Sharon Anne GoetkenJune 29, 1946 ~ May 12, 2017 (age 70)
Sharon Anne Goetken, 70 years of Watson, passed away on May 12, 2017 at Humboldt District Hospital. Sharon was born June 29, 1946 to Edward and Anne (nee Podmoroff) Cullen at Kamsack. The family later moved to B.C. when she was quite young. Sharon and Gerald met through friends and they had an instant connection. Gerald became her soul mate. Sharon knew Gerald was a keeper by the way he treated her dogs Jobie, Kaylie, Applejack and Coco. She moved back to Saskatchewan to be with Gerald, a province she thoroughly loved and all that it had to offer. Sharon enjoyed driving around the back roads observing the animals and birds that are unique to the prairies. She spent many hours outdoors in her large manicured vegetable and flower gardens. Sharon was an amazing cook and reaped the rewards of her garden by processing and canning for the winter. Gerald’s favourite dish was her weekly prime rib roast. She loved to relax and enjoy a morning coffee on the deck, listening to the birds, in the summer. In the winter she would also relax by looking out her window and watching the deer and other animals passing through their yard. Sharon was also highly involved with sports and golfing. Sharon and Gerald shared a passion for travelling; they traveled all over Canada from Alaska to Newfoundland. They also enjoyed many camping trips in Canada and the U.S.A. Sharon will be remembered by her friends for her loud and boisterous laugh which came right from her belly. She will be always loved and remembered by her faithful companion of 12 years Gerald Thacyk: Sharon will also be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her two sons, four grandchildren, sisters, extended family and many good friends. At Sharon’s request a private family service will be held at a later date. Memorial Donations in Sharon’s memory can be made to the Humboldt SPCA.
