Sharon Theresa Hines, age 58, of Ellsworth, WI, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on January 9, 2013 at her home in Ellsworth.
Sharon Theresa (Huppert) Hines was born on August 14, 1954 in Red Wing, Minnesota; the daughter of Leo T. and Rosella (Pechacek) Huppert. Sharon was raised in Ellsworth, WI on her parent’s dairy farm, graduating from Ellsworth High School in 1972. Sharon and Alan (Al) P. Hines were united in marriage on September 20, 1975 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church (Clayfield) in Ellsworth. After graduation she began a long and rewarding career at the 3M Company in the Twin Cities. Sharon was proud to claim that she has been with 3M for over forty years. Sharon would be described as a firecracker with a zest for life. She loved the company of others while entertaining friends and family. Her faith was unwavering as she was a devoted member of St. Francis Catholic Church. She has fond memories of her forty-five years as church organist at St. Francis and Clayfield. The old saying, behind every successful man is an exhausted woman would hold true to Sharon. She has stood by Al’s side supporting and helping with book work in his construction business. Being true soul mates, they have been married for 37 years. They have cherished family and friends and loved spoiling their nieces and nephews.
Sharon will forever remain in the hearts of her husband Alan P.; mother Rosella Huppert of Ellsworth; siblings: Larry T. (Judith) Huppert of River Falls, Lynn Huppert of Ellsworth, Sharlene (Chuck) Kreye of Ellsworth, and Lon (Julie) Huppert of Ellsworth; parents-in-law, Lester & Joyce Hines of Ellsworth; as well as the entire Hines extended family, nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless special friends. She is preceded in death by her father Leo T. Huppert.
