We Remember

WARNER, Sharon

March 10, 1949 – July 14, 2021

Warner (née Wirachowsky), Sharon:  72, mother, daughter, and dear friend to so many; died after a brief and consuming battle with cancer on July 14, 2021.  She had been diagnosed with cancer just 6 weeks prior.

Sharon grew up in Kelowna, BC and raised her family in Lake Country, BC.  She was a hairdresser for over 50 years, with clients traveling to her home salon from all over the valley.  She worked so hard to keep us all looking beautiful.

She was incredible at sports.  Although petite, her golf swing rivaled the best.  She loved to golf, ski, swim and curl; when at home she loved to sew, knit, and crochet.  We will cherish her creations even more now.  She had a passion for music, dancing, and jokes.  Just like her father, she always had a bawdy joke whether you were sipping a beer or in her hair chair.  We all relied on her for her wisdom: you could always call her up for advice in the garden, the kitchen, or just in life.  Sharon always told you the truth, even if it was tough to hear.

Sharon was predeceased by her son Greg, father Alex and husband Jim.  She is survived by her two children, Jeff and Landis, their spouses, and her beloved grandsons, Beckett and Elliott; as well as her two brothers, Ralph and Francis, and their families.  Her extended family is enormous, and she loved them all.  Sadly, just days after Sharon’s passing, her mother Marge Wirachowsky also passed away.  Sharon always said they were best friends.

In June 2015, Sharon lost her husband Jim in a similar battle with cancer.  Learned too late and gone too soon.  If you would like to honour them at this time, please donate “in memory” to the BC Cancer Foundation.

A Celebration of Life for Sharon and Marge will be held at Sharon’s home on Saturday, August 7, 2021, from 10am-1pm.  Friends and family are all welcome.
