Sharon Louise Stiner Foldvik

colleen-3_edited-1 copySharon was born in  Springfield, Illinois May 9th to Leland and Helen Stiner. A little sister named Shirley (Snyder) was soon to follow. The two were the greatest of friends.


After graduating from Highline High School in 1962 Sharon lived most of her life in Burien, where she met and married her husband Norm Foldvik in 1963.


They were married for a long time before the birth of their first Norm Jr. He was soon followed by another son Erik. Sharon loved both of her boys dearly. She was also the very proud Grandma of Erik’s two daughters Mia and Simone.colleen-1enhanced_edited-1 

She spent most of her working years in the banking and financial fields.


Sharon had a passion for music, playing slide guitar as a little girl to taking her boys to see Motley Crüe! The really great stories she could tell about different shows and concerts and chance meetings of celebrities will be missed.colleen-2


Norm and Sharon owned many collectible vehicles, far too many to list here. She was always patient when the guys got to talking cars and could usually impress them with her width and breadth of knowledge of makes and models,

The thing that anyone who knew Sharon, will tell you that will be the most missed, is her absolute goodness. She was a gentle creature who accepted people for themselves. You always knew that Sharon would have a gracious and kindhearted word for you.


Sharon instructed us to concentrate on the good times, and maybe when we saw a hummingbird to think of her.

    Sharon sure raised a wonderful family man! We have enjoyed getting to know Erik and his family through mutual friends and can only imagine how proud she was of the life that he and Colleen have created. Our thoughts are with you…

    Aunt Sharon was always so kind and happy… I don’t think I ever saw her mad… she was truly a beautiful soul and she will be missed dearly… I’m sending my deepest condolences to Uncle Norm, Eric, Colleen, Mia, Simone, her sister Shirley & all the rest of the family

  • Colleen says:

    Cassie & Lynn , your kind words mean so much to us.

    I need to tell all of Sharon’s stories so I can remember them, and pass them on to the girls. She didn’t tell a lot but when she did they were amazing. She was a really great, patient listener!

    Dick and I miss Sharon very much, she had been in our lives since 1959. Dick was a neighbor of Sharon and used to carry her books to school. That would be Puget Sound Jr. H. Sharon and I shared the same locker in high school. That would be Highline High School. We worked in the school library together, had some classes together. Health class with coach Tice and Mr. Sherriff. We traveled around as a foursome with Sharon’s sister Shirley and friend and neighbor Joyce. In 1962 we went to the Seattle’s World Fair. One of those times we went searching for Elvis for a contest of a radio station. Shirley won that one. Sharon and I never did see Elvis, but we did go to an Elvis concert. Another time the four of us chased Rick Nelson from the airport to his motel just a ways from the tunnel. Dick and the four of us went to a Rick Nelson concert in Dick’s 1952 blue convertible.
    We belonged to The Bon Marche soda club and got to see a Conway Twitty concert. In 1963 Sharon and I married brothers. In 2013 we both celebrated our 50 year anniversary. Also in 2013 the foursome went to the space needle and celebrated 50 years since the World’s Fair opened. In 2004 we were retiring and got to spend more time with each other, going to lunch once a month, usually one of the many casinos in the area. Sharon being the most lucky one of the bunch. We had been described as the Golden Girls, only having more fun. We all miss her terribly, but keep her close. Love Dick and JoAnn
