Obituary: Sanders, Sharon

SANDERS, Sharon (Age 72) December 14, 1940 is when she came into our lives. Her parents were William and Madge McKern (Jones). She graduated from Metaline Falls High School in 1959 with the honor of being her class prom queen. She married Bob Westfall with whom she had four children. She is survived by Monica and Brian Aiken; William and Gina Westfall; William and Robin Sharp; Justin and Jill Davis; nine grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her little brother Dave and Val McKern of Kettle Falls, WA. Sherry loved all things Elvis and all things purple. She was passionate about flower gardens and antique shopping. She became an avid Spokane Chiefs fan and didn’t miss a home game, even through her illness. With tenacity, strength and dignity, she fought a battle against cancer that ended on September 21, 2013. We will miss her beautiful smile and sweet demeanor; she was truly loved by all who knew her. Donations can be made to Hospice of North Idaho, or the American Cancer Society. Yates Funeral Home, Coeur d’ Alene, ID has been entrusted with the care of final arrangements. Please visit Sherry’s online memorial and sign her guestbook at YATES FUNERAL HOMES, COEUR D’ALENE, ID
