Sharon Schuler

Sharon K. Schuler of Fairview, Oregon passed away peacefully on December 30, 2017 after a brief and courageous battle with cancer.

 

Sharon was born to Leo and Lavernne White in Portland, Oregon on April 9, 1943. She grew up in Portland and attended St. Rita’s Catholic School and graduated from Grant Union High School. Sharon enlisted in the Navy after high school where she trained to become a hospital corpsman at the Naval Hospital Corps School, Great Lakes, Illinois.

After an unfortunate accident, she was widowed and returned to the Portland area to be close to family.

 

Sharon was a homemaker and natural caregiver; she spent many years taking care of children, including her grandchildren after she retired from working outside the home in the service industry.

 

Sharon was a faithful parishioner of St. Rita Catholic Church; she enjoyed spending time with family, collecting religious items, especially rosary’s and taking walks with with her beloved dog, Sofie and grandson Jordan. She is already greatly missed by her family and friends.

 

She is survived by her sister, Janice Lis (Jerry) of Amarillo, TX; her children: Sam Schuler (Jacqueline) of Cataula, Georgia, Kristin Jay (Patrick) of Fairview, Oregon; and by her grandchildren:  Kaleb and Maria Schuler and Jordan and Nick Jay.

 

She was preceded in death by both of her parents and her sister Beverly Schrick (Richard).
