Sharon was born on May 5, 1947 to Albert and Helen (Anderson) Anderson in Rush City.

She was always so proud of her three grandkids. She never missed a sporting event or life activity and was their biggest cheerleader and biggest fan.  She was a bonus Grandma and “Geema” to so many others. Sharon will always be loved, never forgotten and forever missed. 

Survivors include her son, Chris (Carrie) Johnson of Eveleth; daughter, Janeece (Mike McLeod) Johnson of Gilbert; three grandchildren: Kyle, Dalton (Maggie West) and Morgan Johnson; two sisters: Yvonne (Bill) Schultz of the Twin Cities and Susie (Mike) Griffin of Rush City; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
