OBIT SharonSweet

November 9, 1955 – August 9, 2013
Resident of Palo Alto

Sharon, daughter of Lynne Sweet of Los Altos, passed away peacefully due to a serious injury and further complications.

She graduated from Los Altos High School in 1972. She was hard working, artistic, creative, loved gardening and loved people. Every year at Easter and Christmas she helped her mother deliver plants to members of Los Altos United Methodist Church who could no longer drive. They also worked together for many years as volunteers at the Los Altos Art and Wine Festival.

Sharon was a long-time fan of Stanford football, S. F Giants and S.F. 49’ers. She is now at peace and will be missed. Private services have been held.
