Sharon Marie Perry, a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away on Thursday, July 23, 2020 in Meridian, Idaho.
Sharon was born in Boston, Massachusetts on March 25, 1949 to Muriel and Jim Monahan joining a brother Jimmy and a sister Susan. She graduated from Bishop Fenwick Catholic High School and then received her bachelor’s degree in education from Salem State College. In her teen years, for a brief period, she attended a modeling and etiquette school. Through the years she held many jobs, her most recent and the one she was most proud of was working for Citibank, from which she retired after 16 years. While working there she earned a Star Player Award of which she was very proud.
Sharon had a huge passion for gardening and flowers. At one point she was a president of a gardening club. She loved to join her love of arts and crafts with her love of flowers by creating beautiful flower arrangements. She loved flowers of all kinds, especially the flower called the “Rose of Sharon.” She was particularly proud of her pansies which were known to blossom every year and were quite large.
Sharon had a son, Nathan Snow, through a previous marriage whom she loved dearly. She married Robert “Bob” Perry on July 4th and they enjoyed 24 good long years together.
Sharon was an early adopter of the “Pay It Forward” idea which was taught to her by her father Jim Monahan. It was her belief that “if you can do something to help somebody, and don’t expect anything in return, then you’ve made their day.” This is the motto that Sharon lived by and represents her kindness to those around her.
Sharon is survived by her husband Bob, her son Nathan, a stepson Aaron, a sister Susan, her beloved dog Mugsy, as well as nieces and nephews, and all those she made feel like family. She is preceded in death by her previous husband Kenneth Snow, brother Jimmy Monahan, and her parents Muriel and Jim Monahan.
