Born in Saint John, New Brunswick on November 19th, 1943, Sharon was the beloved daughter of the late Loring and Annetta Melvin (nee Ferguson).

Cherished and much loved mother of Jeffrey Maguire (Tracey), Joel Maguire (Joanne), and Kristi Maguire (Calvin Hamilton).

Sharon was predeceased by one sister, four brothers and is survived by her brother Art Melvin, sister Joan Melvin, as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends.
Sharon had a passion for music that stemmed from her love of entertaining and connecting with others.

She also enjoyed engaging with others as a member of the Valley Cruisers Car Club. In her professional life, Sharon was an administrator with the town of Quispamsis for many years, after which she worked alongside her son Jeff in his financial services practice.
