Born youngest of seven in Wilsonville, Oregon, Sharon Lee Thornton was the last in her family. She met her first husband, Marvin Rose, and had four children named Mark, Doug, Darla, and Duane. After 35 years, Sharon and Marvin went their own ways.
Late in 2000, she lost her youngest, Duane. This brought us all together again. Thats when we met Moms future husband, Dan Butler, and their future dream about owning a small town tavern.
It wasnt too much longer after that, they were asking for help moving them to Astoria, where they bought the Triangle Tavern. In a short time they moved to Uniontown, where they met many special people.
Six years ago, Dan Butler died, and Sharon missed him very much. Within the past two years Sharons health has declined. On May 20, 2014, Sharon passed with her family by her side.
Sharon is survived by her children, Mark, Doug, and Darla; and her grandchildren, Michael, Matthew, Christopher, Sam, Dalton, Maria; and also one great-grandchild, James.
A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 1, 2014, at the Astoria Moose Lodge, 420 17th St.
