Obituary For Sharon Thomson

June 22, 1951 - October 25, 2020

It is with the greatest of sadness we announce the passing of our mom, Sharon Thomson. It is hard to believe it has been a year & half since heaven gained our true angel.

Sharon passed October 25th, 2020, at the age of 69 with family by her side. To say she gave her all to the people she loved, and everything she did, would only touch the surface to speak on the person Sharon was. She had energy for days, and that energy was always spent on her family, friends, and health. She was a very devoted wife, mother, and grandmother -family was everything to her.

From the hours she spent in the rinks watching her grandsons play hockey, or at the hill watching skiing, to the summers she spent in their beautiful motorhome with Jack and often the grandkids.

She cooked the most beautiful meals, never ever missed a birthday celebration with a homemade cake, and she showed her love single every day. Sharon took her health very seriously, be it at SunCapsule in Grande Prairie, or Servus Place in St. Albert she was there every day and made some lifelong friends along the way. She always loved her lunches with her SunCapsule girls & girlfriends.

Sharon was born in Neilburg, Saskatchewan and spent the first 18 years of her life there on the farm, with her parents and three brothers. She loved helping her mom do all things around the house. She had a great passion for cooking & cleaning that was learnt at a young age, & of course was able to pass on to her own two daughters. When Sharon turned 18, she packed up and headed west, where she would meet her husband, Jack. Jack and Sharon were married for 46 years, and shared a love for traveling, NASCAR racing, country dancing, and camping. They had many great years in Quesnel B.C, Grande Prairie, AB., and finally in St. Albert, AB. where they had moved to be closer to their youngest grandsons.

Sharon is so deeply missed by her children: Rollie Thomson (Shelley), Marlee Thomson McAdie (Shawn), and Jacqie Wheeler (Ryan), as well as her grandchildren; Colton, Kaiden, McKenna Thomson, Dylan Thomson-Smith & Mason Smith, and Grady & Brexton Wheeler, and her brothers, sisters in law, cousins, nieces, nephews & friends.

Sharon was predeceased by her father and mother Joe & Agnes Watson, and her younger brother Keith Watson.

The Girls would like to extend their deep gratitude and thanks to Dr. Guhle, for his unbelievable care for their mother.

A joint Celebration of Life for Sharon, along with her husband Jack, will be held in Grande Prairie Alberta, June 25 @ 1:00 at St. Joseph Catholic Church- 10404 102 street with a lunch & tea to follow. Of course, there will also be an evening gathering to share a happy hour “toddy” drink in Sharon & Jacks memory at the Crown & Anchor Pub at 7:00pm.

Photos, memories, and condolences and be shared with the family through email jacqiewheeler@hotmail.com Or on the Facebook memorial page “In loving memory of Jack & Sharon Thomson”.

    My beautiful friend Sharon. Lots of amazing memories from our road trip through Canada and when we first met in Barbados, where Sharon made us a fabulous pot roast. Our Rum O'clocks by the pool. How much I laughed when Sharon phoned and told me she'd been chased in to a strangers house by a moose whilst out on her morning walk. Just so many beautiful memories. A truly lovely lady that I will never forget. Sharron and graham.
