Sharon Marie Chapman, late of Arcola, SK, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at the age of 67 years. Predeceased by her parents Henry Petrie and Irene Petrie. Sharon is survived by her loving husband of 49 years, Kelly; daughter Tammy (Delbert) Wyatt of Saskatoon, SK; son Chad (Lori) Chapman of Estevan, SK; five grandchildren, Kristopher (Mary-Liz), Paige, Kelsey, Ashley and Mathew; great-granddaughter, Hannah; sister Carolyn Petrie of West Kelowna, BC.
Sharon enjoyed being an active member in the community of Arcola, giving her time to various organizations, especially those involving music, kids and seniors. She enjoyed the Arcola Drama Club, United Church Choir and most recently the St James United Church Choir, as well as a number of youth groups over the years. After long hours working at the grocery store with Kelly, Sharon always made time to help seniors by cutting their hair, getting in a perm and a colour, while having tea and a good visit. Sharon always had a story to share with family about playing piano at the United Church, organizing meals and activities at Golden West Lodge or enjoying the entertainment at the Kenosee Lake Kitchen Party.
Her happiest times in life were spent with her grandchildren, she loved them very much and any activity they were involved in was a must see. Countless hours were spent travelling to watch her grandchildren participate in hockey, volleyball, softball, singing, archery, or playing music. Having family around always put a smile on Sharon’s face. Her most recent joy was meeting her Great-Granddaughter Hannah and was thrilled to see her smile and giggle.
Friends so wishing may make donations in Sharon’s honor are asked to consider the Arcola Health Centre or the Regina Cancer Patient Lodge, 4104 Dewdney Avenue, Regina, SK, S4T 1A3 where donations will be put towards a fund used specifically for lodge upkeep and patient comfort. Flowers are most gratefully declined.
A community gathering to honor Sharon will be held in Arcola at a later date.
