Sharen was a fiercely devoted mother, grandmother, aunt, a sacrificial giver, and the rock and stronghold of her family. She was a leader in her community and a beautiful lady, inside and out. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

She leaves behind her daughters, Menette Burns and husband Thomas, Melissa Taylor and husband Michael, Michelle Juneau and husband Brian “Eboo,” Dianne “DeeDee” Mahony and husband Rusty; her honorary daughters, Kristie Planetta Jackson and Jennifer Planetta Wascom; sister, Judy Planetta and husband Jim; brothers, Michael Ulrich and wife Lurline, and Allen Ulrich and wife Diane; grandchildren Emily and Claire Burns, Christopher Freese, Brody Juneau, and Reed, Henry and Elliot Mahony.

Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the visitation on Thursday, July 2, 2015 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. at St. Albert Catholic Church in Hammond. Father Randy Cuevas will officiate, and the burial will follow in the Rose Memorial Park Cemetery.
