We sadly announce the sudden passing of a loving wife and mother on November 28, 2015, at the age of 61 years.
Sharleen is remembered and cherished by her husband of 42 years, Ron and her 26 year old son, Dennis.
She is predeceased by her mother and father and is survived by her brother, Michael Hryciuk and his family in Calgary.
She is also remembered by her many friends and workmates at the Ministry of Children and Families, The Baha’i Community and Shuswap Outdoors.
Sharleen was a caring friend, a passionate supporter of foster parents, a talented quilter, a voracious reader and she loved to hike.
The Marchand family expresses deep gratitude to her physician, Dr. Warren Bell, for his compassion and care over Sharleen’s many years of illness.
By request, an informal remembrance will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be sent through Sharleen’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com
