(née FOSS)

December 2, 1952 – December 17, 2020

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, wife, nanny, grandma, sister, auntie, and friend.


Sharon passed away at St. Boniface Hospital on December 17th, 2020 at the age of 68. Left to cherish in her memory are her loving husband Rick; her daughters, Jennifer (Jeff), and Amy (Udo); her grandchildren, Julian, Brittney, Nicolas, Katja and Emma; her sister Sonja (Bob);  numerous nieces and nephews; and many more family and friends.


Sharon was predeceased by her parents Ragna and Ivan Foss and her brothers Ivan and Larry.  She was born on December 2nd, 1952 and grew up in the North End of Winnipeg.  She attended Sisler High School and afterwards was married on September 16th, 1972.


Sharon enjoyed spending time with family and friends, especially her grandchildren. She had a special bond with each and every one of them. She will be remembered for her funny, curious and loving nature. She touched the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing her, which were many throughout the city.  Sharon acted as a mother and friend to all.  If anybody needed a place to sleep, a place to live or needed a place at the dinner table, she opened her home to everybody.   She also had an open home to numerous pets over the years and had a particular love for Labrador dogs. 


Sharon will be remembered by most for her energetic nature, contagious laughter and her love to sing and dance.  Sharon was always the first one on the dance floor.


Her daughters are grateful to have had a mother who was so kind, loving and always present in their lives.   Mom, you will be so deeply missed.


A special thanks from our family to Dr. Funk and the amazing, brave and loving ICU team at St. Boniface Hospital.   Most especially to the nurses who held Sharon's hand throughout her last hours.


Keep dancing, Sharon.  Until we meet again.


“Dear Lord, we lift her high to you on December 17th in honor of the good we saw in her and the love we felt from her.  Please give us the strength to leave her in your care in the knowledge of eternal life through Jesus Christ, Amen.”


In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will be held when we can safely come together. In the meantime, Sharon’s family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by watching the photo-biography above. They also encourage the sharing of photos, memories, and stories by making use of the comment section on this page.
