Obituary for Sharon Wesely

Sharon Ann Wesely, 66-years-old, entered into Eternal Life with her Savior Jesus Christ, on Friday, May 6, 2022, surrounded by her family. After her valiant fight with Breast Cancer in 2012, Sharon’s battle resumed in May 2020 with Stage 4 Endometrial Cancer. Her strong will to live, unwavering faith in God, and the love and prayers of family, friends, and many supporters carried her through the last two years of treatment. Even throughout her own struggle with cancer, she never missed an opportunity to celebrate and care for her family until the very last day.

Sharon was born on September 16, 1955 to Ben & Irene Wesely. Her mother passed away from cancer when she was 18 in 1973. Ben later married Marge Watson in 1981. Sharon was the oldest of 2 children, forever cherishing the friendship she had with her little brother, Dan Wesely who resides in Morse Bluff across from her childhood home.

After graduating from North Bend Central High School, she worked as a Secretary for the Popcorn Plant in North Bend, NE until 1976. After her first born arrived, she stayed home to care for her own children, along with many of her friends’ children until 1985 when she became a Traffic Coordinator at Valmont Industries, where she retired from in December 2019.

Throughout Sharon’s life she maintained a sweet, caring demeanor that won the trust and hearts of everyone who knew her. Possessing a true servant’s heart, Sharon faithfully cared for family and friends through delicious cooking & baking from scratch, photographing many players at ballgames and dance competitions, and sharing her love and passion for scrapbooking. She never missed an opportunity to attend her grandkids events, even throughout her illness. A woman of faith and the heart of the family, she lived her tireless Christian example by attending Bible Study Fellowship & spending countless hours journaling and coloring scripture, while listening to her favorite albums – Michael Bublé’ and Carrie Underwood. Though her life was shorter than we ever anticipated, she left the greatest legacy to her family, a legacy of character and faith - for which we are forever grateful.
