Obituary: Sharon Lee Lorenson (Davis)

Sharon Lee Lorenson (Davis)

Sharon was born on March 1, 1964, to Lloyd and Joy Davis. Her family relocated from Nevada to Kodiak, Alaska, when she was 3 years old. When Sharon was 17, she met the love of her life Gene Lorenson. They were married in 1983 and were happily married until Gene’s passing in 2011.

During their marriage, they welcomed their first child Lynda in 1985. Following Lynda were Gene II in 1988, Grant in 1995 and completing their family was Aaron who was born in 1998.

Sharon was a stay-at-home mom, apart from the years she served as the crossing guard on Mill Bay Road. She was the bright smile in the morning escorting children across the road and making those who drove past smile back at her million-dollar smile. Sharon cared for her children and her husband with love and devotion unmatched by anyone else. Gardening was a passion of hers, and she could often be found in her yards tending to her plants and flowers.

Later in life, she welcomed her grandchild with open arms and a love that was endless. She would spend hours on the phone chatting with her sister-in-law Jackie, chasing after her grandchildren and tending to her yard. She could often be found at her mother-in-law Betty’s kitchen table sharing coffee and laughter. Sharon was also an active member of the St. James the Fisherman Church.

Sharon is preceded in death by her mother Joy Davis and by her first husband Gene Lorenson.

She is survived by her father Lloyd Davis (Lorlee), her daughter Lynda (Jason) and her grandchildren Bryan, Nicholas, Ashlee, Laurelle and Emma Rose; her son Gene (Lanie), her son Grant (Alexandra) and her son Aaron; her brother Terry Davis (Jackie), her sister Susan Knapp, her sister Allison Davis and her brother Lloyd Davis; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Sharon was a light in the lives of her family and friends, and will be missed more than words can say.

A small service was held for Sharon and her family at her church.
