Born in Denver, Colorado on May 14, 1948 and spending the majority of her life in Albuquerque New Mexico, Sharon led a remarkable life filled with great academic and career accomplishments along with cherished family memories.

Sharon's impressive educational journey which culminated in a Doctorate in Toxicology, and her passion for research, led to publications in prestigious academic journals.

Sharon started working for Sandia National laboratory in 1984 as a board-certified Toxicologist doing Industrial Hygiene work. She later became a Nuclear Safety Basis Manager and Manager for Weapons Quality/Assessment. Sharon retired from Sandia roughly 25 years later and became a consultant at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Life with Sharon was always an adventure. She shared her love for the great outdoors with her children and grandchildren, creating enduring family bonds through their experiences. Sharon loved to fish, hike, camp, rock climb and ski, but most of all, Sharon loved horseback riding.

Sharon made a lasting impact on her community, especially on the youth, with her involvement in various activities and her willingness to offer guidance and support. Her kindness and generosity were evident to all who knew her, and her gracious demeanor touched the lives of many.

She is survived by her brother David Walker (Nancy Walker); three children; daughter Lindsey McGuire (JD McGuire); sons Lee Felicetti and Brad Felicetti (Erin Felicetti); and three Grandchildren, Jameson Felicetti, Reagan and Ava McGuire.
