HOLDEN – Sharon J. Karl, 69, passed away peacefully June 5, 2013, in the comfort of her own home. She was born Dec. 20, 1943, in Bangor, daughter of Stanley Wyman Jordan and Catherine (Finnegan) Jordan.
Sharon graduated from Bangor High School, class of 1961, and went on to work for Eastern Maine Medical Center as a phlebotomist for most of her working career. Sharon loved to sew, cook and take care of her pets, but she most enjoyed the time she spent with her grandchildren and great-grandsons. Sharon had a wonderful sense of humor that came to her effortlessly. She was known for her quick wit, which often happened without even trying.
In addition to her parents, Sharon was predeceased by her husband, Frank Karl; son, William “Billy” Jordan; and grandson, Casey Pearson. She is survived by daughter, Tammy Pearson and partner, Michael Polakowski, of Glenburn; five grandchildren, Derek Pearson and partner, Shannon Kay, of Holden, Jordan Pearson and wife, Ashley, of Hermon, Katie Pearson and partner, Greg Getchell, of Hermon, Krysten Quinn of East Millinocket, and Macy Karl of Brewer; two great-grandsons, Nathan and Brayden Pearson of Auburn; two brothers, Bobby Jordan of Vassalboro and Clayton Jordan of Whitefield; and sister, Stephanie Toman of Brunswick. She will be greatly missed by her dog, Mini. Sharon will be remembered as a loving grandmother and great-grandmother, but her family takes comfort in knowing that Sharon’s broken heart has been mended, as she is reunited with her son, Billy.
The family invites relatives and friends to join in conversation and refreshments 5-7 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at the Family Reception Center of Brookings-Smith, 163 Center St., Bangor. Those who wish to remember Sharon in a special way, may make gifts in her memory to the family, care of Tammy Pearson, 103 Marston Meadow Road, Glenburn, ME 04401.
