In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of Sharon Coghill at West Haven in Port Alberni Sharon is lovingly remembered by her son, Garth (Lisa), daughter, Laura (Charles), Grandchildren, Tanya (Pete), Brandon (Nyome), Breanne (Mateyko), Travis (Julia), and Taylor (Nash).

Sharon was born on February 4, 1939 in Hudson Bay Saskatchewan. Sharon spent her formative years growing up with 4 brothers and a sister on the family farm in Hudson Bay. There she met and married the love of her life, Grant in 1960. After various moves, taking them to Manitoba and Alberta, they settled in Nanaimo, BC and raised their two children, Garth and Laura. Sharon and Grant spent most of their leisure time together camping. In their retirement years they travelled across Canada and the United States and eventually spending time as snow birders in Southern California, where they enjoyed many years socializing with the many friends they met.
Sharon and Grant were best known for their commitment to their family and friends and were always there to lend a helping hand. One of their best traditions that they will be remembered for, is their traditional “Cream Can Dinners” , which they prepared over the many years, and was enjoyed by all.
Sharon enjoyed and took pride in providing a home, where all their friends and family were made to feel welcome. She enjoyed working in her garden and was well known for her gift of crafting, she could make something out of nothing. Sharon’s will be forever remembered for her quick wit and her many famous and funny sayings.
The Family would like to send a special Thank You to all members of the Westhaven team in Port Alberni for their care and compassion.
A private family gathering will be held at a later date.
