Sharon Lee Smith passed away on February 8th, after a fierce battle with pancreatic cancer.
She was born on March 28, 1942 in Iowa to Orville and Gladys Leach. She met her beloved husband Jim in Bandon, Oregon. They were married on July 1, 1957 in Newport and made their home in Logsden raising four beautiful children.
Sharon was a contract mail carrier for 37 years in the Benton and Lincoln County, retiring her route in 2007. She was very talented in many ways; she was an amazing cake decorator as well as an oil and acrylic paint artist.
Sharon was a force to be reckoned with. She had a zest for life and new things at any given moment, with an endless passion for traveling. Sharon and Jim enjoyed many road trips throughout the United States over the years. Her most recent travels were to Cancun and Hawaii. She found great joy in spending time with family, friends and her grandchildren.
Sharon was preceded in death by her husband Jim of 55 years, and son Kenneth. She is survived by son Glenn Smith of Logsden, OR, son David Smith of Eagle Creek, OR, daughter Carrie Schadewitz (Rick) of McMinnville, OR; grandchildren Kenneth Smith (Melissa), Aaryn Fredrick (Earl), Drew Anderson (Melissa); and five great grandchildren.
