October 26, 1954 – September 24, 2023
On September 24, 2023 Sharon passed away peacefully at the Victoria Hospital at the age of 68.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 48 years Merv; two daughters, Chelsea (Steve), Sarah (Jolyne), grandsons Finn and Kai, sister Barb (Gerry), friends and relatives.
Sharon was born at the Shoal Lake Hospital on October 26, 1954 to Stephen and Margaret Waytowich. She graduated in 1975 with a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education from the University of Manitoba. After graduating, she worked at Mony Life and CP Rail. During her employment at CP Rail, after a health issue affected her eyesight, her interests shifted and she began studying holistic healing and herbal medicine. This new chapter took Sharon on many trips to conferences and workshops, fulfilling her passion for reading and continually learning everything she could about healing others and herself. Sharon opened her own business, Naturally Yours, where she specialized in helping not only humans but animals as well.
Sharon had a real love for animals, which lead to the family relocating to acreage in Lorette, Manitoba where they lived for 22 years. Here, they raised horses, cats, dogs, goats, and chickens. What started as a hobby farm quickly grew into another business venture for Sharon where the family helped breed high quality, warmblood horses, which were sold across North America.
Sharon was a very spirited soul and would go all out in many things in her life. In the past year, she took up a passion for succulent plants. Every morning she would greet them with a smile and a “good morning.” As with many of her passions, a couple of plants quickly grew into a jungle with plants in every room of the house. She loved when her two grandsons would come visit and sing and dance for her. She could watch them for hours play with their favorite race car track, which they would assemble throughout her house.
The family would like to thank VIP Homecare and all those who helped care for Sharon, many of whom became close friends. Special thank you to Health Care Aides Catherine, Samara, Bunmi, Magdelena, Barb and Mayanie.
Keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held on November 10, 2023 at Coutu Funeral Chapel at 2:00pm at 680 Archibald St. Winnipeg.
