BLACKBURN, Sharon Louise, 74, Tantallon. It is with geat sadness that Mark and Tammy announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great – grandmother. Mom passed away peacefully at the QEII – VG hospital at the age of 74, after a brief battle with cancer. Mom was predeceased by her loving husband of 45 years, Desmond; and her parents, Hugh and Dorothy Cooke. Mom leaves behind her children, Tammy (Kevin), Mark (Jennifer); four Grandchildren, Amber(Zack), Laura (Shondel) Morgan (Dylan), Ryan (Danielle); and four great-grandchildren, Jaxon, Dawson, Liam and Jazzy. She also leaves behind sisters, Janice (Rick), Diane, Debby (Ed); and brothers, Hugh (Doreen), Wayne (Edyth). Mom asked that a special “Thank you for being my friend” go to Dorothy, Sylvia, Madeline and Patty she loved dearly. As per mom’s request there will be no service and a private burial at a later date, when she will be laid to rest with dad. A very special thank you to the doctors and nurses in the Palliative care unit, who made moms stay comfortable and treated her like family. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society in moms name.
