Sharon was born in Lethbridge May 8, 1940 to Rachel and Leland Wilson of Burdett Alberta. She attended school in Burdett and Bow Island. On August 14, 1957, she married the love of her life, Ralph Bateman. They started their married life in a one-room shed behind the home of Ralph’s parents eventually moving down the street to “the little house”. It was in this home that they welcomed their 3 children Debbie, Dawn and Dale – otherwise known as the 3 D’s.
Bow Island was their home in every way Sharon was part of many clubs and committees including Royal Purple, Pivot Fair, the Library board, minor hockey and Girl Guides to name a few. She was always by Dad’s side as he performed his mayoral duties at various functions over the years. She moved away a few years ago to be closer to family but her heart remained in the town she called home most of her life. Sharon worked at the Bank of Montreal, drove the school bus, and worked at the local Bean plant but the job she adored most and was best at was being a mom, grandmother and Gigi.
