Sharon K. Trueblood, 73, passed away peacefully in her home with family by her side from complications of PAH and COPD on May 24th, 2020 in Kent, WA. Sharon was born on June 14th, 1946 in St. Paul, Minnesota, and lived there most of her young life. She traveled to Anchorage, Alaska in 1977 with her husband and three young daughters and loved it so much that they sold their home in Minnesota along with most of their belongings, packed up their car and motorhome, and moved to Anchorage.
In 1987, she moved to Washington state, where she has remained ever since. She tried living in a warmer climate (Phoenix, AZ) for a year in 1992, but Washington called her back. Sharon worked for the City of Seattle and absolutely loved the work she did, and made several long-lasting friendships along the way. Her and her husband Rod loved to tour the nation in their RV, and often spent time at their favorite place on the Oregon coast or on the lake in Lincoln, WA.
