Sharon Marie (Coley) Altwasser

We regret to announce the death on December 1, 2010, of Sharon Altwasser, at the age of 69 years. Sharon was born in Armstrong and was a resident of the Vernon area for most of her life. She will be remembered by many as the charming bartender for many years at the National Hotel. She loved nature, and dearly treasured her time at the lake cabin.

Sharon was predeceased by her husband, Ken, in 1992. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her children: sons Scott (Toni) of Lumby and Shane (Sylvia) of Vernon; and daughter, Cindy of Vernon; grandchildren Brittany, Braeden, Dayton and Coley; and great grandson Ryder. She is also survived by a number of extended family members.

Friends are invited to join the family at a gathering to celebrate Sharon’s life, to be held on Sunday, December 12, between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the home of Shane Altwasser, 6793 Longacre Drive. In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Sharon to the BC Heart and Stroke Foundation, #4 – 1551 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9.
