Sharon Findlay

Sharon Leslie Findlay (61) passed away peacefully on 27th February, 2024, at Foyer La Colombe of the L’Arche Montreal Community, with her L’Arche family members lovingly by her side.

Born in Ste. Hyacinthe on 8th March, 1962, to Joan Hansen and Lawrence Findlay, Sharon lived her rambunctious early life around Montreal.

Sharon’s life-journey is beautifully recorded  since her arrival at L’Arche Montreal on 29th April, 1990. Even though her journey began with difficulties during her infancy and adolescence, she started again by building a life at L’Arche from the moment of her arrival, demonstrating her resilience and adaptability. She shared her qualities of unconditional love, strength, and generosity that extended beyond her L’Arche family to encompass a wide network of loved ones, whom she would always welcome with a glass of water as soon as they sat down.

Sharon loved life: she loved flowers, snow, cats, cakes and so many other things. She was keenly observant and sensitive: she would notice the slightest changes in persons and in situations that happened around her.  She had a grateful heart and a great sense of humour.  Sharon will be remembered for her strong character, her wild laugh and her fervor for life.

Thank you, Sharon, for allowing us to be part of your life-journey.

Until we meet again, we love you Sharon!
