Sharon Barton Selph, 66, passed away from breast cancer on Wednesday, March 9, 2011, surrounded by her family in Snowflake. The family will celebrate her life at a get-together in June in Burbank, Calif.

She was born June 8, 1944, in Glendale, Calif.

Sharon grew up in Burbank, and graduated from Burbank High in 1962. She worked as a licensed vocational nurse at Antelope Valley Hospital, and at Lockheed as a department receptionist/secretary.

Don and Sharon married in 1990, and Don’s company, Lockheed, relocated them to Marietta, Ga., for seven years. A transfer to Arizona in 1997 moved the couple to Phoenix. After Don’s retirement in 2006, the two realized their dream and built a horse ranch in Snowflake.

Sharon was an avid crafter, knitter, cook and baker her whole life.
