Ann Colette Sharer, 73, of New Kensington passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, March 17, 2022. She was born in Newport, Rhode Island November 25, 1948 to the late Horatio Henry and Agnes Louise (Sevic) Russell.
Ann was a graduate of Leechburg Class of 1966 and married the love of her life, Clifford, shortly after graduation on June 11, 1966. She was an active member of the Order of the Eastern Star for nearly four decades where she played a vital role, most recently with Kittanning Chapter 277, and was also an active member with the East Kensington Community Circle (EKCC), holding office of Vice President. Being a lively participant within our community was of great importance to Ann, although her family was most dear to her heart and gave great value in her daily life. Ann was a caretaker at her core and made sure everyone she knew and loved had everything they needed. She will always be embraced for her tender heart, grace, and fierce loyalty to her family and community. In her free time, she found great joy in shopping, antiquing, kayaking, biking, and camping with her husband.
She is survived by her beloved husband of 55 years, Clifford H. Sharer Jr.; much-loved daughter, Elesa Sharer; adored grandchildren, Lauren Elizabeth Kopp, Leah Renee Kopp, and Ryan Joseph Kopp; and sister, Louise M. Doutt-Pfister.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Clarine E. Kummick.
