Sharon JoAnn Ellenberg was born in Seattle, WA on March 10, 1940 and finished her journey on August 19, 2019. She was surrounded by her loving family at home. Sharon is survived by her daughters and son in laws Laurie and Jeff Strickland, Kandy and Mike Birdwell, Kelly Fischer, step children Ed and Kim Ellenberg, Jeanne Ellenberg, Brenda Ellenberg and Cindy and Jeff Nelson.
She will be forever missed by her grand children Jason Strickland, Joshua Birdwell, Lindsey Strickland, Krystal Strickland, Kylee & Jake Schurmann, Bailey Nelson, Amy Ellenberg, Ashlie Nelson, Shaeli Nelson, her great grand children Ryan Person and Portland & Elliot Schurmann and her brother Robbie Ridalls and Margie Mieske. Sharon was preceded in death by her loving husband Ronald Francis Ellenberg of 34 years and her beloved brother Harold (Billy) Ridalls.
Sharon grew up in the Seattle area most of her life. She raised her three daughters in Renton and worked for the Boeing Company for 25 years. Sharon’s love of music began at an early age when she played the piano while her dad played the sax for family and friends. Sharon dedicated her life to her three daughters, her beloved husband Ron, her grandchildren and lets not forget her fur babies. If you knew Sharon you would find her dressed to the hilt, with all her jewelry, microphone in one hand and a Diet Pepsi in the other, dancing and singing around the house with her family and friends.
Sharon’s greatest gift was her beautiful smile, her huge loving, giving heart. She will be forever missed by her family and friends. When you see a butterfly in your future think of Sharon. Love you always Mom, Grandma and friend.
Memorial Service will be held on Saturday October 5, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. at The Summit Church 920 Roosevelt Ave Enumclaw, Wa. 98022
