Over the years Sharron worked for a variety of companies, including: Melcor Developments, Woods and Robson, Smitty’s, Griffiths Ford and Canuck Amusements. Throughout her working life, she was involved in the accounting/bookkeeping side of the business which allowed her to develop and maintain numerous friendships with the people she worked with and met. Sharron married Kenneth Holmes on August 31, 1973 in Rimbey, AB. They were happily married for 43 years. Sharron’s most treasured time was spent with family and friends.  She loved great conversation and memories made over a great meal.
