She is predeceased by her grandfather Edward Forbes; mother Anne Bewick; father George Bewick; sister Diane Bewick; sons Lance and Todd Peterkin; and the love of her life George Adams.
She will be incredibly missed by her grandchildren, Paige Procter (Pierre) and Robert Procter (Robyn) and Morgan Langrell; sister Brenda Fyfe (Jerry); niece Cathy (Marcus) Vouk, Wendy Ostasz, Karen Fyfe and nephew Jerry Fyfe. She also leaves to mourn special friends Marni and Mike Langrell, Jo-Anne Procter, Hazell Morton, Dorothy Dunham, Brenda Balan and family, Carole Solmundson, Val Keatings, Iris Kennedy and Family and countless other wonderful friends.
Sharon grew up in St. James and raised her two boys in Woodlands. She shared a life with her wonderful late partner George in Birds Hill, and finally retired to her beautiful home in Winnipeg, surrounded by her friends and family. She spent her last few years residing (and keeping the staff on their toes and entertained) at the Revera Rosewood and West Park Manor. Her colourful resume included many titles over the years such as swimming instructor, horse whisperer, chef, costume designer, and housekeeper for many clients. She loved baseball, music, and animals, but her true passion was gardening. Sharon was happiest among the flowers in her garden and spent most of her spring and summer tending to her stunning masterpieces (and spent most of fall and winter dreaming up how to make next year’s even more impressive). Everything she touched turned into a beautiful, blooming piece of art!
Sharon and George shared a wonderful love story, they spent many happy times out at the lake swimming and fishing and enjoyed their late night cruises on the lake listening to Patsy Cline. They travelled to classic car shows and took many trips on George’s motorcycle, and were always hosting friends and family. She also had a wonderful group of friends and has fond memories of travelling with them, crafting with them, and of course, gardening with them. In later years she continued to make friends wherever she went. The staff at her care homes loved to tell her family how much fun she was during group activities and how she kept them laughing all the time! Life was not always kind to her, but she had unmatched resilience in the face of tragedy. Despite many losses, Sharon loved life and living in the moment. She was always laughing so hard she would snort and was up for any new adventure that presented itself!
She lived for her grandkids. She would do anything for them, whether that be walking in knee-deep water to catch minnows in the creek, making their elaborate Halloween costumes come to life, riding roller coasters, and driving them to sports and music lessons. She had the most generous heart and didn’t know how to say no when it came to spending time with them. The kids have fond memories of many outdoor adventures, their signature weekend sleepover trifecta (Blockbuster, Gondola Pizza and gummy bears), Halloween costume designing at Brenda Balan’s, and their over ambitious (usually successful) homemade Christmas gift making endeavours. Everything she did, she put her whole heart into and laughed all the way. Paige, Robert, and Morgan will be forever grateful for her instilling them with a sense of adventure and teaching them to live every moment to the fullest. She has left a legacy of love and laughter with them.
The family would like to give a special thanks to the staff at West Park Manor for their exceptional care and kindness, especially in light of the pandemic where they took extra care to ensure that she was never lonely and always having fun! Special thanks to Marni Langrell for her thoughtful efforts to always try and make life easy and enjoyable for Sharon.
A celebration of life will be held in the summer of 2022 when we can honour Sharon in her favourite season, surrounded by flowers. In lieu of flowers, you can make a donation to Coffeehouse to End Cancer through the Cancer Care Manitoba Foundation or another charity of your choice. Grandma we love you so much!
