Sharon Joan Johnson

Jan 24, 1947 - Feb 16, 2021


Sharon Joan Johnson was born in Lubbock, Texas on January 24, 1947 and entered into rest in Applegate, California on February 16, 2021. She was able to be home in her beautiful “tree house” with her sons Ric and Michael holding her hand. Sharon was a wonderful wife, mom, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Her beloved husband and daughter, Bill and Kelly, preceded her in death, and were there to meet her-along with Porkchop, Butch and Whiner, when she made it to heaven. Her family was the most important thing in her life. She was very proud of them and loved them very much. Sharon worked for Pacific Bell phone company for over 25 years, where she made lifelong friends. She then finished her career days in 2017, retiring from Rio Linda High School. Working in the counseling office, she impacted students and faculty alike. Always ready with a quick smile, a listening ear, and good advice-she was an obvious favorite on the Ro Linda High School campus and at the phone company. She was a patriot, and loved her country, and it showed as she honored men and women who served our country. Sharon always took care of others before herself, and it was evident in the lives she touched. Sharon is survived by her sons Ric and Michael and Richard Petty and their wives, her grandchildren Madi, Michaela, Baily P., Patrick, Shelby and Nathan. She is also survived by her brother Boo and sister Anne and their families. She leaves behind many special friends and her sweet dog Penny. We will miss you sweet Sharon- until we meet again…

  • Tammy Kaplan says:

    Dear Sharon, you were such a sweet soul. I don’t think I ever heard you say a harsh word to anyone. I am grateful that we met working together at RLHS, and I’m truly blessed that we became friends. I’m happy to know that you’re rejoicing with Jesus and your loved ones up in heaven. You’ll be missed. Love, The Kaplans

    I am blessed to have worked with Sharon at Rio Linda High School. She advocated for students and was always kind, respectful with everyone. When visiting the Counseling Department I was greeted by her smile, bright eyes and positive energy! She was loyal, honest and I appreciated her friendship.

  • Misti Wilson says:

    My dearest Aunt Sharon. You were always so generous and kind, upbeat and positive. I remember when you lived with us here in Texas and I came home from work one day and you surprised me with several new outfits for work. Just because. Though I miss you deeply, I know you were reunited with those you have missed so dearly. I take comfort knowing you are free from pain and sorrow! I love you oodles!

  • Ric Dolinar says:

    I met Sharon when we were both “VERY” young (19 or so). At the time I didn’t realize how “SPECIAL” our relationship really was, or could be. Sharon and her family made me feel welcome to the point where I felt as though I was one of the family and I thank them for caring about me so much. I often wonder “IF” we would have met at a different time in our lives what would our lives had been like. I’ll ALWAYS LOVE you and if what we believe in is true, we’ll be together again,

  • Traci Tumlinson says:

    My sweet sweet Aunt Sharon, You were always such a positive light. Always happy, always smiling, so kind and generous. Loved your big soft kisses & your sense of humor! I am so glad we were able to see you several times in the last few years. I’m so sad that you didn’t get to make it out to Texas so the whole family could see you! Although it was heart wrenching to see you in your last days here on earth I am so glad and grateful I got to spend some time with you and love on you! I will miss you terribly! I promise to keep in touch and take care of Ric and Michael! Your chains are broken, you’ve been set free, no more pain, no more sorrow! I love you bunches and bunches! Xoxo
