Sharon Orona

July 10, 1950 — November 10, 2022

Sharon Kay Orona (Foster) passed into the arms of Jesus Christ on November 10, 2022. She was preceded in death by her parents, Leslie and Lucene (Ard) Foster and her brother Donald Foster. She is survived by her faithful husband of 38 years John Orona, her children Scott (Lisa) Napier, Lesley Napier and Daniel (Heather) Orona, and her grandchildren Joshua Napier, Jacob Napier, Jared Napier, Isaac Orona and Asher Orona.

Sharon was born in Cincinnati, OH on July 10, 1950. She graduated from Norwood High School in 1968 and began working at Meijer. Sharon’s purpose in this life was to be a mother and grandmother. She worked hard to provide for her children and give them the best life that she possibly could. Even when her children went out of town she would be so happy when they came back because, “all her chicks were back in the roost.” For as much as she loved her children the joy of her life were her grandchildren. Whether playing in the floor or traveling to baseball games, she was constantly, “just making memories” for all of us.

Even with her children and grandchildren her greatest love was Jesus Christ. Sharon was faithful to the Lord through the end of her life. As a three time cancer survivor, Sharon never wavered in her desire to grow as close to Christ as possible. In doing so, she loved the people around her as though they were her own family. She was constantly in prayer for anyone who asked and always made sure she got on the “right” knee as she was seeking God on another’s behalf.

While Sharon’s life on this earth has ended, her legacy is felt in her children, grandchildren and all the people she loved along life’s journey.
