“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
  • 59 years old
  • Born on October 2, 1958 in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom.
  • Passed away on June 3, 2018 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

This memorial website was created in memory of a cherished friend, Sharon Rushton, who died much too soon at 59 years old after a lengthy illness.

Sharon was very proud of the fact that she was born in Glasgow, Scotland. She had two sisters she loved very much, Ann and Liz.  She enjoyed being an aunty to their children.  For her entire life, Sharon was a devoted daughter to her parents.  When they could no longer take care of themselves, she gave up her job to be their caregiver on a full time basis.  While she never complained, it was clear that to take care of them was extremely physically and emotionally demanding.  There can be no doubt that this strain took a great toll on Sharon's health.

She had a friendly, kind disposition and never said a critical word to me.  This is a rare quality in a friend.  We leaned on one another, we laughed a lot (she had a wicked sense of humour).  I envied the fact that she had a great singing voice (I do not).  In addition to being very pretty and having a smashing figure, she was an outstanding gourmet cook and could draw and paint. She was also an animal lover. I don't think anyone loved their dog more than Sharon.

For those of us who were fortunate enough to have known her, Sharon will remain in our hearts forever.
