Sharon Lagore

March 23, 1948 ~ September 29, 2020 (age 72)


    Sharon Lagore age 72 of Roseville, passed away Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at the Roseville Rehabilitation and Health Care Center.  Sharon was born March 23, 1948, in Kansas City, Missouri, to Elsie Lagore.

    Surviving to mourn her passing are several Cousins and 2 very close friends Theresa (Bill) Noel, Monmouth, Mary Ann Shrader, Roseville.

    Sharon was preceded in death by her mother: Elsie Rogers, father Lewis F. (Mick) Stoneking, step father: Ralph Rogers, and by less than 12 hours her brother, Lewis Kent Stoneking.

    Sharon was a fighter from the beginning of life having been born with Cerebral Palsy.  She decided early that she was going to get the most out of her life letting nothing stop her.  She had many years of independence which she loved to reminisce about especially when that independence was taken from her.

    She suffered two major medial events in her life which she pushed her way through, again fighting all the way.  At the age of 57 she entered Roseville Rehabiitation Center following a cervical surgery which left her paralyzed from the neck down.  Within the year she was back up walking with assistance.  She fought hard to get back what she could.  Sharon said: “I have had to fight all my Life”, so she knew well how to do it.

    Sharon loved being with people, loved to tease and joke.  She was always concerned with how other were doing and kept a close eye on other residents at the nursing home.  When she lost her ability to walk she kept independent with her mobile chair.  She loved to go outdoors to sit in the sun ride up to the Ice Cream Shack or just sit and real  She was a avid reader and loved watching her “soaps”

    Sharon loved her family, her friends, her Native American roots, Kevin Costner and the Cubs!  She loved and appreciated so many of the staff at the nursing home who cared for her over these many years.  While, sometimes feisty, she appreciated the care she received.

    Sharon was a great role model, to all who knew her, showing how to persevere and never give up.  She loved the Lord and her Catholic faith.
