Sharon graduated from Fashion Industries High School in 1964 and then went on to work for several companies before working and retiring from Con Edison in Brooklyn NY. Sharon had a strong love for her family. Sharon would always say, “I Love My Family” and, she truly proved her unconditional love for them.

Sharon had a strong love for God and demonstrated that in her daily life. Sharon’s favorite hobbies were traveling and as she called it buying her “Stuff” from the QVC/HSN network!

20 Condolences for Sharon Louise Boatwright

  • I love you Aunt Sharon ❤

  • Aunt Sharon will always be the true meaning of family to me, I will always love and cherish the moments she said “I Love You “ because I knew she meant it. I find myself still smiling when I see her face, because it will forever be with me. I Love You Aunt Sharon

  • As the sadness of my heart struggle to heal, I am rejoicing that Jehovah God has promised at Revelation 21:4, “death will be no more” and Acts 24:15 “there is going to be a resurrection “. We know that Jehovah God cannot lie. One day I will see my sister again.

  • Hello to the Boatwright family. Sharon was my cousin and I didn’t spend that much time around her. She knew my older sisters and they had a lot of nice things to say about her. My heart goes out to her family. Death is such a painful chapter in life. We were meant to live forever, but Adam and Eve disobeyed Jehovah. So death entered our lives. We have the hope for a resurrection. May the family take comfort in Jesus ransom sacrifice. The scriptures Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29.

  • My Dear Aunt Sharon,
    You surprised me with this one. I wasn’t ready, even tho I knew you wasn’t always feeling 100%. But, you would always put a smile on ya face. Which is in a permanent picture frame in my mind for eternity. I know how much you loved me, you showed and proved with such ease. I miss you already, a piece of me died the day you when home. But, I can still hear all of your words of support. I thank you and my mother for always patting me on the back and telling me how proud you guys were of me. That meant more than you could ever know. Thank you for being apart of my life and in the life of my children. I will forever love you Auntie Sharon. Your other son Prince!

  • May your heart soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. May you take comfort in knowing there is one more angel above us. Those we love don’t go away. They walk beside us every day. Walk in the peace of God.

  • My most sincere condolences to the Boatwright family on the passing of one of the most loving and caring people I know. Aunt Sharon was very special to me and always showed unconditional love for me whenever I was in her presence. She never ceased to scold me when I was wrong and always made sure I got it right before I walked away. She will be truly missed and I am saddened to know that I will never be able to hug and kiss her again but I do know this I am truly blessed to have another Heavenly Angel smiling down on us all with her heavenly wings in all her glory right next to her King😇 I love you Auntie you will be missed dearly ❤️💞😘

  • The loss of a loved one pains our heart. At John 11:35 Jesus gave way to tears at the death of his friend Lazarus. But what Jesus did next was to resurrect his friend. Jesus will also resurrect Sharon on a Paradise earth!

  • May Jehovah the God of All Comfort bring your hearts peace. 2Cor.1:3&4
    My heart is sad, but my hope is bright as I wait for Jehovah God the source of life to bring her back to a beautiful paradise home on Earth. Ps.37:9-11

  • My heartfelt condolences to the family and close friends of Sharon. May you each find comfort in your fond memories of special times with her, and also in God’s promise to soon “swallow up death forever” and “wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) While grief for the loss of Sharon is great, the joy you will have at welcoming her back in the earthly resurrection will be so much greater. (John 5:28,29; Mark 5:42)

  • My Dear Aunt Patsy and Aunt Lillian,

    Words fall short of expressing our sorrow for you at the loss of your dear sister and our dear Aunt Sharon. We know one of the saddest things someone can experience is the death of a loved one. It offers us so much relief to know that the Bible often compares death to sleep.-(Psalms 13:3) Knowing that just as a person who is asleep is unaware of what is happening around him, the knowledge that the dead are not conscious of anything is a soothing thought.

    May you take comfort in knowing the promise of hope we find in the Bible where it teaches that Jehovah God can awaken the dead as if from sleep and give them life again. At Acts 24:15 it says, “There is going to be a resurrection.” I’ve always found that scripture to be comforting.

    The Bible offers much needed comfort for all of us when we grieve. It offers us a great source of hope to know of God’s promise of bringing the dead back to life. What a joy to know that our loving God, Jehovah, promises a time when “he will swallow up death forever… and wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) What a loving and compassionate God to give us such a hope.

    We know you’ll hold on tight to your wonderful memories of Aunt Sharon as you look forward to seeing her again. Though we’re separated by distance, please know our arms are tightly wrapped around you. Our hearts are with you and the rest of our family, not only in this time of sorrow, but always.

    Much love always,
    Mitchell, Leslie, and Joi
