December 22, 1953 – December 31, 2020

Sharon Agnes Christensen passed away December 31, 2020.

She is survived by her husband John of 47 years, her children; Christina (Michael), Melanie (Dean), and Eric (Lorna), and her grandchildren; Madelyn, Andrew and Emma.

Sharon was born and raised in a farming community near St Donatus Saskatchewan. She was the eldest of 15 children born to Wendelin and Zita Kohlman and is survived by her siblings; Robert, Gerald, Maria, James, Bernard, Laurianne, Denis, Norbert, Chris, Terry, Wendy, Nick, Rita, and Jennifer; and many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles. She was raised in an environment where family is important and carried that philosophy throughout her life. Family always came first.

Sharon had many interests in life. She read voraciously. She volunteered. She worked in many different occupations but in her latter years she was able to work in her passion; home design and renovation.
Unfortunately, she was struck down early by a fast aggressive form of ALS. The family wishes to acknowledge the wonderful support from the ALS clinic, the ALS Society and Homecare. Their support made it possible for her to fulfill her final wish to die at home in the company of family.

Because of Covid – 19 restrictions there will be no public funeral. In lieu of flowers, we encourage donations to the ALS Society of Alberta.

  1. Rita and family, John and family (all the families):
    Our thoughts and heartfelt sympathies are with you all at this time.
    Sharon was a golden ray of sunshine and an absolute godsend to me at Midwest (way back when). She will be missed and fondly remembered!

  2. Very sorry to you and your family for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  3. Sharon was a loving and inclusive person who always made me feel like part of the family. I will never forget her and her kind heart.
    My heart goes out to her family that she loved and cherished. ❤️

  4. So sorry to hear of your Sisters passing Gerald and family are thoughts are with you.

  5. Condolences and prayers
    I was Sharon’s teacher back in 1964-65 at St Mary School
    I was impressed by her wide knowledge resulting from her voracious reading appetite
    A bright light even back then

  6. I went to school with Sharon at St Mary’s. She was always using big words that none of us understood. When we asked her how she knew so many unusual words she said she loved reading the dictionary. My sincere condolences to all of her family.
