Sharma Lee VanDyke Stotts was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Surrounded by her family and loved ones, she moved on to Heaven on March 24, 2023, due to complications from pneumonia.
She was born to Marvin and Shirley Steed on October 3, 1947 in Ogden, Utah. After graduating from Ogden High School and raising five children, she later attended Weber State University and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. She worked as an Operating Room Nurse at McKay Dee Hospital for 23 years.
Sharma thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her family and hosted many parties and holiday gatherings. She loved to travel with family and planned many fun vacations. She had numerous talents which included playing ukulele, crochet, cross-stitch, and painting. Reading and shopping were her favorite pastimes, but the thing she looked forward to most was holding her grandbabies.
Sharma is survived by her husband and soulmate, Jim Stotts. She is the proud mother of five children, Wendy (Bryan) Cook, Boe VanDyke, Tyson (Kerri) VanDyke, Ryan VanDyke, and Jed (Lisa) VanDyke; four stepchildren, Stacey Stotts, Shanna Stotts, Nick (Shannon) Stotts, and Aspen Hopkins; 16 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
