Obituary of Sharon Anne Brough

With great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Sharon Anne Brough, on August 3rd, 2020, at 73. She passed away peacefully at the Milton District Hospital with family by her side. Sharon was a dedicated and loving wife to the love of her life David, who passed away much too early at the young age of 37. Sharon was a devoted mother to her three sons – Dave (Jane) of Milton, Jim of Etobicoke and Mike (Arla) of Beeton. She loved spending time with each of her 7 grandchildren – Sean, Nicole, Delaney, Sarah, Jacob, Mason and Levi. Sharon was beloved by her brother Ron (predeceased) and sisters Dona (Bob), Debbie (Bill), Jackie and Joan ( Michael) and many nieces and nephews. Sharon was born in Regina to her parents John and Venus Mandziak and moved with her family to Toronto, eventually settling in Mimico. As a young mother, she focused her time on taking care of her family, developing a passion for gardening and baking. Sharon developed a reputation for her fantastic desserts and no family gathering was complete without a few of her fantastic pies, cheesecakes, or those marshmallow squares. We were never really sure if it was David’s automotive knowledge, Sharon’s baking, or the backyard pool that brought people to the house, but there were always lots of visitors and people were always welcome. With the sudden passing of her husband, David Sr. in 1982 Sharon showed her tremendous strength and resilience in keeping her family and home together. With 3 growing and adventurous boys she first found work at the Dry Cleaners on Brown's line close to home and worked there for a few years until she got her driver's license and moved on to banking as a customer service representative. She studied for her mutual funds license and eventually ended up working for RBC where she retired from. She had an appetite for saving money, which allowed her the financial freedom for her favourite retirement past time – shopping! Sharon never missed an opportunity to visit her niece Selena in the US with her sister Dona and niece Nadine, always coming home with treasures for her loved ones. Sharon loved to read romance novels and would rather purchase another bookcase to store her collection overflow than get rid of any of them. Sharon had a warm sense of humour and loved to share stories about when the 3 boys were young, barely being able to get the words out when telling the story about the boys making each other laugh by exploding eggs in the fridge, or making a butter coated slide on the kitchen floor. Her laughter was always contagious. She enjoyed socializing with family and friends, having lunch at the Lunchbox Café and was a fabulous euchre player. Even while her memory seemed to be failing, she never failed to pull out a surprise trick. Sharon had a warm smile for everyone she met, and always left an impression.
