She was predeceased by her mother and father, her brother Norm Baily, brother-in-law Harold St. Jean and sister-in-law Mary Baily.
Having grown up in Oak River, MB, Sharon was always a spirit to whom people were drawn. With a positive outlook and an infectious energy, she was the light in her parents’ eyes. Throughout her life Sharon was truly a giving person, in all senses of the word. She became a nurse and worked at the Rockyview Hospital until she and Al Lennox had their daughters. When they moved to an acreage outside of Cochrane to raise their family, Sharon became a pillar in the community. She especially loved her involvement with organizations close to her heart like the Nuclear Disarmament group, the Mustard Seed and the United Church Junior Choir. Sharon gave of herself and was heavily involved with her daughters’ sports lives and supported them unconditionally in all they did in their lives.
Once her daughters were grown, Sharon achieved her Healing Touch Practitioner’s license and took that as well as her nursing experience into the Palliative Care setting. Her presence brought peace and comfort to patients and their families during their time of transition. Her generous spirit and beauty touched many lives. Sharon will be warmly remembered for her dedication to her family and friends, her free spirit and her sense of humor. Her home in Bragg Creek was very precious to her and many were drawn to its’ special energy. She will be deeply missed by so many.
In the 1980’s Sharon became involved in Native spiritual traditions with the initial guidance of Chief John Snow. Sharon was truly an advocate and lived the teaching every day. She was quietly proud of having Sundanced with Elder Eva McKay with the Sioux Valley Nation in Manitoba in the 1990’s. Sharon’s spiritual path was linked to many gifted people and we thank everyone who contributed to her journey.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 6:30pm on Friday, September 13, 2013 at the GALT MUSEUM, 502 1st Street South, Lethbridge.
Donations may be made in her name to St. Michael’s Palliative Care Unit at 1400 – 9 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB T1J 4V5. The family will make a donation in Sharon’s name to the Lethbridge Montessori School for every dollar donated to St. Michael’s on behalf of her grandson, Myles.
