October 9, 1944 – Tuesday, February 28, 2012
AT THE FUNERAL HOME
Celebration of Life Fri 3/2
Sharon Lou Emon accepted her place in Heaven on February 28, 2012 with her family by her side in Buffalo, MN. She was 67 years old.
Born in City of Red Wood Falls, MN on October 9, 1944, she grew up in a small farming community in central Minnesota and graduated from Cokato High School in 1962.
Sharon spent her final working years by achieving her dream of opening “Julia’s Legacy” and caring for Ladies with Memory Loss in her home. Her interests included her children, grandchildren, great grandchild, gardening, reading, antiquing, rescuing dogs, enjoying time at the lake, and do-it-yourself projects including endless makeovers on every room in the house.
Sharon was a testament of courage, hope, strength, and faith to her family in her long fight with cancer. Those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her gentle smile brought much joy to her family. She loved to show God’s love by serving others and will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her husband David Lawrence Emon, whom she married on April 16, 1979, and together they raised three children: Julie Kay Keele, April Cox (Fred Cox) and Randy Emon (Lisa Smith). She is also survived by her grandchildren, Crystal Kay Reynolds (Josh Reynolds), Lucas Littell, Riley Hartman, Cali Annis, Kaden Cox, Braeden Cox, Elaina Cox, and one great-grandchild, Elizabeth Kay Reynolds.
Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, Maurice and Louella Bottomley and Lawrence (Larry) and Geraldine (Geri) Emon, and many rescue dogs who greeted her at Heaven’s gate.
A Celebration of Sharon’s Life was held on Friday, March 2, 2012 from 5-8 P.M. at The Peterson Chapel in Buffalo.
The Peterson Chapel in Buffalo served the family.
