On Tuesday, May 16, three days past her 54th birthday, Sharon Ann Regular (Doody) of Dunville, lost her battle with breast cancer.

Sharon grew up in Admiral's Beach, St. Mary's Bay. She lived in a two storey house overlooking the water, with loving parents and five rowdy siblings. She met Shawn in St. John's in 1982 while completing her post-secondary education. She survived motorcycle rides into 'the Beach' and he survived meeting all the brothers so they were married in 1990. She was a devoted wife and eagerly became a mother. Like any good mama, Shane and Kristen were the centre of her world. She worked both outside and inside the home throughout their formative years and always managed to provide hugs, kisses, discipline and a safety net for the kids to grow and spread their wings. She also made time to be a doting daughter, loving sister, aunt and Godmother and loyal friend. Sharon bravely served as her brother Freddy's bone marrow donor in 2001 when he fought his own battle with cancer. While being a modest, private person, Sharon loved to be surrounded by family and friends. She liked nothing better than time spent with good company, good food and music, as long as it wasn't country. She will be fondly remembered for her warmth, her generosity and her quiet, simple way of always being there for the people in her life.
