5 Guestbook Entries for Sharon Chase Nechasek

  1. Sharon was my cherished friend for 54 years. I will miss her intelligence, her directness, her wisdom and her ability to advise me without judgement. We were an unlikely pair; a Protestant from rural Upstate New York and a Jewish girl from the Bronx. But it worked and the friendship endured. Thank you Sharon for all the memories we shared in Brooklyn Heights, Buffalo and Connecticut. For this I will always be grateful.

  2. My sister, Beth and I both fondly recall your 50th wedding anniversary which evoked so many wonderful memories. Sharon has been a part of our family for almost as long as I can remember. Thank you for bringing her into the family.

  3. I am so sad to hear that Sharon passed away. She was always so kind to me as a kid growing up when we used to vacation in Maine. I can still hear her singing the lobster song. I always loved spending time with her on our trips…

    Love, caitlin

  4. I am so sorry to hear about Sharon’s passing. I worked with Sharon when she was employed at The WorkPlace. She was an exceptionally smart and funny individual. We often shared stories of our European adventures and she was always helpful in providing me with destination travel tips. She had a great sense of humor which often came out in her story telling. My condolences to her family.
