Sharon Rose Ann Jaster, age 60, passed away on December 17, 2009 at Heritage Village, Chilliwack. She was predeceased by her parents, Rev. Robert and Elsie Jaster, formerly of Chilliwack, and three brothers, Raymond, Marvin, and David.
Sharon was born September 2, 1949 in High Prairie, Alberta and was shortly thereafter diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Despite her disability Sharon learned to read at a 2nd Grade level, and could type simple phrases on a manual typewriter. She loved swimming and going to summer Camp. One of her favourite pastimes was colouring, having filled a multiple number of books. Sharon was blessed with a happy disposition and always had a smile and a hug for everyone.
After suffering a health setback 4 years ago, Sharon went to live at Heritage Village where she received the most excellent care. Her tenacity and love of life is a legacy she leaves to her family; brothers Harvey Jaster, (Port Dover, ON.), Gene Jaster, (Cranbrook) sisters Laurie James (Chilliwack), Mrs. Carol Blessin (Chilliwack), plus many nephews, nieces and cousins. A private service will be held for immediate family members.
Donations in Sharon’s name can be made to the Chilliwack Opportunity Society, 10135 Williams Road, Chilliwack, BC, V2P 5H3.
