(nee Higgins)

August 21, 1952 – March 12, 2017

Sharon will be greatly missed by her loving husband of 43 years, Arnie Boeyen; her sons David (Kelly nee Nelson) and Shawn (Mark Bracko); and her grandchildren Danika and Nathan. Survived by her sister Linda (Cliff Williams) and brother Ron (Wendy nee Pasher). Predeceased by her parents Evelyn and John Higgins. Sharon will be fondly remembered by her large extended family including many nieces and nephews. Sharon and Arnie fostered many meaningful friendships over the years both at home and while enjoying major Nascar races, usually taking their second home on the road with them. Sharon spent 20+ years at Entrust where her work on internet security standards made the web safer for everyone. The family is grateful for the care she received; the Ottawa Cancer Centre; at-home care, and for end-of life care provided by Central West Hospice (Carling Ave.), where with Arnie by her side, she passed peacefully Sunday morning. Visitation will be at Tubman Funeral Homes Garden Chapel 3440 Richmond Rd, Ottawa on Thursday, March 16 from 1-3 and 6-8 p.m. A service will be held in the chapel on Friday, March 17 at 10 a.m. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers donations to the Ottawa Cancer Centre would be appreciated. Condolences, tributes and donations may be made at
