Obituary

Sharon Audrene Coles
June 13, 1939 – May 16, 2019
Wenatchee, Washington

Sharon Audrene Coles, 79, passed away on Thursday May 16, 2019, a month before her 80th birthday.

Sharon was born on June 13, 1939 in Morton, WA, to the late Frederick and Midge Marie (Cabe) Sylte. She grew up and attended school in Manson, WA. Sharon married Thomas W. Coles and they had five daughters.

Sharon started as a secretary at age 24 at Wenoka Sales in 1964. She worked her way up to apple broker and then eventually became an onion and potato broker. She liked nothing better than selling her produce to her customers back east. Sharon even sold a load of onions days before she passed and was quoting prices and freight rates. She finished her career as an onion and potato broker for Northwest Growers.

Sharon loved her family first and foremost. She loved the color yellow. She was very proud of her Norwegian heritage. Over the years, she and Tom remodeled the 1916 boarding house that they bought in 1963 into a beautiful and charming home. She dabbled in pottery and made stained glass. She golfed with Tom. She made the best apple pie in the world. Christmas was her favorite holiday. After Tom passed, her most faithful companion was her 15 year old Siamese cat, Sarah. Sharon spoiled Sarah, Sarah kept her company and they were loyal to each other until the end. Gonzaga basketball became a passion of Sharon’s. As she grew older, she enjoyed shopping on QVC for jewelry. She loved having her 11 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren come to visit. They called her Grandma, Blondie, Grandma Mom and Grandma Sharon.

She was preceded in death by her husband Thomas W. Coles, her parents Fred and Midge Sylte and her brother Bruce Sylte.

Sharon is survived by her 5 daughters: Kim Collier of Edmonds (husband Barry, Emilie and Maddie), Kelly Neher of East Wenatchee (husband Mark, Andrea, Steven and Katie), Melissa Bitterman of East Wenatchee (husband Dave, Joshua and Bryce), Angela Coles of East Wenatchee (Beau, Tyler, Casandra and Austin), Heide Coles-Rath of a Selah (husband John) and one brother, Frazier Cleveland Sylte (Uncle Larry) of Wenatchee.
