Sharon lived a very full 82 years. She loved her faith, her family, her Irish roots, her friends, the “HaHa’s, and a good lively party.

She also very much enjoyed the many holy pilgrimages she was able to make with her sister through the years. While she didn’t enjoy her sister’s early wake up calls or her sister’s need to be at the front of the line, we are certain she will be thrilled to see Aunt Carol holding her spot at the front of the line, at the Gates of Heaven.

Sharon was also a very loving and devoted Grandma who always showed up with a bag of candy for the kids, but seemed to have selective hearing when her children tried to protest. Grandma also always had ice cream at the ready when a grandchild climbed up on a stool and sat down at the big white counter in her kitchen. She was always seemed to be standing there, trying to serve someone food. Making you a burger or a sandwich was definitely one of her love languages.

Her other great passion was her beloved friends, the “HaHa’s”. A nickname her husband gave that infamous crowd years ago, simply because they started laughing within minutes of getting together, and the laughter always got louder as the night went on.

Sharon is survived by her children, Elizabeth (Bob) Bacigal, Matthew (Renee) Sharai and Jill (Ken) Baushke; grandchildren, Zeke (Courtney) Bacigal, Zeb Bacigal, Regan (Max) Kingsley, Ian Bacigal, Maggie Bacigal, Zachary (Sarah) Sharai, Kaylee Sharai and Mia Rankin; great-grandchildren, Payton Bacigal, Maci Bacigal, Liam Kingsley, Teagan Kingsley and Slade Bacigal; brother, Ron Hartman and Special Friend, Paul Source. She was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas Sharai; sons, Timothy, Tom and Pete Sharai and her parents, Ray and Jeanette (Flynn) Hartman.

Sharon will be missed by many and will leave a void in many lives, but we celebrate her new, glorious life. We know she had a great faith, loved God, and understood that we live our life here on earth, so that we may someday join our Savior in Heaven. May the angels lead her into paradise and martyrs greet her at the door.
