“We will hold you in our hearts until we can hold you again in heaven.”
On Saturday, January 9th, 2021 at 12:05 a.m. our beautiful and beloved angel was granted her wings and called home. Sharon Ann Brandner, age 76, passed away peacefully with family by her side at St. Luke’s Hospital in Meridian, Idaho.
Sharon was born October 13th, 1944 in Los Angeles, California to Helen and Lester Westphal, where she spent her childhood. Sharon Ann Westphal married Larry Brandner on January 18th, 1963 in Los Angeles, California, and together they had four loving children. They eventually divorced in 1975. Sharon is survived by Michael, Stacy (Del) Coleman, Tina (K.C.) Lane and James. She loved all of her children and did everything she could to provide for them as a single mother. Sharon worked in the restaurant industry and later became an accountant at Walmart in Nampa, Idaho where she retired. She loved people and enjoyed her work. She never met a stranger or failed to put a smile on the face of anyone around her.
Sharon had a passion for dancing and roller skating. She was also an animal lover. Her favorite lunch was Kentucky Fried Chicken followed by fries dipped in a chocolate milkshake while she watched the birds that frequented her beautiful custom birdhouse that hung outside her window.
Another special part of her day was spending time on her iPad. It was her way of keeping up with her grandchildren. Scott, Krista, Gregory, Tarah, Ryan, Sean, Quinton, Kam, Kole, Hayden and Hallie all meant the world to her. So did her sixteen adoring great-grandchildren and beloved friends.
Sharon was preceded in death by her parents Helen and Lester Westphal as well as Uncle Ernie and Aunt Dot, who were very special and influential in her and her children lives.
In lieu of flowers the family is requesting that donations be made in her name to the Idaho Humane Society. A private family celebration of life for Sharon is planned for a later date. XOXO
