It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sharon LeNeveu of Lundbreck, Alberta, who, after a courageous three-year battle with cancer, was called to be with the Lord on December 2, 2014 at the age of 65 years.
From an early age, Sharon displayed selfless acts of generosity and kindness. She experienced many trials and successes in her lifetime but her greatest joy came from her relationship with Christ and the devotion and love of her husband, Rick. Her life was truly blessed and she was grateful for all she had.
She was unique and wonderful with many talents and interests. Sharon was a skilled horsewoman who not only rode dressage, but also instructed others in the discipline. More recently, she taught herself how to spin and weave – she became so proficient that she was often asked to demonstrate her talents at the Kootenay Brown Pioneer Village in Pincher Creek. Sharon also enjoyed quilting, gardening and cooking and was a proud member of the Lundbreck Seniors’ Centre. Her homemade pasta was always a favourite with her family and friends. Sharon loved to travel and she and Rick were fortunate enough to take many trips before she passed away.
Sharon was also fearless and a force to be reckoned with! She had a strong and unwavering faith and wanted everyone to realize how much God loves us all. She treasured her family and was the happiest when spending time with them. Her kind and loving spirit will be missed by all who knew her; may we find comfort in knowing that she is now amongst the angels in heaven.
Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life include her loving husband, Rick LeNeveu of Lundbreck, AB; her step-children, Jason (Christine) LeNeveu of Eaganville, ON, Lisa Ashton of Didsbury, AB and Richard (Nancy) LeNeveu of Nanton, AB; her treasured grandchildren, Alexander, Shelby, Gerran, Ken, Matthew, Tim, Michelle, Serena and Dillon; her best friend, Liz Coley; and her brothers, John (Esther) Riosa of London, ON and Roy (Cathy) Riosa of ON.
She was predeceased by her parents, Lidio and Lydia Riosa and her beloved dog, Pepper.
The family wishes to extend a very special thank-you to the wonderful doctors, nurses and caregivers at the Crowsnest Pass Hospital for their compassion and dedication.
