            Sharon worked for over 35 years as a nurse in a variety of healthcare settings, including, 10 years for Dr. Pfeiffer at his McGregor Clinic until his retirement. She returned to school to advance her degree and spent 21 years as a hospice nurse providing compassionate care and comfort to numerous patients and families in the surrounding community. Sharon was dedicated to her profession and a strong advocate for her patients.
            Her favorite pastimes included golfing with friends and family, dining out, and spending quality, fun time with her friends, family, children, and grandchildren. She was known for her quick wit, sense of humor, competitiveness, and strong intellect.
            She was a loving wife and companion, a supportive and inspirational mother and a very proud grandmother to her four grandchildren. Sharon held a genuine interest in the achievements of those she knew. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
            Sharon is survived by her husband of 50 years, Ted Berns, her daughter Sarah (Andy) Yarrington and her son, Nathan (Joelle) Berns, her four beautiful and vibrant grandchildren, Olivia, Nadia, Chase, and Emilia.
