It is with great sadness and much love that we say goodbye to our beloved mother and grandmother, Sharon Assen, who passed away on January 8, 2023 at the age of 71 years.
Born February 8, 1951 in Saskatoon, SK, she married her best friend and soul mate, Tony on March 11, 1972.
Sharon loved yoga, reading, and spending quality time with family and friends. Her greatest passion in her retirement years were her grandchildren. She lived a loving and happy life filled with grace and kindness.
Sharon is survived by her son David, daughter Laura (Jaret), 2 grandchildren: Ava and Kyle, brother Tom (Mary), and many brothers + sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents William and Katherine Smith, and her husband, Anthony Assen.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
The family wishes to extend our sincere gratitude to the amazing staff at St. Joseph’s Auxiliary Hospital for their compassion, support and care shown to Sharon during her stay.
