Sharon Yvonne Marie Friess

The family of Sharon Yvonne Marie Friess are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Sharon passed away after a short battle with cancer at the Regina Pasqua Hospital on Sunday, September 17, 2023.

Sharon was predeceased by her parents Henri and Winona Morrissette; parents-in-law Emmanuel and Evelyn Friess; birth mother Lucy Cadotte and brother Roger Morrissette. Sharon is survived by her loving husband of 51 years, Milton; children Michelle (Marlon), Keith (Kelly), Devon (Merandah), Jason (Tracy), McKayla, Mackenzie, Kayla, Lisa and Leroy; grandchildren Dylan, Eric, Amy, Ashlynn, Brody, Brooklynn, Gredin, Tirrell, Saxyn, Auzzi, Ethan, Hanna and great-grandson Jax. She will also be missed and remembered by extended family and friends.

Sharon was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on February 17, 1954, and was adopted by Henri and Winona Morrissette in Emo, Ontario where she attended school, grew up and met the love of her life, Milton. They moved away from Ontario and set roots in Regina, SK before settling down in Pilot Butte, SK. Sharon worked for Sask Liquor and Gaming Association for 29 years and was the Chair of the SGEU Bargaining Unit for SLGA which was a passion of hers. She was an advocate for all staff at SLGA and only a phone call away for anyone who needed help. Sharon and Milton were foster parents for the past 29 years and during that time had over 90 children in their care and received the Foster Parent Award for her dedication over the years. Hearing the laughter and footsteps, sometimes running in the house, put a smile on her face.

Sharon’s grace, dedication and personality will be missed by all who had the honor to know her. The family would like to thank the staff of the Pasqua Hospital Palliative Care Unit 3A for the amazing care and attention they provided to Sharon while she was there.

A Celebration of Life will be arranged at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Allan Blair Cancer Clinic, or the Pasqua Hospital Palliative Care Unit 3A.

I met Sharon at Prairie School for Women’s conference through the union. We became friends taking the same course. We connected on Facebook and have support each other all these years. RIP beautiful lady. ❤️

I’ve just learned of Sharon’s passing. As a cousin of hers, I spent many summer holidays with her uncle Henri, and auntie Nonie and Emo Ontario. She was the one that pierced my ears. She told me it was gonna be all right, as she put the sewing needle to my ear. The first ear piercing came out right and we laughed how easy it was, However the second one, not so much, but second one she had a bad aim as we were laughing so much. so to this day I have not gotten it fixed. one of my ear holes is higher than the other one, and she said oh no, we can fix that. I wasn’t gonna let her try. Sharon I often think about the times I rode that bus to Emo, the time we tried to hitch hike to Fort Frances and the cops picked us up, and your dad was so mad. I have so many memories of our times. I’m so proud of what you & Milt have done with your lives. Rest in peace, my dear cousin.
