August 13, 1948 – August 9, 2022
In Loving memory ~
Sharon Anne Scholefield passed away suddenly August 9, 2022 at the age of 73. She was born in West Vancouver, BC to Kermit & Gwendolyn Nesseth. Sharon grew up in West Vancouver & first met Reggie Scholefield when they worked together at Safeway as teenagers. They married in 1968 & their first son Corey (wife Justine & children Charlotte, Wolfe) was born in 1970 followed by their second son Grant (wife Aimee & children Clare, Sofie, Natalie, Victoria) in 1973.
Sharon & Reggie moved to Vancouver Island in 1974 where they continued to raise their family. In 1985 they opened and ran Reggie’s Veggies and Deli until they sold in 2007 to retire. Sharon was predeceased by Reggie in 2008. Sharon had a passion for travel all her life. It was on a trip to China in 2012 where she met Dean Wiens. They married in 2014 & continued to share their love of travel together with many trips abroad including India, Italy, Spain & more. Dean lovingly referred to Sharon as his “China Doll”. Sharon is also survived by her sister Beverly Slater (husband Brian & children Brody, Marnie) & brother Arne Nesseth (wife Mary, & children Niki, Jason).
Sharon loved her family more than anything & nothing filled her heart more than to feed them all the family favorite meals that she so lovingly prepared, no one ever left hungry! While Sharon preferred to live a private life, she was well known throughout the Cowichan Valley, through her many years working at the family store with Reggie, the boys, and the “wise old deli ladies”.
She became connected to many customers and their families, by sharing life stories with many that passed through the doors of the store. Sharon was a loving wife, mother, Nana, sister and friend and will be greatly missed by all who were connected to her.
