On July 31st, 2023, Heaven gained a one of a kind angel. Sharon Schikowsky passed away peacefully surrounded by her family and close friends. She was 65 years old. Sharon will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 46 years, Matt Schikowsky; daughters and grandchildren, Lana Haider (Quinn), Sara Matcyk (Myron), and Brenna Baluk (Don), grandchildren (Alexa and Brynn Haider, Emme and Bennett Matcyk, and Brielle and Zander Baluk), sisters, Joanne Obuck (Gordon) and Bonnie Grunert (Kent), and by her cousins, nieces, nephews, colleagues and many friends. She was predeceased by her son Mathew, father Joseph and mother Lillian Yurkoski.
Sharon was born on June 11, 1958 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. She attended the Yorkton Regional High School, where she became a star both on the volleyball court and track team. In 1976 Sharon met the love of her life Mathew. They married, and started their life journey together. Sharon began working at the Yorkton Union Hospital in 1981 starting out in Admitting and finishing her career as the OR Booking Clerk. She also took on the role of keeping the doctors in line.
Sharon enjoyed being around people so much that she volunteered her time flipping pancakes and serving people in the community as a Lioness.
Sharon would light up any room she was in. Her laugh was contagious and she would be heard before she could be seen! She was always happy and upbeat. Her door was always open as she was so welcoming to all.
Sharon was passionate about her cats, and when she wasn’t filling her home with warmth and kindness, she could be found in her recliner watching Survivor. She never missed a season! She also enjoyed watching curling, tennis, the Blue Jays and Riders (when they were winning) and anything on TLC and Netflix.
With Sharon’s passing, we now have a void that will never be filled. We will always think of her fondly whenever we smell Tabu perfume; and take comfort in her final words, “Love you all.”
