Sharon A. Owen

October 10, 1954 — April 1, 2023

West Chester

Sharon Ann Owen, beloved mother, daughter, sister, and friend, passed away on April 1st, 2023, at Chester County Hospital.

Sharon was born on October 10th, 1954, in Indianapolis, IN, to her two loving parents, Mary Lou Owen and Arnold Owen. Sharon was the eldest of four children.

She is survived by her son, Christopher Owen; father, Arnold Owen; siblings,Ronald Owen and Karen Owen Lefko; and cherished nieces and nephews: Ryan Owen, Kady Owen, Rachel Lefko, and Brian Lefko. She is also survived by her close childhood friends, Pamela Hagerty and Kathy Grubb.

Although her brother Steven Owen, mother Mary Lou Owen, and nephew Michael Lefko have passed, she held them extremely close to her heart.

It was not just family whom she loved; she was also fiercely loyal to her friends and had a selfless nature, often putting the needs of others before her own.

Sharon completed her education in 1973, after graduating from Morgan High School in Clinton, Connecticut. She started her career at the United Parcel Service (UPS) in 1974 in Maryland where her family moved after she graduated. Even after moving to Pennsylvania in 1976, she continued to work and advance within UPS, retiring after 35 years of service.

Of the many things she held close to her heart, nothing shined more brightly than her love for her son. He was her pride and joy, and she dedicated her life to him.

Sharon's personality was one of strength, independence, love, and humor. She had a special talent for remembering birthdays and always made sure her friends and family felt loved and appreciated on their special days. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

We invite you to mourn her loss and celebrate her life on Thursday, April 6th with her Viewing 10:00 AM and Funeral Service beginning 11:30 AM at the Donohue Funeral Home, West Chester. Interment Birmingham Lafayette Cemetery.
