Sharon Ann Laban, 70, of Walker, Michigan passed away on Thursday, April 8th, 2021.

Sharon grew up in Martin's Ferry OH where she attended St. Johns High School and graduated in 1968. She then enrolled in a nursing school in WV to become a registered nurse. Upon certification, Sharon returned to Martin's Ferry and worked at the local hospital. Marriage took her to Columbus, OH a short time later, where she was employed at Mt. Carmel Hospital and a private pediatric practice. Life's experiences brought her and her children to Grand Rapids in the late 1970's. She worked at Butterworth Hospital and periodically as a visiting nurse.

In her later years, Sharon enjoyed a good novel, playing scrabble, ice cream cones in Comstock Park, our many trips to Grand Traverse Bay, planting flowers, trying new recipes and she even became an avid Tigers fan for a few years. But I believe one of her greatest joys was when she was well enough to attend her son's wedding in Hilton Head SC. Some of her dinners there consisted of 18-24 oysters on the half shell.

Sharon is survived by 2 children, Megan (Arron) Miller of Austin, TX and Brady (Danielle) Schmitz of Byron Center; 2 grandchildren, Allie Miller and Judah Schmitz. 1 Brother, Jerry Mcdermott of Jenison, and Sharons significant other Bruce Laskosky of Walker.

Cremation has taken place and a private gathering was held.

Sharon told me a few years ago that her and I had lived a lifetime in a decade. She's right!

May God grant you peace, TuTu. Love Always, Your Cello's.

A special thanks to the surgeons at Cleveland Clinic for giving her to us for 3 more months. It was wonderful.
