Sharon Neem Celebration of Life

My dear friend Sharon Neem passed away on Wed. April 19, 2023 from heart disease.

There will be a celebration of life for Sharon on Saturday, May 20 at 11:00am in Stanwood at the 

Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center

27130 102nd Street 
Stanwood, WA 98292


For more details you may contact her son Brian Ferguson:

Sharon was active in the Chief Whatcom Chapter of the D.A.R. and served in numerous leadership roles over the years and promoted the DAR with tremendous enthusiasm.

Sharon moved to Blaine, WA in the early 1990s. She immediately became active in the Blaine Senior Center and spearheaded

many activities to benefit seniors in the community. She was the essence of a positive, can-do attitude. 

She was also a former president of the Whatcom Genealogical Society and enjoyed serving as the society’s newsletter editor before moving to Stanwood in 2022.

Sharon was the first person I met when I moved to Skagit County in 1987. We quickly became close friends, celebrating weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and travels to the LDS Library in Salt Lake City for genealogy conferences, etc. Sharon got me interested in genealogy and also sparked my interest in reactivating my membership with the DAR.  I will miss her deeply in my life. Sharon celebrated her 82 birthday on March 1, 2023…the last time I spoke with her. 

Her sons asked that anyone who has connections with the organizations Sharon enjoyed being involved in to help by notifying them of her passing. Thank you.

With sadness,
