SHARON ROSE OBBAGY, beloved wife of Les, and loving mother of Sheree, passed away December 7, at the age of 70, after a courageous battle with ALS/FTD.

Born March 31st, 1945 to Verda & Harold Farries, she grew up in Del Bonita with her six siblings Lyle, Duane, Lynn, Lowell, Rennaye & Shannon. She married Leslie Obbagy in June 1965, sharing 52 incredible years. In 1971, they were blessed with their daughter Sheree. Les & Sheree were her total life focus, as were her family/friends. Their farm/ranch was filled with good laughs, hard work, loving memories & prairie sunsets. Big heart, warm smile, generous hugs and a genuine love for all describes her best.

Sharon’s life drastically changed in 2014 when her ailment was diagnosed as ALS (Lou Gehrig’s) plus FTD. She was graciously strong throughout her struggles, never knowing what each day might bring.

Sincere gratitude to all who assisted her. The family, friends, staff, doctors & volunteers all get huge thanks & Sharon would have been handing them out nonstop if she had been able with big hugs, sweet smiles and her favourite words “Thank you so much, & God bless you!”

Sharon truly appreciated flowers, donated to all causes & was supported greatly by the ALS Society, so you may donate as you wish.
