In Memory of Sharon White

Sharon Sue White, age 75, of Hudson, WI, formerly of Bronson, FL & Rosemont, IL, passed away unexpectedly the afternoon of Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, MN. Sharon was born to parents Arnie & Mary Butenshoen in Chicago, IL on January 30, 1945. She grew up alongside her two siblings in the suburbs of Chicago until her graduation from high school. Sharon worked as a loving caregiver throughout her career to those who needed specialized care. So, when it came time to start a family of her own, Sharon was more than ready to provide the special love & care that only a mom can to her two sons, Mike & John. Sharon’s family grew when she met Mike White. By chance, Sharon & Mike’s children became friends in school, which sparked the makings a friendship between the two of them that blossomed into love & an exchanging of vows on December 29, 1987. In the 33 years that followed are countless cherished memories & shared adventures.

In 1998, Sharon’s family relocated to Hudson, WI to be closer to her parents, & so she could give them the care she had been giving to others during her time as a professional caregiver. Aside from her passion for aiding those in need, Sharon was also a devoted Christian. She was very active in the church & prayer groups. Sharon enjoyed spending her quiet time reading Christian novels & books. She also loved animals of all kinds; especially her dogs. What Sharon loved to spend her time doing most was watching over her grandkids. Her compassionate spirit, big, open heart, & gentle nature will never be forgotten by those who were blessed to be closest to her.

Sharon will remain in the hearts of her beloved husband of 33 years, Mike; children, John Goggin of Louisiana & Mike Goggin of Hudson, WI; step-children, Michael (Anne Marie) White of Pembrooke Pines, FL, Mari White-Carnegie of Williston, FL, & Jonathan White of Detroit, MI; seven grandchildren, Tyler, Jordan, & Chayce Goggin, Michael & Taylor White, & Kayla Michelle & Kinley Carnegie; two great-grandchildren, Rylan & Laken; siblings, Linda (Randy) Froehlich & Daniel (Suzie) Butenshoen; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family & friends.
