Sharon E. Willette
With profound sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Sharon E. Willette, 74, of Plattsburgh, N.Y. She passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family and only grandson on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019, at UVM Health Network CVPH in Plattsburgh. She was born on July 3, 1945, and grew up in Champlain, New York. Although Sharon left Champlain, her heart remained there.
Sharon was predeceased by her father, Theodore Hinerth, mother, Catherine (Jarvis) Rabideau, her brother, Theodore Hinerth Jr., sister, Patricia Underwood and sister, Elaine Garrow.
Sharon is survived by her daughters, Sue Rebideau and Michelle Collings and their spouses, Lance Rebideau and John Collings; one grandson, Brandon Collings and many nieces and nephews.
Sharon was employed at Wyeth Ayerst for 37 and a half years and retired in 2000. In her retirement, she enjoyed hunting, fishing, and being on the Great Chazy River whenever she could. She had a passion for the outdoors and the wilderness. When not hunting and fishing she could be found watching Jeopardy, Antiques Roadshow and Judge Judy or sitting on her screened-in porch doing her daily crossword puzzle. Sharon was a die-hard New York Giants fan all her life, for better or for worse. Some of our favorite memories were spent in her basement cheering on the Giants!
Sharon was a good friend to many and had many friends that she stayed close to throughout most of her life. Albeit her family small, she was an amazing, devoted mother and was most proud of her two daughters Sue and Michelle and their families.
Calling hours/celebration of her life will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Heald Funeral Home on 48 Court Street, Plattsburgh, New York.
A graveside service will be held the following day, Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2019, at St. Mary's Cemetery in Champlain, New York at 11 a.m.
Any donations in Sharon's memory can be made to a charity of your choice.

So sad to hear about Aunt Sharon. She had a great sense of humor and beautiful smile. She was an awesome cook and talented in so many other ways. She was so loving. The world will miss her beautiful spirit. She and my dad are up in heaven having a party. Love you so much Aunt Sharon.

It saddens me to hear this, we just met at Casino in September, and it was great seeing her. I am so thankful for that time! My Thoughts & Prayers go out to you, her loving family, she always talked about you with love and pride! We met when we worked at Ayerst & we spent a lot of time together when I lived in Mooers, such a great friend! Lots of Memories!! ❤️ God Bless you, her family! RIP my Friend! Love Bea
