Sharon Lee Harrington Stagg, loving wife and daughter of Echo, Utah, passed away on Sunday, May 26, 2013, of sudden heart failure after having survived two previous battles with cancer. Sharon was born in Maryville, Tennessee on May 24, 1956 and raised in Arlington, Texas after brief periods of residency in Alaska, Massachusetts and Florida. Sharon graduated from Arlington High School and attended Stephen F. Austin University majoring in elementary education. She moved to Utah with her husband, Scott, in 1983, to enjoy the natural surroundings as she and Scott loved to hunt, fish and camp and they did so as constant companions. Sharon moved to Echo in 2005 and resided there until her passing.
Sharon had many friends among her neighbors and coworkers. She was a hard worker and a loyal employee of The Canyons. Her dogs were an important part of her life and family as they traveled together with her to over 43 states on hunting and fishing trips. One of her passions was musical concerts, having attended at least 500 in her lifetime. She had a kind and loving nature and was a generous person who enjoyed helping others and went out of her way to cheer and validate everyone.
