September 18, 1949 ~ September 16, 2020 (Age 70)
Sharon Elizabeth Martin, age 70, of Charlotte, NC passed away peacefully at Atrium Main Hospital in Charlotte, NC on September 16th of Covid-19. She had previously been a resident of Huntersville Oaks Nursing Home in Huntersville, NC. Sharon was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Mary Geoffrion and her brother, Steven Geoffrion of Orlando, FL. She is survived by her daughter, Laura Broomall, of Arlington, TX, her son, Alex Melnick, of Charlotte, NC, her grandchildren, Jessica and Jacob Dillon and her great grandson, Troy Melnick-Dillon.
Sharon had a love of nature and of animals. She mainly enjoyed tigers and other big cats especially when she would drive her wheelchair down the sidewalk with a tiger chasing beside her down the fence line. She would have gone back and forth for hours playing with the tiger if she could.
Sharon made many friends with the staff at Huntersville Oaks. Loria, Ellen, Victoria, and Matthew had a special spot in her heart.
A devoted Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother, she always showed her love and strength no matter what obstacles were thrown her way. She cherished every outing, every visit, and every phone call and always looked forward to the next, despite the health conditions that she faced daily.
Per her wishes, the ashes will be scattered in an area of scenic beauty in the NC mountains.
