Born in Kirkland, Washington on September 24, 1942 to M.V.

Sharon met the love of her life while working at The Boeing Company, and they were married at her parents' house on Lummi Island (that house is now known as The Willows Inn) on October 2, 1965. After her children were old enough to be in school, Sharon worked part-time as the Secretary at Kent First Presbyterian Church for many years. When her children were in college, Sharon began working full-time as the Head Secretary at the Kent School District, where she worked until she retired in 1996.
