She loved her kids and grandkids with all her heart and never missed an opportunity to be a part of their activities. She enjoyed traveling to Seaside, Branson, and to the 11th Armored Cav. Reunions each year with Gary.

Although her ultimate job was that of a homemaker, she spent many years working at Hansen’s Fruit, Roche Fruit, and Subway. Most recently she enjoyed working in the floriculture section at the Washington State Fair and spending time with her best friend, Birtie Sires. Her favorite job by far, was to help take care of her grandsons while her kids worked.

She is survived by her husband Gary Lantrip; son Kenneth Lantrip, of Yakima; daughter Kimberly (Keith) Dugger, of Vancouver; niece Sara (John) and Vivian Richards, of Texas, and her four grandkids: Aaron, Alex, Aimee, and Samuel.

She is proceeded in death by her parents Russell and Gladys, brother Bobby, sister-in-law Debbie, and multiple cousins, aunts and uncles whom she loved dearly.

Oh, the memories. The best, and I should've told this at the service. I would always try and sneak a utensil into her purse when we went out to eat. Once she caught on to what I was doing, she always would check, and I would get caught. I was able to get a few spoons in there from time to time. Probably explains why she stopped carrying a purse!
You will be missed, but, we have a strong faith in our Lord, that assures us that we will meet again. I just wish I could have known you longer then 13 years. We will watch over each other, and you will live on in our memories. Tell my mother hi for me!

I'm sitting here, flooded with memories that almost feel like yesterday but, as hard as it is to imagine, are now 30 years old...a lifetime ago. A truly special woman, fiercely loyal and committed to her family, a woman of principle and belief who was not afraid to speak her views and unshakable when it came to the things she believed in and held dear. A woman with a huge ability to love those she cared about. She was someone I deeply respected, who was a part of my life that meant a lot and someone I will miss dearly. The measure of a person is in the legacy they leave and her family is a legacy she was proud of and one worthy of that pride. Thank you Sharon, for everything.

We were so sorry to hear of Sharon's sudden death. She was always so happy and smiling and full of joy.

I remember that she was always frustrated during Christmas at grandpa Al's. Then I had kids and experienced how crazy it was. I remember the hug I got when I apologized for being crazy all those years. She told me we could get through it together.

Growing up, I always thought Kay & I we’re related. My sister and I would walk to her house, and just visit. It didn’t matter if Ken or Kimberly were there to play, we just hung out with Kay. As I got older, with kids of my own, I cherished the lunches and dinners with her & mom, Birtie Sires, (and occasionally Gary. Lol). Living in Florida now, I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I will not be seeing her on my visits home to Yakima. I know that I will see her in Heaven, so I will not mourn as those who have no hope! I love you Sharon “Kay”. ❤️

Am sorry for your loss. Sending prayers for peace and comfort in your time of need. As a Prine cousin, I know she loved working on the family tree and am thankful for all her efforts with that. My grandmother B. P. Essary spoke often of her as well. I too loved working on the family tree. Sharon will be greatly missed.

Gary, My heart is breaking at the news of Sharon's passing. She was such a beautiful, fun, loving soul. I will treasure our Davis Booster Club memories. I am so glad I was in Yakima for the fair last year and had a chance to visit and a few laughs, as always. Wish there was more I could do for you at this time. I don't know if my annual trip to Yakima is in the cards at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Your IKE Class of '64 Classmate, Julie Mattson Sweitz

We are a part of the 11 cab group and we have been meeting in Branson for the Veterans Day parade for at least 16 years and Sharon was always the life of the party !!! She managed to keep us all laughing. We are really going to miss her !!! We love her.

I’ve known Sharon for more years than I care to count. She was the leader in all our class reunions and I doubt we’ll have more without her. She was one of the kindest and most caring people I’ve ever met. She will be missed and I send my condolences to all her family.
