Family was everything to Sharon and she had an open door policy for family and friends, wherever they lived. Sharon loved traveling to Disneyland with her twin sister Karen and their grandchildren. She cherished trips to Las Vegas annually with her mom and sisters to celebrate life.
For the last four years it gave her joy entertaining family and friends for holiday celebrations, BBQs, pool parties and there was a standing invitation for Sunday dinner. Sharon is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Sharon is survived by her husband, Warren; daughters, Jodi Dale and Molly (Todd) Eckert; sons, Greg L (Candace) Johns and Mark L (Shannon) Johns; and grandchildren, Taylor, Tanner, Hunter, Andrew, Matthew, Jack, Nina, and Kora. She is also survived by her sisters, Karen (Scott) Van Leeuwen and Kaye (Randy) Moore; and sisters-in-law, Sue Hartley, Carole (Gordon) Haun and brother-in-law, Bryce Johns. Sharon leaves behind numerous other family members and friends. Once you became a friend of Sharon, you were considered family.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Lynn and Scott Hartley; in-laws, Mary and LeGrand Johns; and brother-in-law, Gordon Johns.
Sharon loves butterflies. To her they represent new life. Every time you see a butterfly she wants you to remember she is always with you.
