Sharon Anne Pahl (Isted)

January 14, 1944 - January 3, 2024


Sharon Pahl née Isted of Abbotsford, BC passed away on January 3, 2024, after a

nearly three-year battle with cancer. She breathed her last breath at Holmberg

House in Abbotsford, with her husband of fifty-five years sitting at her side.

She was born in Vancouver but had called Abbotsford home since she moved to

the Valley to teach in the late 1960s. She worked at various high schools in SD34,

but her favourite job was as a teacher and librarian in the prison system.

She loved being a mom best. She was good at it.

Sharon was a joy to know, always willing to listen, lend a hand, fight alongside

you, or hold you close, whatever the need. She loved her husband, children, and

family passionately, and she always had your back.

Injustice hurt her heart. She never could quite understand cruelty.

She loved animals of all kinds, dogs and horses most especially. She walked

alongside a few canine loves during her time here.

Sharon was a keen gardener and loved taking people through her flowers in the

spring and summer as they bloomed. She had a green thumb with indoor plants

too. Sharon was knowledgeable about gardening, helped along by her love of

reading, though murder mysteries were where much of her affection lay.

The same can be said of her viewing tastes: she enjoyed British murder mystery

shows and police who-done-its.

She didn’t think she was much of a cook, but she was wrong about that, and we

told her so regularly. Her stroganoff was the best in the world. Ditto her trifle.

A Memorial Service for Sharon will be held on Friday, January 19, 2024, at 1:00

p.m., at St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, 2010 Guilford Drive, Abbotsford, BC.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to a cause near to your heart. Sharon loved

helping other people.

So sorry to hear about Sharon I had the privilege of only knowing her for a few years but found her and her husband such wonderful people. I always enjoyed all the visits with them and learned so much all the time. We need more people like Sharon. Sending love and prayers to the family

From: Esther Stewart (Pahl)
Relation: No I did not at the time of her passing; but we may be part of the Pahl family tree.

My name is Esther Stewart (Pahl). I am sorry to hear of Sharon Anne’s passing. When I read this in the Abby’s News paper; I got to thinking. Pahl is a uncommon name, I was wondering if we are related. This might not be the time to get into this, perhaps; in the future when you have time etc. I would like if we could explore this. My email is countrycharm1893@hotmail.com. Or if you would rather phone; our phone # is 604-854-1020. We live here in Abbotsford, B.C. on a farm in Sumas, we were a working farm, milking cows etc. but are retired but still live on the farm. I would love to check this out, who knows we may be are related. One time we were in Victoria and met a Pahl, on checking our history, they are 2nd cousins to us. Take time to process all that’s happened in these past days, may you find comfort in God. Esther and Gordon Stewart.
