Born on September 28, 1943 in Bridgeport she was the daughter of the late Frank and Angela (Christino) Nicolett MacLannan.
Sharon was a graduate of Central High School and graduated as an R.N. from St. Vincent’s School of Nursing. She was the epitome of a hands on, loving, compassionate nurse. She spent much of her time in geriatric nursing care and later administration at Pond Point Health Care and Milford Health Care namely. She was a Boy Scout Den Mother for her sons and a Brownie/Girl Scout Leader for her daughter. She later helped as a leader with her granddaughter’s Brownie/Girl Scout Troop.
She was an outstanding cook but also truly enjoyed the experience of going out to eat. She was a true fan of Neil Diamond, John Denver, the NY Yankees, the NE Patriots, and UCONN Women’s Basketball. She loved her family above all else, bringing them to Disney World and attending as many of her grandchildren’s sporting events as possible, yelling from the sidelines. She played an incredible and loving role in caring for her nephew and her grandchildren. She will be remembered as kind, loving, generous and full of life and laughter.
