Sharon was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to John and Mary Nicolson. She moved to Winnipeg as a young girl and grew up in the Elmwood area with her 3 younger sisters and attended Elmwood High School.
Sharon started working as a Travel Agent in the late 1970’s and worked in the industry for close to 40 years until retiring in 2016.
Sharon had a passion for cooking and loved to throw dinner parties for her family and friends. She also enjoyed golfing, curling and bowling. She loved spending time at the lake and was never happier than when she was living in her house out in Matlock, Manitoba.
Sharon was a member at John Black United Church and in addition to attending Sunday service regularly she also enjoyed volunteering at many church events. In recent years she had joined some of the ladies in a pie making group and had such a wonderful time doing that.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Movement Centre of Manitoba in Sharon’s name.
