Sharon Elizabeth Kuhbander
1961 - 2011
Sharon Elizabeth Kuhbander, 49, went on her final journey to be with the Lord, June 28, 2011.
Sharon was born June 25, 1961 in Hammond, Ind. to Gilbert and Rose Kuppinger. The Kuppingers moved to Arizona when Sharon was 5 years old, along with her three siblings. Sharon remained in Arizona for the duration of her life, her last several years spent residing in Payson.
Sharon is survived by her only son, Sean of Payson; brother, David of Scottsdale; sisters, Cindy of Littleton, Maine and Teri of Glendale; a sister-in-law, Rene Kuppinger of Phoenix; and her beloved parents, Rose and Gil.
Sharon became a licensed cosmetologist and a business manager after high school. She was a very talented artist and loved to show off her culinary skills to everyone.
Sharon will forever be remembered by family and many friends as a kind spirit who touched all those she met, giving of herself to those less fortunate in life. Her love for animals was no greater than the loving bond she had for her terrier, Stewart.
A celebration of life for Sharon is planned for Saturday afternoon in Phoenix.
