SHARON VERONICA CORBETT
Born In: CLEVELAND, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born: November 27th, 1946
Passed in: EVANSTON, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: June 27th, 2017
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Sharon Corbett announces her passing on
Tuesday, June 27, 2017 in Strait Richmond Hospital, Evanston.
Born in Cleveland, Cape Breton on November 27, 1946, she is a daughter of the late Robert
“Bob” and Veronica (Steele) Morgan.
Sharon is survived by her husband of 52 years, Kevin; children, Michele “Shelley”
(Michael) Heighton, Calgary, AB and Glenn, Port Hawkesbury; grandchildren, Brent Heighton,
Calgary, AB and Avery Corbett, Port Hawkesbury.
Sharon spent many years as a wonderful homemaker and went back to school, while raising
her children, and became a Master hairdresser for many years in Port Hawkesbury. She also
spent many years caring for children. Sharon was a tireless fundraiser for several
charities, most notably the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Canadian Cancer Society, and
the Kidney Foundation. She was a skilled artist and could put her hand to anything
artistic. Sharon’s skills at baking and cooking were surpassed only by the joy she felt
when someone enjoyed or needed one of her meals or baked goods. Sharon played a sterling
shortstop for the Cleveland Go-Getters back in the day. Sharon always enjoyed a cup of
tea, a good laugh, visits with family and friends, a variety of music, and a lively
debate. She showed immense pride in her children and their accomplishments, no matter how
minor. Sharon had a special place in her heart for her grand-nephew, Andrew S, whom she
loved and adored as if he was her own grandchild. Above all else, Sharon loved her two
grandchildren, Brent and Avery. They were, in her mind, by far her greatest achievement.
Sharon is also survived by brothers, Winston (Paddy), Taunton, Mass., John, Cleveland,
Roddie (Shirley), Port Hawkesbury; and by sister, Lee (Jim) Passmore, Bridgewater. She is
also survived by sisters-in-law, Florence, Cleveland; Kaye, Cleveland and Emily, Bedford.
Sharon was predeceased by brothers, Gerald, Robert, A.J., Walter; and sister, Judy Dwyer.
Sharon’s family would like to express their gratitude for the wonderful care provided by
the Paramedics of EHS, and the entire staff at the Strait Richmond Hospital for providing
her with dignified care. We are also grateful for the spiritual care provided by Father
Conrad Edwards. Thank you to so many friends and neighbors for their kindness and
Visitation will be held Friday, from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m., in Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home,
Funeral mass will be held 1 p.m. Saturday, in St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, Port
Hawkesbury, Father Conrad Edwards officiating. Burial in St. Joseph Parish Cemetery.
Donations in Sharon’s memory may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Nova
Scotia Alzheimer’s Society.
