Sharon A. Vandewinckel

Williamson:  Age 73 died peacefully, in her sleep, Sunday, May 17, 2020.  She is preceded in death by her parents, John R. and Beulah I. Musso, as well as her brother Jon Michael Clemson.  She is survived by her loving, and supportive, husband of 54 years, Carl J.

Sharon was born in Niagara Falls on Monday, April 14,1947, raised in Ontario NY, and graduated from Wayne Central High school in 1965.  Besides caring for her family, she worked as an office manager at General Dynamics, a Dental office, and Motts Co., always with a strong work ethic.  Sharon volunteered for multiple organizations, such as the Williamson Volunteer Ambulance, the Boy Scouts of America, and a local community closet for those in need.  She was a dedicated and lifelong member of St Mary's of the Lake Catholic Church in Ontario, NY.  Sharon was loyal and generous to anyone she encountered.  She was a consummate giver, where Christmas was her favorite time of year. She enjoyed quiet time reading, crocheting, and watching the rain.  She enriched the lives of her family and friends with her joy of cooking and always planning the next family get together.
