Sharon Kay Ela Deskins Hoisington

Our sweet Sharon passed away peacefully on October 15th, 2021 with her husband Steve Hoisington at her side. Loved ones were fortunate enough to visit Sharon in the last days of her life and offer comfort during these troubled times. Sharon was born on October 11, 1950 in Wichita Falls, Texas to Patsy “Mumsy” Brown & Pac A. “Popsy” Brown.

Sharon had a life of many different homes until she finally settled in Utah in 2011. She could proudly tell you about all the cities and states in which she had lived all her life. The list was impressive, but she always felt that Texas and Utah were the two states she cared about. Sharon graduated from Farmington High School in Farmington, New Mexico in 1969, where she met and married her first husband.

Sharon raised four children and one grandchild and always said that being a mother was the greatest joy of her life. Her children, grandchildren, and other family members were always in Sharon’s hearts and prayers. Not only was Sharon a devoted wife and mother, she also worked hard outside of the home. Sharon has held many jobs over the years, but unfortunately has never been able to settle into one job for too long due to her frequent relocation. Sharon worked as a bank teller, retailer, school bus driver, teaching assistant, and eventually met her second husband, Steve Hoisington, while she was working at a local Salt Lake City bakery. She was especially proud of her school bus driver days in Springville, Arizona because she loved the fact that people thought she was too small for the job. Sharon was a petite lady, but don’t let her size fool you! She had the strength and courage to take on any challenge and insisted on achieving what she set out to do.

Sharon was an exceptional seamstress and quilter. She blessed many loved ones with a handmade quilt or blanket. Later in life, she even started sewing children’s clothes for sale in boutiques. Sharon was a huge patroness of fabric shops and would have – literally! – be able to open their own fabric shop from home.

When Sharon wasn’t in a fabric store, she was busy with one of her many other hobbies. She loved gardening and could easily spend a day browsing her yard. Sharon was a keen reader and loved a house full of books. She walked daily and was known to take long walks when it was necessary to clear her head. In her youth, Sharon hiked Pikes Peak, an accomplishment she always remembered with pride. Sharon loved traveling and meeting new people, which was good because she had to pack and move to new places all her life. A trip to France and England was stellar for Sharon, and later in life road trips back east.

Sharon loved a nice, long conversation with a loved one, a sweet treat over a hot cup of coffee, conversing with new acquaintances, morning glory muffins, dozing off on the couch, the possibilities in a piece of cloth, The Beatles, gluten-free tacos from Chiptole , all about Hallmark and a family dinner at The Red Iguana. Sharon didn’t like long, cold winter days, white, creamy food, any illness – no matter what size – that could happen to loved ones, improper use of her good sewing scissors, newfangled technology, cold feet, and life far from family and friends. Her family cherishes all of the good times and memories, and they don’t like a future without Sharon.

Sharon was a woman of tremendous faith and found great comfort and joy in her later years in her The Well Church in Sandy, Utah. Sharon was an open-minded, fun-loving person who loved this community and was warmly hugged by it. She loved her volunteer position caring for “her little ones” in the Church. Sharon was a nana and “little ma” to many happy children across Utah. Sharon would marry her second husband, Steve Hoisington, on June 27, 2014 in her beloved Church and forever cement the Church’s special place in her heart. The couple happily served on a missionary trip to Cofradia, Mexico. Sharon relied heavily on the support of her church during difficult times, and her family will always be very grateful and grateful.

Sharon leaves behind her husband Harland Steven Hoisington, sisters Teresa Richmond (Gary) and Diana Watson (Ed) and their great-aunt Velma Wyatt and their children Michelle Morley, Danielle Morley-Pickens (Justin), Keith Morley (Jamie), Scott Morley (Jennifer ) and their two stepchildren Joseph and Molly Hoisington. Sharon’s heart was never fuller than when she was with her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Grandchildren: David, Rick, Justin, Anthony, Sammy and Addy and great-grandchildren Lex and Salem.

In death preceded her beloved grandmother Deanie Decker, her beloved mother Patsy Brown, her beloved father Pac A. Brown, and other beloved aunts and uncles.

Finally, the family acknowledges the love and care Sharon has shown over the past nine months while staying with Avamere in Mountain Ridge, Ogden, Utah. We appreciate the respect, dignity and attention you have shown to Sharon’s last days.

Instead of flowers, the family asks for donations to them Alzheimer’s Association in Sharon’s name.
