Obituary of Sharon Irene Giese

There once was a girl from Wisconsin She liked to wear Indian moccasins ‘it’s Seattle for me!’ She proclaimed with great glee Then promptly married a young boatswain. Sharon Irene Giese passed away at home, in her sleep the morning of June 17, 2006. She is survived by her husband Scott, their son Tristan, daughter Sylvan and other son Shawn along with his wife Valerie and their children Galadriel and Baby X (expected to arrive July 18, 2006). Sharon was raised in the thriving metropolis of Peshtigo barely missing the great fire of ’71. Since her time they have invented electricity, the wheel and installed a traffic light. In the 60’s she left the City of Cheese and headed east for new adventures in the Big Apple. Bright eyed and bushy tailed she learned the ways of the airlines in preparation for the great journeys life held in wait for her. Little did she know that one of the greatest journeys of her life would be taken not on a plane, but in the slipstreams of her heart. In the worlds first known case of online dating she met a strapping young lad through a fax machine and mimeographed her heart afar. But the love she was pursuing was forbidden, for they worked at competing airlines. This lumberjack of a man won her heart amidst the vats of a local brewery. Since this time they met secretly throughout the airports of Wisconsin trying to keep their burning love from the prying eyes of the airlines. In a bold move Scott whisked his lover off to the bright lights of Las Vegas after the planned nuptials in Illinois fell apart due to poor planning. There they sealed their love for all eternity in the vows of matrimony at the 24 Hour Quickie Wedding Chapel and Notary Service. Upon return, Scott convinced her to join the minions of Northwest Airlines, the name of which foreshadowed their destiny. They searched for a forgiving and understanding place where they could begin their new life and raise a family together. After seeing a flyer for the Great Seattle Worlds Fair they knew this City-of-the-Future was where they were meant to be, deep in the Pacific Northwest. She will be greatly missed. She shared so much of her own life, values, and humor that her love will continue to bloom in the lives of her family, grandchildren, and friends. She was always willing to listen and give us, her children, advice about our first little one, comforting us, and making things easy for our new role as parents. Service to be held 10:15 AM Monday, July 3, 2006 at Tahoma National Cemetery 18600 SE 240th St., Kent, WA 98042. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Good Samaritan Hospice.
