Sharon Jane Bertrand, a long-time resident of Dearborn Heights passed away on July 18, 2022 in West Bloomfield, Michigan. She was born on March 16, 1946 in Detroit, the daughter of Edward and Jane Bertrand.
Sharon was preceded in death by her sister, Sandra (Dave) Engel. She is survived by two brothers, Edward Bertrand and Dennis (Sandra) Bertrand. Sharon was the proud Aunt of Lori (Matt) Hoener, Frank (Rhonda Austin) Engel, Jody (Mike) Bartnicki, Kimberly (Jason) Lindon and Jeanette (Shaun) Johnson. She is the most loving Aunt to her great-nieces and great-nephews - Taylor, Carly, Connor, David, McKenna, Samantha, Emma, Carson and her great-great-nephew, Camden.
Her first and foremost priority was her faith in God. It was the foundation of who she was. She continued to always stay in God’s Word and it was her faith that comforted her whether it was through celebrations or challenges she faced in her life journey.
She was deeply devoted to her family. As an Aunt to her many nieces and nephews, there was something incredible about witnessing the growth and expansion of her family. She had a unique relationship with each one of them and considered it a privilege to be a part of their lives. It was a thrill as she watched them grow and was able to learn about their personalities, the similarities and differences between each of them and who they resembled in the family.
She loved spending time with her family and friends. She had a gift for creating seasonal ceramics which she hand-painted and generously shared with those close to her. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
