Sharon lee tolson
Sharon Lee Tolson was born July 22, 1941 in Hanford, California. She entered Heaven on July 2, 2021, while holding hands with her daughters. An accomplished Californian girl, she grew up on the beaches of Southern California during the best of times. Her beauty was such that she was asked to become a movie star in the late 1950s. Instead of becoming a star, she chose to be wife and mother. He was a complex person who didn’t believe in calling someone an “ex”; once you were in his family it was for life, there was no way out. She is predeceased by her former husband and father of her children, David R. Brown, whom she currently directs, and also her parents, Thomas T. Tolson “the love of her life” and Jessie L. Tidwell ( née Parnell) certainly not the love of her life. Although she loved “her” California, she chose to put down roots in the latter part of her life in Batavia, NY. She loved all the pitfalls that come with living in a small town. Everyone called her “grandma” and she couldn’t have been more proud of that. She was a bit crazy, swore like a sailor and taught the younger generation the finer uses of the “F” word, drank Pepsi from morning till night and had never met a stranger she was not. willing to befriend or invite over the holidays or if you were having a hard time, offer to do your laundry and make corn dogs. She is survived by her brothers William (Vicki) Tolson of Arizona, Leedel and Denis (Kathy) Williamson of South Dakota and Inez American Horse of South Dakota. She is also survived by her children, Mark (Sherry) Brown of St. Helens, Oregon, and Maryann Brown, mother of Michael and Matthew (Amanda) of Long Island, Thomas (Robin) Brown of Northport, Florida, and their children. , Steven (son of Vikki Brown), Craig, Travis, Tim and Casie. She is also survived by her daughter, Debra Dumuhosky (who took care of the toughest jobs and also spoke to her 27 times a day – Alzheimer’s disease on the rise = so many calls) and her partner, William Gregory of Batavia, NY and David Dumuhosky, father of Robert (Jessica) and Julia Rossiter; his daughter, Kathryn Shaver and partner, Keith Bow, of Corfu, NY and Ronald Shaver, father of Maxwell (Rebecca), Sebastian (Melissa) and Kassandra (James Kerwin). Kass was her best friend, the one who was supposed to make sure to keep everyone online and to whom she confided her beloved Pom Teddy because “he only barks when someone’s at the door” and that trait is useful. She died knowing that her favorite people called her “Gigi”; Paige, Everett and Henry Brown, Gabrielle and Olivia Dumuhosky, Alexis Merrell, Brockton Rossiter and Bennett Kelly, Evangeline Kerwin and a whole tribe of great-grandchildren in Florida that she had yet to meet. There are many nieces and nephews who will also be missed. There are no funeral arrangements. A celebration of life will take place when the family can pull itself together. God help us if they have the weather channel in Heaven, Mom. You will be missed. See you later, wonderful.
