Sharon Hoisington

January 23, 1945 — September 13, 2022

Sharon Elaine Hoisington, 77, passed away at her home in Clifton, Colorado, on

September 13, 2022.

Sharon was born January 23, 1945, in Uravan, CO, to Lyle and Edith Gilbert.

The family moved to Rifle for a short time, and then to Fruita, where Sharon lived

the rest of her life.

Sharon attended Fruita area schools and graduated from Fruita High School

in 1963. Following graduation, she married Fred Hoisington in September of that

year. They had two sons, Freddie and Charlie.

Along with her roles of housewife and mother, Sharon cleaned residential

homes in the Fruita area. She was active in the Fruita Lions’ Club and in the

Fruita Christian Church, where she developed some life-long friendships. She

served as janitor of the church for several years. When her mother’s health

declined, Sharon became her live-in caregiver for several years until her mother

passed away in 2006.

Sharon was preceded in death by her husband and her parents. She is

survived by her sons Freddie and Charlie, three grandchildren—Crystal, Lloyd, and

Riley—and three great grand-children—Evie, Zander, and Grayson.

A memorial service and reception will be held at the Clifton Christian

Church, 3241 F 1/4 Rd, on Saturday, October 1, 11:00 am. Snyder Grand Valley
