Donald and Edna (Pacha) Sieren welcomed Sharon Kathryn into the world on June 16, 1960. She was married to Robert Hagist on June 30, 2001. Sharon had a love for life and her family. She was always on the go, whether it be learning a new hobby, adding to her flower gardens, nurturing animals or spending time with her greatest joy, her grandchildren.

"I had the amazing honor of working side by side with this beautiful woman for a wonderful season. It wasn?t long enough. Sharon?s beauty went deep, and she lit up the therapy department every day. We celebrated many of life?s blessings, and cried together during the rough times. The intensity of love she had for all of her family was unsurpassed. I will forever treasure her touch on my life.

"Sharon was one of the nicest people I had the privilege to work with! She then became a friend outside work, she had all the qualities I admired ?? Great Wife, Mom, and oh my goodness Grandma of the Century. When she first began showing symptoms she stayed so positive and was wrapped in the love of all her Children. She could make anything, anything she was so creative and crafty. I have no doubt...Sharon touched everyone in a special way in her lifetime. Bless her entire family ? she was extra special ??"

"Sharon had such a wonderful family; supporting, loving, and so caring. We hold you all in our hearts as you go through this very difficult time. My love to Uncle Donnie and Aunt Edna as they grieve the loss of their beautiful daughter. Being with Sharon during her extended illness was a heart breaking time for them but now her loss breaks even a different part of your hearts. This obituary is so beautifully written and shows the love you all feel for Sharon. May all your years of memories help to mend the hurt in your hearts. May Sharon rest in eternal peace surrounded by the love of God. She is Home! Love to you always, Marcia and Ted Reece, Scottsdale, AZ"
