BRUNSWICK — Sharon Irene Bisson, 58, of Freeport, died peacefully Aug. 3 after a four-year battle with cancer. Through it all she was an inspiration as a wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
Born in North Conway, N.H., Sept. 17, 1952, a daughter of Alfred and Beryl (Woodbery) Monson, she grew up in Denmark, and graduated from Fryeburg Academy in 1970.
She loved the outdoors and enjoyed it year-round, hiking, camping, snow shoeing or cross-country skiing.
A gift for hospitality, she loved to bake and cook for her family, and was happiest when family and friends were around.
She will be remembered for her incredible smile, and the care and devotion she had for her husband and daughters. She was especially proud of her daughters, and later years brought the added joy of three grandchildren. With her openness, acceptance, support and positive encouragement, she understood the meaning of unconditional love.
Surviving are her husband of 28 years, Norman Bisson of Freeport; her daughter Jennifer Rivers and her husband Louis and their daughter Emily of Attleboro, Mass.,; her daughter Erica White and her husband Barry and their children, Taylor and Colby, of Freeport; her sister Gloria Douglass and her husband Gilbert of Bridgeton.
A memorial service and celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, Aug. 13, at 11 a.m., at the South Freeport Church, UCC, 98 South Freeport Road, Freeport.
Arrangements are by Lindquist Funeral Home, One Mayberry Lane, Yarmouth.
